So last week I discussed John Galliano (who designs for Dior) and how his clothes inspire me.
This week it is Dior designs that make me swoon. And by Dior, I mean Dior Dior, as in Christian Dior who founded the fashion House of Dior in 1947.
Dior these days makes me want to do art. Dior then makes me want to wear the gowns as I dance all night, and still have danced some more...
Above image was part of his original line in 1947. This layered skirt seems to be making a revival on the current runway... but can anything really compare to a gown this lovely?I love how this black gown is super sexy but still classy. What happened to that balance... now even refined women tend to leave their houses all gussied up as if they are about to work a corner somewhere. This on the other hand is neck-breakingly sexy and still tasteful. Love it!
This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE Diors. Maybe ALL TIME FAVORITE EVER OF ANYONE. This was a 1949 design and whats-her-face Miley recently wore a dress that got a lot of credit for looking like this. For the record, no comparison! This is by far more dramatic and gorgeous... plus Miley just cant pull off elegant. She is cute not elegant.
This is another 1949. You can tell its from the same runway. It reminds me of a throw-back to Jane Austen... can't you just see Miss Elizabeth Bennett in this? Ah- no wonder I love it!
Ahhh.... aren't you swooning right about now? It's like gown overload where you just float on cloud nine even after a really overwhelming week because look at all this loveliness. I want gowns like these - even if I had no place to wear them I would just sweep gracefully around the house throwing in a twirl here and there. Or stand on a fancy stair case with my arms posed in just the right manner in hopes that someone would walk by the window and catch a glimpse of me.
