Galliano Knows Best!

It's on Day 2 of Paris shows but I must say GALLIANO served! JOHN GALLIANO has a long history of exploring different eras when designing his collections for Christian Dior; & this season was no exception - The inspiration was the late Fifties (when women were women honey!). Models with big hair waltzed down the runway to the iconic song Mrs Robinson from The Graduate for a show of geometric shapes, electric colours mixed with monochrome and bright prints. I LIVE for big hair & full on dramatic eyes (think Valley of the Dolls, Stepford Wives & the GREAT Jacqueline Susann) the collection tickled my fancy!

The models worked the runway with dramatic hair & eyes
BIG HAIR Ruled the runway at the Christian Dior Autumn/Winter 2008-9 Show - I love the make up - LOVE!

BIG geometric patterns, big eyes and even bigger hair were the order of the day at John Galliano's autumn/winter 2008-9 show for Christian Dior.

The models' gigantic hair worked perfectly with the lady-like suits Those at the show were transported back to Sixties America where ladylike houndstooth-checked suits with bell-sleeves met hot pink, purple and lime green silk dresses in A-line psychedelic prints. Wearable, bright & boxy suits had matching bags and short gloves while the models' gigantic hair and earrings kept the look fresh.
Some of the more luxurious looks were the mink and chinchilla furs, with oversized buttons, cut in A-line shapes, sparkly beads on vibrant evening dresses and shiny snakeskin suits that will translate into many a Jackie-O wannabe's wardrobe next season.
The colors where bright, bold & beautiful!

Accessories played a bit part in the collections- hats were worn low with a slight masculine appear .. .GAILLIANO really outdone himself!
Geometric patterns and beading were seen throughout the collection
Beautiful jewel-toned frocks paired with all the accoutrement's made this collection stellar

the hair and makeup reminds me of an old film with a bunch of freaks, "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls." They did a throwback-its still cute though.

Merely team it down that has a set of two formal trousers and a blazer and you are therefore ready to get a company meeting or perhaps team up with a good two of denims or a funky trouser along with a leather jacket and you are also wanting to hit the party. Classic ralph lauren outlet polo t-shirts has to be pleasure to own as is also trendy, makes any one stand out which enables it to be worn anyplace.
