Well, that was fast. Right on the heels of the announcement that John Galliano is no longer working as a designer at Christian Dior thanks to the combined efforts of a video revealing an anti-semitic rant and the accusation that a similar interaction took place over the weekend, people are already whispering, "CONSPIRACY!" We're giving that a big ole' eye-roll. Catty chitter-chatter is circulating the front rows of fashion shows in Europe and the making the rounds on the interwebs that Dior has had the axe sharpened for Galliano for some time, and that they've been waiting for something like this so they could drop it square on his neck. Well, that explains how quickly this all went down....but it also could just be a huge luxury house trying to cover their hides to ensure that fancy rich people (some of whom just may be Jewish) will still throw down top dollar for their wares. Conspiracy? More like good business, if you ask us.
And then on to the three kabillion dollar question. Who the eff is going to replace him? People have already throw around the names of Ricardo Tisci, who currently designs at Givenchy and Alber Elbaz who is at the house of Lanvin. Damn! People didn't even have to think for a few seconds, those names were already at the tip of their tongues! Whomever it is, there has to be some major skill involved seeing as Dior is one of the few houses that still has a couture show, and that thing ain't for dummies. You've got to be able to work some Rumpelstiltskin skills to be a-weaving those sorts of fancy dresses. We think this might be the perfect time to bring in either Lauren Conrad or Whitney Port -- obviously just kidding.
Who knows what will happen next. This drama is making our head spin. Is it Friday yet?
