The style question on everyone's minds is who will be John Galliano's replacement at Dior. Women's Wear Daily named three candidates -- rising talent Haider Ackermann (Karl Lagerfeld once said he'd hand Chanel over to him), former Dior Homme designer Hedi Slimane and Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci.

Some other ideas being floated? Stefano Pilati, Alber Elbaz, Alexander Wang and Olivier Theyskens. And the fashion crowd had even more guesses as told to Hilary Alexander of the Telegraph. It's not exactly a short list.

WWD notes, "It is understood Dior is in no hurry -- and is legally unable -- to name a successor until it has completed its procedure to terminate Galliano's employment." It could take at least several weeks.
