Visions of Tulle and Petals at Dior

Nothing like poppies to add some light and ephemeral wistfulness to January!
Dior Haute Couture has also stolen my heart with their flounces of silk tulle and Irving Penn silhouettes sashaying down the runways in Paris this week! If she wasn't pregnant I'd definitely put money on the "Swan" of the moment donning one of these to retrieve what surely will be her Oscar next month. Ah... fashion and Hollywood I want to hate them both and do on many levels but occasionally magic surfaces from the material and cinematic worlds. In these intersecting instances The House of Dior and our own little princess Natalie have succeeded. Bravo! Who could foresee where the two would miserably part!

And more pastel Dior runway visions paired with Hydrangea, Ranunculus, Thistle, Queen Anne's Lace, veronica and Astrantia.
