A Look At Dior Couture

I'm not sure how Galliano does it, designing under his own name, as well as Christian Dior ready to wear, and couture. (Well, a fleet of designers and well-staffed ateliers probably helps). Add another line and he'd be right up there with the Kaiser, who designs Chanel, Fendi, as well as his eponymous line.

It's not that I don't appreciate Galliano's aesthetic, but I do think that he has mastered the art of a show. Galliano knows better than anyone how to maximize the use of theatricality to the nth degree. Dare I say it, but strip down to the clothes, and sometimes they're a little hit or miss for me.

His recent couture show, however, is a hit. Besides some of the vampy transparent looks, I thought these were among the best. I'm sure the ladies who lunch will love the white lace number in particular.

OMG!...But reality tv is really real! If that were true, that means I am, in fact, as boring as the hills. (The Hills?) And some would think, a mean spirited diva to boot. At least it has given me a lot to live up to. (I actual relish the diva role.)

And thanks for the shout out about my blog!
