SPRING SUMMER 09 Christian Dior Haute Couture

The last few seasons at Christian Dior have been one disappointment after the other for me, i hated the 70s look last season and could not stand the bejewelled trapeze gowns which seem to only fit on the more 'curvacious woman'. So it is my greatest pleasure to say that the Christian Dior S/S09 Haute Couture collection is truly wonderful. The collection is consistent with the theme of parisian folds and pastel florals.
The shapes were tight on the waist, and volumptious around the legs. The colours were cream and pink, with a touch of pastel yellow. The models were decked in typical Galliano style, heavy 60s makeup and over the top hair. The front row included Carine Roitfeld and Mischa Barton, and most importantly the turn out was bigger and better than Chanel.
