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.

Goodness Gracious! These gowns are to die for … Seriously, Marchesa needs to pack up and move to Paris because that is where they belong- amongst the incredible haute couture houses of our time. Let’s start with the stunning shoulder/neck jewelry on some of the dresses. I love love love the glitz and glamour it lends that only the 1930s did so well ( I also love jewelry built into a dress). Each gown’s hue is so delicate and reminiscent of an elegant ballerina ( we also saw that at Dennis Bosso– definitely the movie  Black Swan is in the air). I’m especially digging the nude and lace gown- some of these gowns remind me of Dior and John Galliano’s couture line over the past couple seasons and also Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture lines from several seasons ago. Identical silhouettes and soft, feminine fabrics- but always flattering on any woman.Anyone who brings on the glamour is A-ok in my book! Yay, Marchesa!!

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!

This looks looks like the porn version of The Sound of Music (or Sister Act, depending on your taste). Not that there’s anything wrong with that! Photographer Cedric Buchet shot this editorial for Paris Vogue featuring a nun with claws like a Guidette on MTV’s Jersey Shores. I’m totally guilty of having nails like that in a former lifetime. I took them off when I was classified as handicapped according to my brother. I couldn’t type or wipe my ass.  Anyway, this is why I LOVE Paris Vogue! One part effed-up, one part couture! That’s how I like my couture, by the way. Imagine this chick teaching you catechism. Hawt! And look- she’s wearing that voodoo skull of Dior in the fourth photo! So sinister. Nuns gone rogue!

When I first saw these, all I could think about was the Indiana Jones with the dude saying ‘Kalima’ while holding another dude’s heart in his hands. Yeah, watch it below and then come back. Charming… Anyway, this looks like what the ‘Kalima’ dude would totally kill for! So, these are precious jewelry by Dior’s Haute Couture Jewelry Collection. This isn’t your JCPenny sort of gems ( cubic zirconia- my FAVORITE!), but it’s more like platinum, diamonds, jade, pearls, etc. This is jewelry you wear when you want someone to kiss your hand…. and you’re a guy. Somehow, it’s not that feminine to me so I can’t picture a woman wearing this. But I do picture this guy rocking it and performing voodoo.

Of all the Vogues, French Vogue is my favorite. Why , you ask? Because only the French can come up with the most ‘WTF?’ photo shoots and make it look so damn chic! Click here for Exhibit A.  Exhibit B is above, because whilst the world is in an economic typhoon, someone at French Vogue thought it be funny to put up photos of jewelry on one person that is worth over 4.5 million EUROS. That’s like about  (to lazy to convert) 8 trillion american dollars, by the way, after inflation. Anyway, I do like this spread! FYI- I’m so insane about Vogue magazine that I used to collect every issue of American Vogue since August 1987. I stopped after a pile about 8 feet tall came crashing down on me on afternoon and almost killed Mr. Marmar! Eff that! Mr.Marmar was hissed off! He told me in cat speak ‘it’s either me or Vogue!’. And so, the Vogue magazines were dismembered and disposed of. Mr. Marmar made me do it!
