You can always count on Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld to give his two pence worth when it comes to the latest fashion hot topics, and boy do we love him for it.

When discussing the much speculated subject of who Dior’s new creative director should be, Lagerfeld was more than happy to put forth his closest fashion buddie for the job.

“Well I’m not a consultant there, but I think Riccardo Tisci would be good, and then Haider Ackermann at Givenchy – not because they’re friends of mine, but because they’re good,” said Karl.

However, the Parisian designer was less forthcoming about the future of Balmain.

“Forget about it! This was a job done by a fashion editor,” he said, reports SkyShowbiz. “I don’t even know the name of the man who did it, so don’t ask me about that.”

Ouch! At least he’s honest, eh?
