Btw Kasia's outfit is my favorite. It brings back fond memories of the wonderful Fall 1997 couture colletion.

Aha, thanks!

Does anyone have the full collection ready to be posted by any chance?

What did the 120 women who are couture regulars make of the show? They may be happy to learn that the outfits will be offered with regular silk-lined skirts and jackets because John Galliano’s seductive collection was based on the fantasy of transparency: clothes so light that black stockings, garters and bared flesh made a shadowy appearance under a pleated orange skirt, and a curvy tailored jacket in bold fuchsia was worn over nothing but seamed stockings and silken panties. To garnish the succulent fashion menu, a corset might be molded on the outside of an outfit.

It was all a riff on the glory days of Christian Dior, when a glimpse of stocking was something shocking and it incorporated the very Parisian lust for luxurious underpinnings as a male and female fantasy.

“I call it ‘cabine’ fever!” said Mr. Galliano, referring to the backstage frenzy in a series of 1950s photographs of the Dior dressing rooms that showed the models in girdles and bras dressing for the shows.

There was no new direction here, for we have seen this inside/outside world before from the designer. But never has the delicacy seemed more delicious than as a close up and personal vision of pink flower embroideries on a white skirt worn with a nude-colored bra top. All the work of the Paris embroiderers was exquisite in its artistry and subtlety.

But this world of shifting chiffon and layered lace, not to mention shoes decorated with jeweled garters, also had a vibrant side. As if giving a second, hyper-colorful life to the pen-and-ink sketches of the illustrator René Gruau, Mr. Galliano made the classic Dior rounded jackets in vivid shades or in a zebra pattern of black and white.

“I loved the outside underwear and the black and flesh colors together,” said the petite actress Marion Cotillard, who was perched on Dior platform shoes so high she was on a level with Mr. Arnault.

The collection was Dior with attitude, in the sweeping hats, the winged eyeliner and in the posing of the models. But at its heart were conventional Dior clothes of the kind that Carla Sarkozy, the wife of the French president, wears so demurely. Yet this time, instead of imagining what lies beneath a prim exterior, the fantasy of undress was on general view as a sly celebration of haute couture.

I really love this! My favorite looks are the one where the idea of transparencey was used to the full effect. Love it! A great start to couture week. I just want to see the full collection, maybe it's up on vouge.fr?

The best piece is the third from last dress where the clips hold up the dress.
That's the only piece that looks like it's had some imagination put into it.

Is is beautiful, love the vintage vibe, I don't care if it"s redundant he does it so well. Can't wait to see what US Vogue will do with the new look type clothing. And can't wait to see the undergarments in VP their so sexy!
