Riccardo Tisci confirmed for Dior?

Twitter is abuzz with talk that the Givenchy Creative Director will replace John Galliano at Dior

The big question on the fashion pack’s lips this week has been who will replace John Galliano at Dior? Now, if Twitter is to believed, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci may be the answer.

Last night, the social networking site was abuzz with talk that Dior had found its new Creative Director, after fashion insider Derek Blasberg tweeted, ‘I was just told backstage at the @KatyPerry concert (of all places!) that Riccardo Tisci is CONFIRMED at Dior. I leave #PFW for a second…’

But Tisci isn’t the only name in the hat. Whispers that Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz was a forerunner have been circulating for days, with fuel added to the fire when Style.com tweeted yesterday, ‘Not to add to the Dior rumor mill, but people in Paris are asking, why has the Lanvin team been in tears all day?’

Something tells us this game of fashion musical chairs could go on for a while – stay tuned for all the latest….
