It’s fascinating synergy to me that Jennifer Aniston just wore to the SAGs a vintage 1999 Dior from her own closet, and the next day, Dior sent a couple pieces down the runway that echoed it. A womb-shaped runway, by the way, which was meant as part of Maria Grazia Chiurri’s amplification of feminism (which included a card at the end of the show that said, ‘What If Women Ruled The World?’). But I did enjoy this little mic-drop at the end of the Vogue review:
We would certainly do it all differently, that’s for sure. When it comes to the province of women’s fashion, more radical thinking needs to be done; ironically, menswear is opening up the parameters for expressing identity more quickly at the moment. It would be amazing to see Chiuri freeing herself further to break the boundaries of convention. The ritual of using young, same-sized models is one. What if haute couture was really demonstrated as a celebration of women of all ages, shapes, and cultures? That would be modern goddess-power incarnate.
