Despite the fact that we're really not sure if John Galliano has been legally released from his contract at Dior, a bunch of fashion people are swearing on their grandma's graves that Riccardo Tisci is confirmed as his successor at the storied French fashion house. (Actually, other than Derek Blasberg, they're just casually hinting, but same difference.)

Fashion Magic 8 Ball: Now that Tisci's at Dior, every new campaign will be Mariacarla, Mariacarla, Mariacarla. Be Italian! --@FaranKrentcil
Not surprising, to the say the least. We imagine that those of us in New York will wake up tomorrow morning with an interesting press release or two in our inboxes. For those of you in Paris, keep those tips coming.
