2006 Christian Dior by John Galliano Beaded Gunmetal Silk Bustier Dress
An absolutely stunning and highly coveted Christian Dior gunmetal grey beaded silk chiffon bias-cut bustier dress dating back to John Galliano's 2006 fall-winter 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 fabric itself is a masterpiece; semi-sheer gunmetal grey silk chiffon with sparkling silver-toned glass beadwork and sequins in the most beautiful deco floral motif. I love the optional strapless design with wonderful boned bustier structure built-in for the perfect shape. Closes with elegant side covered buttons. Such a nod to 1930's design. The side ruffle tiers give the garment such beautiful movement. This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. You will reach for this Dior anytime you want to look sensational. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
