After much anticipation, Burberry has named its new chief creative officer: Riccardo Tisci. The celebrity-favorite Givenchy alum will officially take over the helm on March 12 and relocate from Paris to London. Tisci succeeds Christopher Bailey, who just presented his final Burberry collection on February 17 during London Fashion Week. 

"I am honored and delighted to be joining Burberry as its new chief creative officer and reuniting with [former Givenchy CEO] Marco Gobbetti," Tisci said in a statement. "I have an enormous respect for Burberry’s British heritage and global appeal and I am excited about the potential of this exceptional brand." We have a feeling Tisci's celebrity pals, including the Kardashians, Bella Hadid, Naomi Campbell, and Kate Moss, are just as excited as we are to see what he has up his sleeve.
