Diamonds and pearls lit up the Dior runway yesterday in a show that was dressed down from previous couture catwalk extravaganzas. Quite literally.
According to Style.com, designer John Galliano said he was inspired by behind-the-scenes documentary photographs taken more than half a century ago as Monsieur Dior dressed his cabine of mannequins for shows.
The conceit of half-dressed models informed the collection, with girdles, lace-edged slips and corsets making a strong showing along with structured jackets, draped bubble skirts, padded-hip coats, and full-skirted evening gowns in a colorful palette of orange, lime, raspberry, and yellow. But the blingy baubles were the highlight – with diamond bow necklaces and earrings, glittering diamond flower shapes and giant pearl statements in both black and white.
