Galliano does history one better, once again

Galliano's recent Dior show at l'Orangerie of Chateau Versailles in Gay Paree has been much anticipated (pre) and celebrated (post) over the last few weeks.

I think I can safely say that he is my absolute favourite living designer. He breathes his larger-than-life lifeforce into everything he does; he respects and venerates the perfections achieved by his predecessors, but always introduces something profoundly modern. He has the most luscious understanding of using colour in the medium of fabric. He's from another planet.

Here are some highlights from the big event at l'Orangerie. Note the stunning palette and the otherworldly fabrics and, of course, the hats! The wonderful, wonderful hats!

Long Live Galliano!
