About

Christian Dior is probably the best known name in high fashion since the late 1940's. This breathtaking garment from John Galliano's iconic 2003 collection is a perfect example of why this couture house has stood the test of time. Made of ruby-red silk chiffon; it has a seductive vibe that takes the concept of an evening gown to new levels. The hourglass silhouette is designed to flatter the figure at every angle. I love the avant-garde kimono sleeves that are hand embellished with sparkling beadwork and sequins in a unique floral motif. The semi-sheer mermaid flounce skirting finishes this dress off with an alluring femme fatale vibe. "A dress is a piece of ephemeral architecture, designed to enhance the proportions of the female body." Christian Dior
