Fall 2007 Couture: Christian Dior


The haute couture show is always an extravagant event in itself, but when you're celebrating your 60th anniversary like the house of Christian Dior was yesterday, you really go all out. 1,000 people were invited to the show, asked to adhere to a dress code of "extreme elegance," and treated to somewhat of a supermodel reunion (Naomi, Linda, Gisele, Helena, Amber, but sadly no Kate), all of which took place - on top of everything else - at L'Orangerie at Versailles.

But then John Galliano has never been one for the minimal runway show approach - never from a man who ends his show by walking out in full matador costume! The collection itself took influence from the age-old pastime of creating living portraits, and sent his models out dressed as though they had walked out of an Impressionist, Pre-Raphaelite or Goya painting - bounties of billowing fabric, rich colors and corsetry. Other models, like Gisele, were a walking image of black and white photography. Like any Galliano show, there were hits and misses, but all in all, a wonderful tribute - to both the great Dior, and the great masters of art.
