Retro inspired catwalk #6

Christian Dior

(Spring 2011 Couture)
Paris Haute Couture weekend has started, and John Galliano is one of the few who understands that often less is not more: more is more. The style is in many ways retro: 40s tailored skirts, 50s silhouette with full skirts, cinched waists, hats, and 40s/50s hairstyles, but on the other hand the silhouette is so over the top that it sometimes give me that baroque feeling. If you mix in the masks as well, it feels like a glamorous masquerade ball. On top of that you have this kind of futeristic makeup look going on. Galliano makes this bold mix look both sexy, flirtatious and elegant.

Pictures are taken from style.com, and I would recommend you to take a look at the complete collection and the wondefull detail shots.
