Christian Dior - Paris Spring 2010
(PARIS) Lauren Bacall, film noir...it's hard to go wrong. After a high-concept Fall collection, John Galliano went straight for the jugular with a stunning display on femme glamour that expounded on concepts like slip dressing and underwear-as-outerwear seen at his July couture show. It all began with a lamé trench, followed by a shorter khaki twill one, and belted double-breasted jackets with exaggerated hips and shoulders in shades of nude, then gray, then black. A micropleated black lace dress over a fuschia slip best embodied that sexiness, while a pale blue screen-goddess gown offered the kind of glamour that Marion Cotillard should reserve tout de suite.
