Christian Dior’s Spring 2010 Couture show had a very obvious equestrian theme.

The first few models wore modernized 1860′s side-saddle riding habits which included fitted jackets with stiff peplums over a high necked white blouse with a frothy collar.

Some sported black velvet top hats with fishnet veils, whilst others wore grey streaks in their hair.

Whips were also included with these looks, to also play up to the equestrian theme.

It wasn’t all about equestrian chic, the cocktail lace cocktail dress with tulle floral appliqué flowers were breath-taking beautiful.

I loved the sculpted ballgowns in contrasting colours of burgundy, chocolate, mustard, blue, ivory and black were no doubt the show stoppers.

I loved the volume and contrasting detailed trains.

Accessories were supersized with large earrings, necklaces and bracelets which looked heavy as they decorated the models.

I love the ending of this video were Galliano drops to his knees to kiss Karlie Kloss’ hand. She’s the current face of Dior.
