Christian Dior Couture, SS 2011


This dress is luscious.  I shouldn't be so frowny in the drawing.  Before Galliano was caught with a potty mouth it looks like he was looking back at classic Dior. 

On an art history note, the color scheme of this dress reminds me of Georgia O'Keefe's "Sky Above Clouds IV". 1965.  She was inspired to make the piece after being in a plane and looking at the clouds below her.  I have to agree, I always enjoyed seeing the clouds from that perspective.

I found this picture I took a long time ago on my way to Florida for my Opa's funeral.  Who knew I was channeling O'Keefe.  pale orange/pink and light blue what a color combo!
