Dior Spring 2011 Couture

We can always count on John Galliano for a little vintage glamour!! Here at Dior Spring 2011 Couture shown in Paris last week, Galliano pays tribute to René Gruau, Dior's fashion illustrator of the 40's and 50's.

Galliano~ who started as an illustrator himself before moving to design~ took references from Gruau's work and incorporated into his fabrics in the form of watercolors and illusions of pencil strokes and graduated three dimension with light.

The hair designed by Orlando Pita and the makeup by Pat McGrath fit the times and the Gruau's iconic beauties. If you have ever seen the first Barbie dolls, you will notice striking similarities.




Here are some highlights!

I just had to tweet that photo of the model with the red lipstick and winged-tip eyeliner - that look is just criminally devine.
