Christian Dior Couture Spring 2011

The only words to describe the Dior couture show this week are the big adjectives. Amazing, stunning. It was those and more. I  was wowed with just a glimpse.

The quality of light in the fabrics at time reminded me of a painting. The exquisite detailing, the big sashying skirts.  The headpieces by Stephen Jones.

The makeup  was fabulous as well. Porcelain doll faces, absolute precise lines.  Over the top ,but this is couture. Pat McGrath worked her usual magic using Dior Ara Red #999 for those lips. I loved the bold eye colors , but they were not Dior, so no details.

 I can only hope that at least one Oscar attendee dons one of these gowns for us to see. Since Natalie Portman is the face of Miss Dior Cherie, we'll see.
