The Christian Dior Fall 2010 Couture presentation was a glorious feast to my eyes.
Every piece was vibrant with colour. Even the black pieces had a pop of colour with the exception of look 24.
John Galliano is a master of his craft. I was in total awe of each piece.
The show recalled the ‘Tulip line’ designed by Christian Dior in 1953.
The floral theme was highlighted by a dramatic backdrop of giant parrot tulips.
It was also highlighted in every piece worn by the models.
They were the stems to the upturned flowers they were wearing.
Everything was so extravagance. From the colour to the swing skirts with cinched waists, to the ballgowns, to the various textures plus layers and layers of detail.
Sheath dresses in mohair and boucle resembled fields of wildflowers in bloom and layered skirts looked like petals.
The gowns were so completely mesmerising. They were big, beautiful and of course resembled petals with ruffles cascading over voluminous skirts.
Eva Green would look amazing wearing that ballgown above. I’m longing for her to return to a more dramatic way of dressing on the red carpet, and this gown has her name on it.
I loved the finishing touches.
Vine-like heels which wrapped around the models feet, and the models heads were wrapped in cellophane of different colours as though they were bouquets of flowers.
