Just wanted to share what is, quite possibly, my favorite Christian Dior Haute Couture collection. This is Spring 2006 inspired by the violence of the French Revolution.
I love practically everything about this collection. The corseting, the asymmetrical skirts, the volume, even the blood.
I particularly like how some of the makeup makes the models look like wax death masks a la Madame Tussaud. If you do a google search for Marie Antoinette's death mask, it'll pop up, as well as Louis XIV's.
I suppose I only wish the shoes were stronger.... and that I could afford it (I suppose that's a given).
I say this everytime, but it doesn't hurt to say it again.. Click the pictures. They blow up approximately 3 X bigger.
