NEW LOOK

Let me introduce a true Dior jewel. The work that went into this divine cocktail dress is absolutely mesmerizing. It’s only when I start messing around and by twirling and unfolding the skirt that one can see that the latter is a canvas on which the myriad tiny sequins draw innumerable patterns – see for yourselves on the pictures.

The belt took me aback at first: I was expecting silver instead of gold. However, once I’d slipped it on, I appreciated the contrast and the added touch of originality.

The ultimate detail, though? Pockets! Many New Look dresses in Mr. Dior’s time had large pockets that allowed women wearing them to slip a business card or a tube of lipstick in all discretion and look casual and effortless.
