Same old Dior Couture....but I can say I find this collection to be really beautiful and I do like it better than some of the past collections. I feel like this time his whole rehash of Dior's 'new look' actually works. I think every look is beautiful and I love the set as well.

exactly, I was about to say it. at least I could see some effort from him.
I used to like it more when John's glamour wasn't that classy. I know it's beautiful, but that's all, it's not shocking or groundbreaking (even though I find it hard to have something like that nowadays).

I'm over Dior. If Galliano can't try to create, I can't try to give a ****.

this is HAUTE COUTURE in its most literal sense of the word. I've always had the love and hate relationship with Galliano and his designs for Dior but this is pure amazingness!

i got excited when i saw the reds and thought there would be much more of it
anyway, the full skirt silhouette is amazing and it brought me back to what dior was really about at the beginning.
overall, it s nothing short of a real couture collection

I wasn't blown away, though I really liked some of last gowns specially the one Magdalena wore. I hated the red beginning though.

I was expecting to like at least ONE piece....not really liking any of it TBH.

Dior has kinda lost it's spark!

I found this show to be very generic, very much what we're used to seeing from Dior. Wish it was a little more edgy.

The three opening looks are exquisite, I love the reds and gradient tone. It's defiantly stronger than F/W 10.11, I wasn't blown away by that, but I am by this. One thing I'll give John, is that he carries on the Dior silhouette to perfection.

One of the better collections of recent times. Really like the colour tones and also details on the dresses/gowns.

On the one side this is a beautiful collection (I like especially the red outfits from the beginning of the show), but I think it's kinda what we already seen before (as many of you have pointed out here).

Stunning to look at but safe. Everyone knows Galliano can whip up divine creations but when will he break from either old Hollywood glam or rehashes of the original Christian. I adore you Galliano but growing weary. Still, it's absolutely stunning and breathtaking, damn you John you turn me into a cynical hypocrite.
