Christian Dior Couture Spring 2011

Where would Haute Couture be without the artistic genius of John Galliano? No where near as fabulous...Galliano's ladylike confections for Christian Dior Spring 2011 were a phenomenal ode to fashion illustrator extraordinaire Renee Gruau, whose commercial work is best associated with the house of Dior. Aaah the graduated layers of frothy tulle, exaggerated full skirts and painted gowns, elaborately simple headpieces, painted on eyebrows and shiny red lips. I'm gleefully exhausted just thinking about the amount of work Dior's seamstresses and pattern makers put into this gorgeous collection...
