Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week kicked off today and John Galliano for Christian Dior was amongst the first designers to present his Haute Couture collection for Spring 2011. It's a strong collection, inspired by illustrator Rene Gruau, with voluminous dresses, cinched waists and bold colours as well as soft pastel tones. I especially adore the second look I posted, as the colours are stunning and suit the model's pale skin so beautifully. This collection wasn't really anything new, but it's exactly what you would expect from Dior at its best - and after a few disappointing Dior collections I can honestly say I LOVE this one :) And don't these looks above just SCREAM Springtime?
You can view the entire collection HERE and check out this video of the show:
