Paint me Beautiful!

Happy Monday! For your viewing pleasure I bring you the divine new haute couture collection by John Galliano for Christian Dior. Inspired by the illustrations of my favorite French fashion illustrator, RenĂ© Gruau, the elaborate creations have a distinctly painterly feel.  Indeed some even have almost feather-like brushstrokes and pencil lines picked out in sequins. Even the hats are trompe l'oeil strokes of paint, soaring heavenward.  I think I'd feel like the most beautiful woman on earth in one of these ravishing frocks!
