Review and Pictures of Christian Dior 2012 Spring Summer Paris Fashion Week Runway Show

2012 Paris S/S Fashion Week: Christian Dior

Christian Dior will be announcing a new head designer soon, but in the meantime, John Galliano's former right-hand man Bill Gaytten, who has headed up Dior since Galliano's departure, sent out a polished, ladylike Spring 2012 collection that stayed true to the Dior woman. It was a collection that focused on getting dressed up, with cocktail dresses and gowns of chiffon, organza, and lace, intricately constructed in a perfectly-executed take on the Dior classics. There was no big, new theme; rather the collection was a lovely reminder of the brand's history and stylistic power.

  • Trends: Ladylike, boudoir, cocoon jackets, evening wear.
  • Colours: Seafoam green, red, black, white, blush.
  • Key Piece: The lace and chiffon boudoir-inspired gowns for the red carpet.
  • Accessories: Pouch bags, strappy stilettos.
  • Who Would Wear It: Ladies of the red carpet who want a truly feminine, classic look. We love the thought of Keira Knightley, Rose Huntington-Whiteley, and Emma Stone in the cocktail dresses.
