Just when you think you can't hold out until the shows this September, along comes haute couture fashion weeks in the warm summer season, bigger and bolder than ever. Whether it be Berlin or Paris, unlike their American counterparts, these haute couture shows aren't scared of a little chiffon and a lot of feathers, a puff-sleeved or two, and hats and bows so big you barely need the clothes to go with them. And who does this better than the master costumier couturier himself, John Galliano for Christian Dior? He brought out some very important names in European pop culture and entertaiment, like Dasha Zhukova, Estelle Lefebure, Nora Arnezeder, Claire Chazal and of course, LVMH tycoon Bernard Arnault. The show even brought American "princess" Tinsley Mortimer all the way from NYC. Looks like there were plenty of pink get-ups to keep her happy well into fall.
