>Fashion Fantastic: Christian Dior Chique

Modern fashion can be fabulous. But judging from these photographs, you have to be a millionaire to afford any of it. Nevertheless, let’s sit back and enjoy the beauty of John Galliano’s creations. Some bold choices with Fifties chique make-up and hairdo’s.

The colours from the show greatly varied from pastels to bright reds. Volume seemed a key word as there was an abundance of flowing gowns coupled with dramatic headdresses and detail.

Restrained palette: Christian Dior haute couture
Note all the red flowing designs and the exaggerated puff sleeves. To say not everyone could get away with this look would be an understatement. That being said, some of the models look seriously underfed and in need of a dozen Happy Meals. 

My personal favourite. This one actually seems relatively wearable as far as designer clothing goes. I love the big fluffy shoulder. Would certainly leave that black face scarf home.

Here come the headdresses. With their fierce red lipsitck and classy do’s, they could star in Mad Men and not look out of place. Save for the red eyebrows perhaps…

    >Bedankt voor je reactie. Ja, er zijn genoeg mogelijkheden als je goed zoekt. Ze hebben ook genoeg patronen voor je om te lenen en je komt allerlei soorten mensen tegen. Het is een internationale hobby. 🙂
