… to John Galliano for bringing back Christian Dior‘s iconic New Look in this his 15th year as Creative Director for the House of Dior.  We say “Bravo!” to the graceful shawl-collared jackets and voluminous skirts, to the colorful layers of silk, tulle, flowers and feathers and the glossy red lips.  Mr. Dior would’ve been so proud… What a way to kick off the Spring 2011 Couture shows!

P.S.  Galliano was inspired by Rene Gruau‘s illustrations for Dior, now on exhibit at Somerset House in London.  Don’t you just love fashionable art?

    Maybe that’s what we’ll wear today: Flowers and Feathers! Either that or cashmere and tweed.

    I need a fancy event to go to so that I could talk myself into one of those magical gowns!

    These are wonderful! Love everything about the looks – the hair and make-up is a perfect fit. The flowers and feathers probably matches the snow outside your window! Hope you’re cozy inside 🙂 xo Kelly
