My first glance at this show made me feel like I had fallen down a rabbit hole into the storybook of Alice and Wonderland. It’s Maria Grazia Chiuri’s second season since she turned the house of Christian Dior on its heels into a whole new brand. In her first season as creative director of Dior, she made bold statement t-shirts that declared “We Should All Be Feminists.” She takes a step back from her edgy street-style look for couture week and creates elegant ballgowns that float down the garden runway.
This look is something I could see Alice herself wearing in the next Hollywood rendition of the tale. Beautiful depictions of nature are displayed on this dress that look like scenes from a child’s dreams. The dramatic feather headdress is hauntingly beautiful and gives this look an edge. The pockets on the sides are a perfect addition to this gown.
Last season, many designers were in favor of sheer from the waist down, but this look turns that trend upside down featuring a sheer top. The lavender and lace details are romantic and beautiful. The choker looks like a thorny branch wrapped around this models neck and I love how nature continues to be an important aspect of the show.
This is a dress I’m dying to wear. I have a feeling someday soon we’ll be seeing this on the red carpet because it is such a cool design. The reflecting fabric draws me in and makes me want to be the girl wearing it. The three gold feathers are an amazing finishing touch and pair very well with the emerald green.
