John Galliano's inspiration for this marvelous collection was Rene Gruau . The mannered posture of the gloved hands was frozen letting you know that this is a sophisticated, glam woman. Bold lips, 50's parisian silhouettes at first, then more retro. I loved the swirling fan-pleat circle skirts.Beautiful hues of pink, lemon, violet, and pastel blues were faded and shaded in with overlays of stocking-colored tulle, swirled up into flower-form bustiers, and let out again into multilayered skirts.
I will always love what Christian Dior has to offer for the couture shows. Always exceptional, unique, and beautiful.
