John Galliano PFW Runway
We all want to know what or who inspired John Galliano‘s show at the Opera Comique. Birds are telling me that it was con artist extraordinaire Maria Lani from the Twenties who convinced (ahem, scammed) over fifty leading artists of the day (including Matisse) to paint her portrait and then would flee with the paintings in tow. In this tribute all models were styled differently, each with a theatrical performance walk of their own. Like cotton candy with a Japanese taste, the British designer put on a real experience. Coco Rocha in tight pigtails for your time, below. View Post

Christian Dior Runway PFW Melissa Tammerijn
I despise Hawaiian prints, Captain John Galliano. That said, there is nothing I wouldn’t wear in this Christian Dior collection. The only stipulation – starting with the pinup redundancy – is the fact that it looks like a resort collection and I expected something with more theatrical for Spring/Summer 2011. At least we’re now all Dior-ready to channel Dita von Teese on vacation. View Post
