With movie stars getting ready for Sunday's Oscars, front rows in Paris are beginning to boast fewer celebrities. Indeed, Anna Wintour, who attended Dior this morning, but not Lanvin later, is thought to have left Paris already for the Oscars. Instead of entertainers, French finance minister Christine Lagarde and industry minister Christian Estrosi sat front-row at Dior along with Dior spokeswoman Charlize Theron. Japanese Vogue's Anna Dello Russo, meanwhile, sat on the floor for unknown reasons.
John Galliano's fall 2010 collection was an evolution of his spring 2010 ridingwear-inspired couture collection. Today's show was inspired by the second earl of Rochester, whom Johnny Depp played in the 2004 film The Libertine, and his many mistresses. Again, Galliano put girls on the runway in long see-through dresses and other lingerie-inspired looks that many designers have given up this season.
Hilary Alexander notes that the hats looked more like Mad Hatter hats than anything, and swooned over Galliano's "fantastical parade of romance and retro" as well as his "most covetable frock-coats since Beau Brummell."
The designer took his bow dressed as Rochester, in a poet's shirt, suede jodhpurs, and riding boots with silver spurs. After the show he posed for a photo with Lindsay Lohan, whom he appears to have dressed in a girlier outfit than she usually wears. She must be missing the Oscars to put the final touches on her Ungaro collection, which walks Monday. So. Get excited.
