Spring Couture week kicks off with Christian Dior. Oh, yes. Inspired by one of the first American fashion designers, Charles James, renowned for being a master at cutting, the influence is evident in Galliano's highly dramatic, sculptured forms. Equestrian style, as well as romanticism, are also present. The house's current muse, Karlie Kloss, is adorably severe in a red peplum jacket and asymmetrical plaid skirt, veiled topper, whip, riding boots, et al. Bowed, cinched, and pleated gowns fit for a queen rule, while beading and lace supply lavish texture. Frothy white and meringue daywear round out the exquisite couture collection.

For lots more fabulous Dior,
