Christian Dior Fall 2011

Well it looks like the people at Christian Dior are making it ABSOLUTELY fine without Galliano. This Fall runway reminds me of the fantastical story of Peter Pan with the long trench coats, the knee length skirts, and the stunning lace up boots. There were lots of jewel toned colors mixed with minuet, olive greens, and “fall” colors, which was a definite first on this year’s Fall runway. Many different patterns, sheer dresses, and it seems as if lace camisoles have made their way back. The huge pendant, antique looking necklaces, along with the fur collars added to the ‘Peter Pan’ feel. Even the hair and makeup matched the look to a T. I’m absolutely in love with the tied up shorts that cinch up a bit, they looked great with those plaid shirt pieces. And that sheer, black lace gown was absolutely flawless. However, I wasn’t a fan of the baby doll dress looks, not even the sheer one (and you all know I love nakedness). It just looked like it would be too hard to transfer off the runway. Now fashion magazines wouldn’t have an issue with it, but I couldn’t see celebrities wearing these pieces on a red carpet. I also believe too much of a good thing can be a bad thing, speaking on all the ruffles, and YES I do understand it coincides with the look, but it’s just a bit much for me. Those wrap up shoes in the last part of the show however, I’m CONVINCED are from heaven. Overall, I think Christian Dior will be just fine without Galliano.
