I loved the choices of gowns the celebrities chose for the 2012 Golden Globes. Plenty of pale pinks, champagne golds, and royal purples to suit my ladylike inclinations… and there was no small shortage of Marchesa and Christian Dior gowns. The one qualm I have lies in deciding if my favorite is Charlize Theron’s Christian Dior gown or Elle MacPherson’s Zac Posen gown. Decisions, decisions…. What were your favorites?

After what seems like years of either androgynous or bohemian-inspired looks ruling la monde du mode, it seems as though ladylike elegance is packing a strong punch for Spring 2012. This is particularly exemplified in Christian Dior’s Spring 2012 RTW Collection, which seemed to go back to its classic origins (doubtless in part due to the Galliano controversy earlier this year.) Regardless, I have always been a huge fan of Dior’s ability to create classy and timeless pieces that incorporate modern elements in shape and construction (cases in point: the leather skirts, and sheer blouses.) And it certainly doesn’t hurt that wearing Christian Dior feels like stepping closer to channelling Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco…. Enjoy!
How have I not seen the video for Christian Dior’s 2012 Cruise Collection yet!? It almost makes me wish I could time travel back to Summer. Almost. The model, the scenery, the clothes are impeccable.
