Christian Dior’s fashion show started as a film noir with a lot of smoke and the sound of screams and guns. The models had the look of a classic beauty: red lips, colorful eyeshadow and long wavy hair. The corsets seemed the key element of this collection. A lot of lingerie and some gorgeous nightgowns in orange, red, purple and pink came by. The gowns were made of shiny (often transparant)  fabrics and had sequins all over them. A real showstopper was a long ivory gown with a strapless corset. From the bottom down sequins diverged all over its fabric. An eye-catching black transparent dress had violets stitched on top of it. A lot of big bags were carried around. They looked more like briefcases and therefore contrasted with the nightwear. A very thick leather jacket with an airy dress didn’t make up for a dazzling outfit either. From all the jackets that were shown John Galliano probably wore the best one himself. His detective look was the perfect end of this film noir-inspired show. (Tess van Daelen)
