Riccardo Tisci black and white portrait shot.jpgRiccardo Tisci has all but been confirmed to replace John Galliano at Christian Dior, say fashion insiders.

Derek Blasberg took to Twitter overnight to reveal, "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..."

However, Tisci told Style.com that he "felt this was a strong, positive season. And I'm happy at Givenchy." As the rumours intensify, it seems Alber Elbaz could be another candidate in the for the job with Style.com also tweeting: "Not to add to the Dior rumor mill, but people in Paris are asking, why has the Lanvin team been in tears all day?"

This was fueled by further sightings of Jason Wu on the front row at Lanvin on Friday. Could he be about to replace Elbaz who has accepted the Dior position? Oh the goss!
