John Galliano vs. Alexander McQueen
So we're talkin about the two biggest creative geniuses of the fashion world. Their runway shows are spectacular every season. After reading rave reviews on Galliano and McQueen's shows, I'm extremely interested in knowing who you guys think is THE best designer/artist/showman out of the two.

P.S.: McQueen is a possible successor to Dior if Galliano ever decides to quit.

Eee.

Can I sit on the fence, please?

I don't want to make a choice.

Personally, I think both of them can do amazing evening dresses ... but when it comes to suits, I'd give the vote to McQueen. When it comes to the topic of working with details, however, Galliano wins hands down.

Whoa. Imagine someone with the pattern-making skills of McQueen and the meticulous attention paid to details that Galliano has.

Sorry I can't do it. I just can't choose between these two they are both fantastic to me. I love them equally.

I always thought Alexander left Givenchy on a sour note so I don't see him going back to the LVMH party but then you never know.
