2003 Christian Dior by John Galliano Ruby Red Silk Bias-Cut Ruffle Gown
An incredibly chic and ultra flattering Christian Dior ruby red bias-cut gown from John Galliano's stunning 2003 spring-summer collection. John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. He mingled his references in often surprising juxtapositions to create extravagant yet intricately engineered and meticulously tailored clothes. This dress is everything you look for in Galliano era Dior. The fabrics used are glorious. Luxurious mid-weight silk with semi-sheer chiffon ruffle trim and a peak of lace, all in the most perfect ruby red hue. The thin-strap asymmetric bodice and side covered buttons are really lovely details. Such a nod to 1930's fashion as well! The flattering bias-cut shape flows into a stunning side slit. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of gown you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
