Most of you have probably read the bad reviews of this Christian Dior Haute Couture show, they were unavoidable. But I don't think they were completely justified. I'll agree that there was too much going on, but there were some beautiful pieces in the show and I think the negative reviews came...

Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2011-2012 ramp also saw its fair share of 50s poodle style skirts as well as pleated skirts. The collection had a lot of vibrant, neon as well as candy floss colors. The tulip-cut outfits in pop art print stood out for their well designed...
