The best thing about a John Galliano show, whether it's Dior or Galliano, is the epic bow he takes at the end.
Yesterday, the Tuileries tent went black, strobe lights mimicked lightning, stormy music and the sound of horses played over the loudspeaker and when the lights came up Galliano was leaning against a faux pillar, his shadow projected on the wall, until he finally turned and walked down the runway.
What else happened?
Pre-show, photographers bombarded Charlize Theron, Anna Dello Russo ended up sitting on the floor and Anna plopped into her seat with seconds to spare.
The clothes were very pretty, but less than groundbreaking. (The thing is, while they were very Dior, they were also very Galliano and for a minute I forgot which collection I was watching. That, and I'm pretty sure Galliano's designed these sheer dresses before.) Karlie's walk was most distracting and the poufy hair was brilliant.
And If I can't have a gremlin, I'll take Dior's pink marabou bag instead.
