If you haven’t heard by now that Christian Dior 2009 Haute Couture spectacle était fe’roce, as Christian Siriano from Project Runway would say…FIERCE. The models, hair, makeup, dresses, backdrops, and music-very couture. I am so ready to see these looks hit the mainstream this fall.
The bar jacket which is my favorite was the item that had all the women buzzing. It is definitely the iconic piece of the collection bringing the waistline back. You will notice that they played with a lot of fabrics like ruffles, a texture that they started out with then silk chiffon. A way the designer likes to bring a sexual undercurrent into their new direction. The collection was not extravagant, but highly sophisticated with intricate details. The jackets that added panels of fabric cascading like a waterfall or the outfits where all volume is carried on the hips, not forgetting the belts, left me speechless. Let me stop blabbing and let you enjoy the show for yourself.
