Christian Dior 2012 Spring Couture




So, the Spring Couture shows have started in Paris, but there were no invitations in my mailbox. That's so weird, right? Anyways, how beautiful was this show? It was very Dior and lady like. It was couture, but extremely wearable. The detail of the draped chiffon and organza topped with the embroidery... the touch of color provides so much depth to the pieces. It looks very soft and sweet. I love how seeing through to the skin does not take away from the dress, but gives it a hint of allure. There's a floor length black dress that needs to be worn on the red carpet. The collection was full of this sophisticated, sheer combo. How did they manage putting those two together without making it vulgar? It's like a magic trick and I'm smitten.
