Last week, Marc Jacobs seemed to be only a few awkward dinner parties away from confirming his appointment at Dior, but today British Vogue reports that LVMH would rather keep him at Louis Vuitton, as many insiders suspected from the start. From their post:

"For Dior, it's a pretty tricky situation, as the three favourites really can't take the job," a source close to LVMH told us. "Haider Ackermann is said to be 'way too edgy' for Dior; Marc Jacobs wanted the job a lot, but LVMH wants him to stick with Vuitton; and Riccardo Tisci simply refused, saying that he was feeling more than comfortable with the job at Givenchy. So nobody's taking over so far."
