Christian Dior Couture Spring 2012

Couture Fashion Week: Christian Dior

Christian Dior Couture Spring 2012

Just in time for award season, Bill Gaytten debuted an ultra-feminine collection of ladylike frocks and gowns begging to be worn on the red carpet. With a nod to vintage Dior, Gaytten delivered cinched waists balancing fit and flair shapes and classic ladylike silhouettes with folded open collars, exposing a hint of decolletage ever so tastefully. The structure and glamour of the Old Dior house are there, but not without Gaytten's modern updates — we're treated to fresh sheer pleats, sleeves, and tops, while evening gowns are a study in delicate texture with organza and chiffon layers. We can think of little else but who might walk the Oscars red carpet in one of these gowns.

  • Trends: Ladylike, sheer.
  • Colors: White, black, gray, purple, and red.
  • Key Look: The white sheer frock, nipped at the waist with black floral embroidery.
  • Accessories: Full-length gloves, black patent belts, classic pumps in red, black, white, and nude.
  • Who Would Wear It: Charlize Theron, red-carpet beauties, and Hollywood A-listers.
