Spike413: I beg to differ (assuming you are referring to Gisele in the qipao). Qipaos are made in such a way that they show off the curves of a body (notice that it's tight, very tight). Anyone with a good figure will look great in a qipao because it doesn't hide the curves of the body. Furthermore curves give a life to the shiny effect of the silk.

I love silk. Such a gorgeous fabric.

I must say, that's a very stunning qipao by Galliano. The top's very Chinese, the way it's cut, but the bottom of the dress is very Western (flaring out and folding into very elegant curves).

I love Galliano, especially for his audacious flair. He doesn't hesitate to shock or surprise and even takes pride in doing so. He's very flashy but very witty at it at the same time - this applies to most of his collections, at least - I'm not very satisfied with some of them, but everyone has their ups and downs, no?

Glad to help!

Corbis has a great selection of Galliano for Dior from his first show in 1997 all the way through to now, though there is much more detailed coverage from 1997-2001.

They aren't the full show lineups, but ever since firstview changed gears and eliminated the archives Corbis is the best and only game in town.

That's it! The infamous Pocahontas collection! Terribly reviewed, but, from what I've read, a personal favorite in the Dior Atelier!

Looking back through 90's fashion...most of it was very awkward...but as I've become more familiar with early Galliano and Galliano for Dior, it's become very clear the Galliano owned the 90's! His shows were so charming, so creative, so much fun!..and the models looked like they were having a blast...apparently, they all loved John to death and often did his earliest shows for free simply as a favor! How adorable! I would do anything so see some videos of these collections!

All this 90's fashion makes me remember Robert Altman's Pret-a-Porter! Wasn't his greatest movie, but I recorded it on TV a month or two ago and I've managed to catch all the runway footage and have watched them over and over again!

Yes I'm now again intrigued by the HC F/W 1999 since seeing the photos again after all these years. I dont care what people would think, I would wear one of those wolf hides.
