Is Marc Jacobs headed to Dior?

Marc Jacobs is reportedly in talks to take over at Christian Dior.

The House of Dior, perhaps in an act of penance for John Galliano’s anti-Semitic rant that resulted in his being fired as the chief designer of the Parisian brand, is considering the Jewish Jacobs for the open position.

Whether or not Jacobs’ very American aesthetic would be a good fit for the French brand, at least the Dior powers that be won’t have to worry about him unleashing a tirade against the Chosen People. Or growing a ridiculous looking mustache.
