Marc Jacobs seemingly has enough on his plate, designing for three labels, but the fashion designer is now reportedly in talks to take over as head designer at Dior, following John Galliano's dismissal.

Fashion Designer John Galliano testified in court on Wednesday that he remembers nothing about the anti-Semitic rant that got him fired from French fashion house Christian Dior and claimed his "triple addiction" to alcohol, barbiturates and sleeping pills were to blame.

Galliano apologized for the diatribe, saying these were not his views but instead reflect "the shell of John Galliano ... someone who needs help," the Associated Press reports.
