Dior Exhibit: From Paris to the World

Dior gowns, Dior fashion, haute couture

A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to attend a Dior Exhibit currently on display at the Denver Art Museum. As the museum’s website describes, Dior: From Paris to the World showcases 70 years of the Dior fashion house, providing the history behind its founder Christian Dior and his successors, displaying more than 200 couture dresses (as well as photographs, sketches, videos, and accessories), and explaining the muses behind each collection.

Happy Christmas Eve to all of you who are celebrating! I can’t believe tomorrow is already the big day, but I wanted to share one final festive red and green outfit for any last-minute Christmas soiree you may be attending (but no worries if you need some excuses to dress up). While this outfit sings of elegance and old-fashioned style, the poofy tulle lining of the skirt holds a dirty little secret…It’s actually an old Christmas dress!
