DiOr CoooouTurtaLLY! LoLzerZ!

Our petits mains have been hard at work bringing you trunkloads of fine haute couture from the venerated house of Christian Dior! The first two pieces are sexy black evening dresses from the era of Marc Bohan in the 1980s. The third is from Gianfranco Ferre, a Lucile Ball-style dress with graceful long sleeves, an exquisite crinoline skirt, and gorgeous satin cuffs and oversize buttons. The last piece isn't haute couture, but it is a creation for Saks Fifth Avenue from Christian Dior's heyday in the 1950s. We belted it with a chic red belt from the designer who would be Mr. Dior's successor--Yves Saint Laurent.
