Fug File: Dior

High Fugshion: Christian Dior Cruise Collection, Spring/Summer 2017


I can’t remember the last time I said this, but I actually really like this Dior collection. I don’t think any of it will really work on Jennifer Lawrence, but if she doesn’t care, why should I?

Additionally, this show was held at Blenheim Palace, which is stunning – to my great personal distress, I have still never visited in person — and which was the site of two historic Dior shows of the 50s; this article about them from The Telegraph yesterday is excellent and well worth a read. To the runway!

Haute Couture Week Fugs and Fabs: Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2016


This was an odd one: Raf Simons resigned unexpectedly in October, and so two anonymous atelier employees took the bow at the end after shepherding this to its conclusion. So while they can’t be blamed for the designs, I am certain they did yeoman’s work in finishing the construction and putting a polished product on the runway, and that deserves a fat bonus from the House. And, despite the first picture up there, this show wasn’t a COMPLETE festival of woe. Just PARTIALLY.

Some of this is actually really cute, in a way where I’m excited to see if Jennifer Lawrence has the good sense to grab it, and then some of it is a random grab bag of awful. Strap in and let’s do this thing. These are selects; click here for the full collection on Style.com.

High Fugshion: Christian Dior Couture 2014


I think Dior might be LISTENING, y’all. Because a few of these are actually TOTALLY REASONABLE, at least in (runway) theory. And then some of them remain awful, but hey, progress. As ever, for the full show, click here.

Couture Week Fugs and Fabs: Christian Dior


Jennifer Lawrence said at the SAGs that she and Dior are working on something vintage for the Oscars. So, safe bet that she won’t show up in anything hot off these presses, but let’s shop for her anyway. Or Marion, or Natalie, or Nicole, or any of the other Dior hounds. Assuming there’s anything worth snagging. It’s a fairly limited palette, with some dreamy ideas and some batshit ones. DIVE IN WITH ME.

Well, we’re back to Dior. My comment about the runway look was “I think there’s a vaccine for that.” Jennifer should’ve taken it.
