Blog: Who's stepping into Galliano's shoes?

Katie Smith | 14 March 2011

Following the dismissal of designer John Galliano, rumours have spread about who will replace him.

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has revealed Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci as a favourite.

Tisci was Paddy Power's favourite at 3/1 on 1 March but his odds were only 8/11 when the book closed yesterday (14 March). 

"We're not sure if it was the unconfirmed rumours that Tisci had the job driving the betting but it certainly looks like the job is his!" said spokesperson for Paddy Power, Sharon McHugh.

Possible candidates for the job also include Alber Elbaz at 9/2, Roland Mouret at 5/1 and Stefano Pilati at 6/1. Lower down the list, Katie Price could also have a chance, although very small at 1000/1.

Paddy Power has now opened a book on who will replace Tisci at Givenchy should he confirm his move to Dior. Olivier Theyskens and Phoebe Philo are amongst those on the list.

We will have to wait and see who has the hot spot...
