Raf Simons for Christian Dior

Raf Simons made his debut collection for Dior this month and rightfully received rave reviews. He took Dior right back to the 50s elegance and simplicity which is at the essence of the label. I love the way he stayed true to the original ethos of Dior as a Franch fashion house whilst steering completely away from the avant-garde style of his disgraced predecessor John Galliano. The collection used strapless bodices and simple silhouettes all reminiscent of 1950s cocktail attire and evening dresses. He used comtemporary accents such as gilt collars and cuffs and minimalist cuts as well as cute peplums to bring the collection up to date. Hair was loose, straight and centre parted so as not to distact from the clothes, and make up featured zingy lime mascara and a scarlett pout. This romantic and sophisticated lady like line is made for the season 2 Betty Draper of 2012.
