Riccardo Tisci Dior Page 1
Cool people talking to other cool people is the bread and butter of Interview, and every month we can’t wait to see who the magazine will pair together. Included in the June/July double issue is a little established fashion royalty/new fashion royalty tête-à-tête. So, what exactly did Donatella Versace and Riccardo Tisci chat about?
From the moment John Galliano was fired from his post at Dior, Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci has been considered a frontrunner. The flames were fanned early, when Derek Blasberg tweeted that Tisci had been confirmed. Someone gave him the (maybe, possibly, probably) true dish backstage at a Katy Perry concert. And in an interview with W, Karl Lagerfeld said he would like to see Tisci go to Dior and Haider Ackermann take over at Givenchy.
At some point while we were relaxing after dinner last night, fashion writer and man-about-town Derek Blasberg got a message that’s been retweeted and reblogged around the fashion world: “I was just told backstage at the @KatyPerry concert (of all places!) that Riccardo Tisci is CONFIRMED at Dior.”
