  1. These are divine; especially the Kenzo orange and Poiret Marrakesh dress.
    Happy 2010, -h!!!

  2. That Dior. Good grief. AMAZING!

  3. Iman is so stunning.

    Etro was on an Istanbul/Joplin kick in 78. Check the pic I posted under Style Quiz 2.

    I'd like to see Galliano revisit his archives from the 90s.
