gorgeous! What great style René has! You know, the interest in the gloves and the use of block color reminds me of the lithographs of Toulousse Lautrec, and of course the drawings and studies he did of Yvette Gilbert, in which the black gloves were like a trademark.

Ditto. I've been fascinated with his work since receiving a card with one of his illustrations on it.

http://www.somersethouse.org.uk/fashion/dior/

There's currently an exhibition of his work with Dior on in Somerset house, really looking forward to catching it sometime.
