Between this slideshow and yesterday’s pre-party — aka Part I — we got quite a concentrated peek at how Dior’s runway stylings might be adapted for the red carpet, and perhaps where the brand will be heading. There are still some grievous things, but I have hope that the new creative director is piloting the ship away from those and simply didn’t want to crank the wheel too hard for fear of capsizing.
