'Christian Dior Spring / Summer 2010 Women\'sReady-To-Wear Collection by John Galliano. The theme was 1940s \'film noir\' with models made-up to look like like Lauren Bacall, sporting wavy Veronica Lake hair and striking red lips. The kind of strong-shouldered woman, who can hold her own while looking incredibly chic. Disrobing was the big story at Dior, as Galliano replaced traditional suits with unconventional pairings, including French lace-trimmed knickers and satin teddies signaling the return of sex or as designer John Galliano termed it, the new \"semi-undressed allure\". For day, pewter lamé and buff leather trench-style curvy jackets were belted over satin shorts, flirty slips and tight jeans. Off-the-shoulder jackets featuring a bow on each collarbone, and cropped trench styles including a short cotton version with a horseshoe neckline worn with pewter leather jeans kept the look modern and contemporary. Corsetry was key for evening -- a theme Galliano introduced in his autumn/winter, haute couture show for Christian Dior. By night, the glamour was oh so seductive as Galliano put his heroine into a pale pink corset and a long draped mint green skirt that radiated with sequins. The overt transparencies such as a purple satin bra-and-knicker set, seen through sheer black chiffon overlay were an illusion created by paneled layers, so that the undergarments can be slipped on all at once. The black banded tops of stockings seen through sheer panels in a copper lamé dress, and bra and panties glimpsed under a semitransparent tiered blue gown, were actually shadows stitched onto under slips. Backstage, Galliano revealed the secret: all the underwear was actually built-in, making getting dressed a one-step operation. The collection captured the romantic essence of his Dior couture and offered accessible interpretations of the fabulous lingerie-based couture collection. A clever and alluring combination.
