Eternal Style

My Sunday inspiration came in the form of Marie Claire Espana’s editorial, celebrating the astounding beauty of Dior’s Spring 2011 Couture collection.

The idea of ‘style’ – what it is, who has it and so on – is something that is eternally on my mind. Today there are few people who evoke true style. That unmistakable ‘je ne sais quoi’, familiar with classic icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and other timeless beauties.

Marie Claire Espana’s June 2011 editorial, featuring Melodie Dagault and Anastasiya Bondarenko, is beautiful, romantic and whimsically nostalgic. With the simple white backgrounds, all focus is placed purely on the exquisite gowns and models’ classic beauty. The old-world glamour of this alluring collection is further transfixed by the chic styling – the long gloves; striking red lips; perfectly shaped eyebrows; and elongated feminine silhouettes.

With the models’ appearing every part the impeccably polished belles, this Haute Couture collection is the epitome of classic style…

I would love to know, what do you think is the epitome of timeless style? xx


About the Dior Couture Collection
The Dior Spring 2011 Couture collection took inspiration from the elegance, beauty and radiance of René Gruau’s illustrations. As the Dior Illustrator, Gruau created a fresh ideal of female beauty and captured a new mood of post-war optimism. Gruau’s exquisite illustrations are perfectly reflected in this dynamic collection. The intensity of colour and bold lines, leave me speechless. To view the Dior Couture collection, please click here…
