Dress of the Day - July 30, 2011

Dress of the Day: Christian Dior, "Junon" dress (1949-1950). Dior's magnificent take on Juno, or Hera in Greek, the queen of the ancient Greek pantheon. Light blue silk with sequin embroidery in iridescent blue, green, and rust. More on this later. After an exciting concert and after party, I feel like a festive look and immediately thought of this breathtaking gown. It's amazing how often designers draw on classical Greece for inspiration, and also how the resulting creations take on many varied forms.
