We're now entering the show season known as "resort," when European designers come to America to showcase their floaty dresses, bathing suits, and heels. It's a fun time, and usually a beautiful one, but last night's Dior Cruise show had a few snags. The show itself was luciously out of control - metallic jacquard print, beehave hairstyles, bejeweled Bollywood headbands, maribou feathers dusting the bottoms of babydoll tops. There were some Breakfast at Tiffany dresses that I would kill for, and the whole thing was like Beach Blanket Bazaar. All the girls wore knives disguised as shoes - tall, teetering pastel things that stabbed the ground with laser-like points instead of bottoms. Galliano also attached little balls to the ends for decoration, but those got in the way of actual walking, and three models took a tumble on the winding runway. "It looked painful," snapped an insider at the show, "and people were actually laughing as they left. What a Dior-saster!" Well, it wasn't all wrong - some of the clothes were cool, and it's a testament to the geniuses behind the scenes that although the girls fell, their hair didn't budge an inch.
