Dreams of Dior

Annalee Balut of ALB Dream Fashion knows nearly every fashionista dreams of wearing a Dior gown or two or three and so has made stunning reproductions of some of Dior’s marvelous spring 2009 couture collection where Dior indulged in the purest romaniticism possible, creating dresses for a modern Trianon. In real life, fashion design is a symbiosis of current and historical trends with imagination and creativity. SL designers are also influenced by RL design and sometimes reproduce or reinterpret particularly iconic RL designs.  You can see recreations of stunning wedding gowns and red carpert Oscar gowns around the grid. Some find this controversial, but I feel that so long as designers openly name their inspiration so said RL designer could easily discover the homage/reproduction and don’t try to hide anything, that it more a tribute to the RL designer than anything else.

Hot pink shoes from R2 with bright gold piping and gold heels are bold enough to complement the bright shocks of pink and orange in the skirt.

The bright Tulip makeup from Curio’s April line is a perfect match to the dress and adding the deconstructed updo from Damselfly balances the poufy construction of the skirt. The Bouquet ring is a lovely counterpoint to the intricate bodice.
