Since 1996 John Galliano (pictured above) has been the Creative Director of Christian Dior and has been credited for giving the fashion house that contemporary, edgy, whimsical look we all associate Dior with today. As a designer, Galliano is almost genius. His designs are eye-catching and beautiful with a very theatrical feel, which is why his designs are so sought after by celebrities, first ladies, and even princesses. If you aren't familiar with the designer, here are a few of his memorable designs:

It has been said that "the genius who runs to madness is no longer genius", and sadly this seems to be the case for Galliano. After his innapropriate outburts last week, the designer will have to appear in court and may face up to six months in prison. His outrageously offensive remarks lost him the respect of many fans, including Natalie Portman (current face of Dior). It was announced last Friday that Galliano has been fired from his position, and he did not appear at Sunday's show for his own label.
With Dior's creative director position open, major changes are in the air for the fashion world. Since the videos of Galliano's behavior hit the internet, rumors have been spreading about who will take his place and what changes this will bring. VOGUE online reported that Riccardo Tisci, currently creator director of Givenchy, is the favorite in the running for Dior's position. However, nothing official has been announced. The next couple of weeks could turn into a game of fashion house musical chairs, and the look of Dior (and other fashion houses) might never be the same.
