The Romantic Renegade: Christian Dior Fall 2011 RTW

I've always adored that royal blue color that was expertly used throughout the first part of the show. So rich. So lush. So nicely done. A great ending to the Galliano era.


Dior Addict lipstick presentation at the Hôtel Plaza Athéneé in Paris

Chiara Ferragni, creator of The Blonde Salad, takes us on a tour of the suite at the Plaza Athéneé for the presentation of the new Dior Addict lipstick collection.  Everything in the suite was set up to complete perfection, organized the same way as shown in the promo featuring Kate Moss. The promo can be seen HERE.

As Chiara states in the video, I would just love to live there for the rest of my life also: a gorgeous french boudoir with a view of the Eiffel Tower, fresh roses decorating each room, and a surplus amount of Dior clothes and accessories to keep me in a state of nirvana. Like I've said before, perfection.

Side note: You may notice the embroidered black silk taffeta dress that Chiara picks up for a second is familiar looking... That's because my girl Ri had it on when performing "Love the Way You Lie" with Eminem at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. The gown was debuted in CHRISTIAN DIOR'S FALL 2010 COUTURE collection.

Following, are some snapshots of the suite and presentation. J'adore Dior.

Color is making a bold move not only into spring, but fall too. Finally! After several years of being in an economic slump, designers and companies decided to go with dark and neurtal tones to follow the mood of the population. 

Although I wear a lot of neutrals, I always love switching it up. PROENZA SCHOULER'S FALL 2011 RTW show demonstrates the color wheel perfectly; with it's vivacious palette of dark reds, blues, yellows, and oranges. Black was still thrown into many of the outfits to make the details pop out even more. Of these colors, were rich textures and tribal-esque patterns that are just so pleasing to the eye! YUM.

The Suitcase

It would have been nice to have had these outfits and accessories in my trunk full of dress up clothes as a young girl. Instead I had to result to old ballet leotards, Beauty and the Beast ensembles, and cheap plastic jewelry from Pretty Pretty Princess. Damn.
