John Galliano has landed a new job.

Dior's former creative director, who was fired in 2011 when he was caught on camera making anti-Semitic slurs at a Paris café, has been offered a position at Russian perfume and cosmetics company L'Etoile.

The designer is apparently due to start his new role, which includes working on their private-label cosmetics line, on May 22.

According to Russian media reports, L'Etoile is similar to high street beauty emporium Sephora.

Galliano has been out of a job since his fall from grace, which also saw him dismissed from his namesake label.

His good friend Oscar de la Renta offered him a chance at redemption in January 2013 with a three-week residency at his studio, working on his autumn/winter 2013 colleciton.

Despite the role not becoming permanent, Oscar said: ''I very strongly felt that when people fall, you should try to lift them up. I think everyone in life deserves a second chance. I'm not sure about a third or fourth. It was great to have another eye. It's so important to have someone challenge you.''

The star has also designed costumes for Stephen Fry's new theatrical production of Oscar Wilde's 'The Importance of Being Earnest'.
