  1. I think Galliano is a true master of couture and on a different note, Daphne looks stunning in this makeup.

  2. Its grand, glamorous, over-the-top – everything Dior and Galliano stand for.

    Some of the boxy shapes are a bit questionable, but Couture is not really supposed to be practical anyways. I love the hair and makeup, very Classic Hollywood Sirens like…Color palette is quite beautiful….I mean…its Dior :))

  4. galliano has been using the same silhouettes and materials in the same combinations for practically ten couture seasons. only the colour palette changes once in a while; here, the first few red looks to open were so extremely promising, but then it turned into the same old, same old cutesy pastel stuff. (see, the requisite leopard print also makes its appearance again.) perhaps a million variations on new look is what sells well for dior couture. actually, that sounds pretty plausible.

    for all that, the collection is beautiful. nothing ground-breaking from galliano, but at least he does what he does well. as a fan, i just miss his insane, almost hysterical couture from his first shot in 1997 to the early 2000s. ah well.

    • I will agree with you that he sticks to the same idea most of time…with different theme. I did like Spring 2010 show, with equestrian pieces & tophats…

      He’s just good at what he does. His clothes are for editorials. Nobody really wears them out to events…atleast not like Elie Saab, Chanel or even Givenchy…

      I do hope one day he steps out of his comfort zone and creates something truly Extraordinary!

  8. I do agree, that although the collection is very beautifully made and everything is gorgeous, it is very much the same of what we see in each season. The silhouettes and the textures and styling are VERY similar to what we’ve seen before. Granted, it’s still a BEAUTIFUL collection.

    And I’m kind of disappointed that Vlada didn’t walk this season :/

  9. Its all the same old thing. I cant tell what is new with Dior. Nothing!

  10. Its all the same old thing. I cant tell what is new with Dior. Nothing!

  11. Its all the same old thing. I cant tell what is new with Dior. Nothing!

    the collection is not very economic.
    it will not sell and in this economic crisis, designers should not plunge into such grandeurs.
    the looks are too glamorous and first-lady-like

    he should have went for a cut that is edgier and sexier
    and that flatters a woman’s body.
