FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: Belle Epoque Romance with Faux Victorian Innocence from John Galliano. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
While the romantic Belle Epoque- & Paul Poiret-inspired silhouettes and touches like a grown woman clutching a doll imply a certain innocence, the slatternly makeup & hair convey an entirely different, more interesting story behind closed doors. Stripped of the theatrical styling & presentation, these gorgeous dresses, coats & ensembles are dramatic but wearable in real life.
