The new look: 60 years later

July 2, 2007 Paris: The typically outlandish Galliano shocked everyone with his spring 2008 collection he premiered at Versailles. The show was a stunning display of Galliano's talent with structure, fabric printing and giving us the awe-factor performance.

Besides the homage to Christian Dior's post World War II new look, Galliano also paid tribute to Versailles- and Ms. Antoinette. His palette existed from some of the greats of impressionism. It is fantastic to see such delicate design from Dior, as the years previous have been hard edged and lacking demure lines.

Haute Couture shows generally celebrate the masters of the fashion world- showcasing amazing fetes of design and theatre combined. And this year was no different. For all forty seven looks from the show- click here
