Vintage Barbie


I am going gaga over the Dior Fall 09 Couture collection. It looks like a colorful combination of vintage Barbies, extras in the Audrey Hepburn movie, Funny Face, and those old fashion showrooms and shows from the 50's where the catwalk would be surrounded by flowers and couches to make the buyer seem more comfortable and elegant. Though nothing about these outfits look comfortable, they sort of take you to another place, you know? - a world full of glamour, red lipstick, and those really ridiculously long cigarettes.

Those outfits really are so glamorous. And the hats are beyond cool.
Vintage dresses have a unique style to them, that you can't get these days.

Dior is always so OTT fun. These definitely remind me of those snooty women in the beginning of Funny Face that treat Audrey like dirt...
