The opulence of Charles James inspired John Galliano for his 2010 Spring Couture collection for the house of Dior. Enough has been said about John Galliano, regarding that infamous drunk rant back in 2012 his fate almost sealed with shame. Regardless of your feelings on the man, John Galliano has been one of the great fashion talents of the last 20 years elevating the house of Dior from 1996 producing collection which have been regularly critical triumphs, creating visual pleasures as well as great clothes. For his Spring Couture collection in 2010, Galliano was inspired by the opulence of Charles James so he created a show worthy of such an inspiration. 

The gown below comes from this collection. Though not quite vintage, it's is definitely an archival piece. The pink satin whipped into a ball gown with pleated train and dusted with crystals is the perfect gown to make any woman feel like Cinderella. And most importantly for those attending, a great option to wear to at this year's MET ball honoring Charles James, America's best couturier. 

As Galliano expressed to the press after the show, he had read that it was actually Charles James who inspired Christian Dior to create the New Look. So voilà, Charles James to Christian Dior via John Galliano in all his splendor.
