First things first- Did John Galliano change is name to Monchichi Galliano because he looks straight up Monchichi. That hair! Kidding, how can I mock the genius known as John Galliano! He’s  done it again! Brilliant designs for Christian Dior’s Spring Couture  line with fabrics dyed to look like watercolors and cuts that are distinctly Dior. You can never fail with the classic 1950’s silhouette in my book. My favorite has to be the lemon-colored gown. Reminds me of that iconic Dior photo. I also love the dress in the 8th photo. So fluffy, so soft, so….  Mr. Marmar! Anywho, I think Dior takes the Haute Couture crown this season.

French designer Raphaelle H’limi uses fabrics to its fullest potential by experimenting with textures and folding. There’s that 3D trend again….  Those glasses are pretty hilarious. It’s like these frames I once made for my place with beads, rhinestones and anything that resembled candy. My favorite out of the bunch is the first photo- looks very Japanese. I bet I could recreate that with picnic napkins… maybe not. H’limi interned for Emilio Pucci and Christian Dior at one time. That’s pretty major. She’s definitely one to watch!

John Galliano decide to shower us with a bouquet of flowers including the plastic floral wrap. All he was missing was the powdered flower food that no one every uses [insert own drug joke here]. I like how Galliano ignores the “plastic can suffocate for his models. But that’s not important… Take a look at each dress. Each one is a specific species of fleur. My favorite is the black one and the blue/pink gown. Such beauty! As usual, Johnny struck one of his infamous poses at the end and he’s wearing a beekeeper’s hat/veil. So fitting! I can’t hate on a genius. Truly. Viva Dior!

The poufy hair, the skinny pants, the bows , the ruffles… THE PINK! Oh, Behave! I’ll take ten of each please, in case one is in the wash. John Galliano did it again! It’s like Paris meets Austin Powers on a delicate spring day! I used to wear my hair like that about ten years ago before Snookie and Bumpits. I used this plastic coil that looked like a rabid squirrel’s tail to achieve ‘the pouf’. I always had a suspicious eye out for a menacing squirrel whenever I passed by a tree whenever I rocked ‘the pouf’. Enough about me. Galliano must have been playing with his Barbies (you know he does) while watching Paris …When it Sizzles” …or he had a “Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea”?? I still love it!

Galliano has done it again! I love horses and horseback riding and stuff and this collection totally reflects on the old-timey times of horseback riding. Let me put it more eloquently and not like I’m smacking gum bubbles (it’s cherry flavored) while twirling my hair. Galliano delivers a classic clean collection with feminine frocks and horseback riding ensembles from the turn of the prior century and 1930s. So, yeah, I’d totally wear this. Anyway, I have been horseback riding several times in my life and I LOVE it. I do have to say the first time I went, I wore high heels (please don’t laugh). I didn’t know you can really hurt a horse with high heels. Let’s just say the horse owner was giving me the side-eye the whole time. Anyway, Galliano rules!

Horseback riding, Gibson girls, and vintage Charles James gowns gave John Galliano his inspiration for his couture show. I am a big fan of the horseback-riding look, all the way down to the riding crop.  I think it’s an elegant sport, and horses are just so majestic and gentle. So naturally, I loved this collection. If I had a horse, it would be a white Arabian stallion. I would put a pink rhinestoned, unicorn horn on it for special occasions, like my birthday. I would name the horse Mr. Moosh. Basically, it would be my cat,  Mr. Marmar as a horse. I’m way off track here, but yes, I do think things through. Galliano is officially on my ‘Never can do eff up’ list.

I came across this phenomenal photo shoot as I was perusing the internet. See what you can make from a bag? A damn outfit! That is genius! I used to collect shopping bags when I was a teenager and I used to tape it to my bedroom walls. Others taped up New Kids on the Block posters and I would tape up Moschino shopping bags. Others would hang Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam ( don’t hate! you know every word to ‘Lost in Emotion’) posters in their lockers, I would hang a poster of Linda Evangelista in Chanel. Anyway, this gives me an idea to round up all the homeless and see who makes the best dress out of shopping bags! Project Homeless I think I just gave Bravo an idea.
