>> I'm sure you all have gorged yourselves on the Dior Haute Couture shots by this time -- I don't blame you, I couldn't wait either. The triumvirate of Galliano on gowns, Pat McGrath on makeup, and Stephen Jones on headwear definitely ruled the runways with an iron fist -- and I mean that in the most complimentary way of course -- what a spectacle it was.
Although I do have to say I have my distinct favorites -- some of the Japanese reference was just too overblown in a lot of the dresses, so the dresses that caught my eye were more subdued: Morgane Dubled in a layered garnet dress (she looked like she could have been in a very posh Tim Burton movie), Jacquetta Wheeler in a cream tulle confection (both below), and of course Shalom Harlow looked exquisite as the bride (top). I really have no words to convey the beauty these three dresses illustrate for me -- and the idea of folding fabric like origami into a dress is just out of this world. You'll understand my ecstasy when you see the dresses in high quality: Morgane, Jacquetta, Shalom 1, Shalom 2.
