RECREATING DIOR

When I first laid eyes on these stunning images I followed the links leading me to the work of photographer Bryan John Hendon. A master of composition, his specialty is his incredible use of both artificial and natural light. Here with his favorite muse and model, Loren Juliet Paige, they have created real fashion poetry showcasing these gorgeous vintage gowns from Divine Elegance .  When I ran this post last year under the title, Legacies in Tulle it got off-the-charts reactions.  Now, with a few more images added to the series, and gala season a few weeks off, I'm reminding everyone this is what recreating Dior's 'New Look' is all about: Elegance at its finest . . .What's your interpretation of Dior's legacy for the 21st Century?

STUNNING! It reminds me of a mix between the movie Shag and Mad Men. Do you know that movie?

It's amazing how Dior's influence can still be felt after this many decades. Today's designers can only hope to be so inspirational for future generations.
