I know things have been bad at the house of Dior this year but I don't think having Pierrot for inspiration is going to help turn things around.
Former longtime Galliano assistant Bill Gaytten was given the reins for Dior's first couture collection in 16 years without John and it was....disjointed at best.
I guess after 15 years of being second in command you get a lot of ideas that get pushed aside (or never even considered) that suddenly being in charge seems like such a miracle you want to realize all of those ideas all at once just in case its your only chance.
Besides the tragic clown Bohemia, the eighties, Cinderella, Frank Gehry, and disco all took turns down the catwalk. It would be hard to top Galliano's over the top couture spectacles and Gaytten would have been better off not trying.
Don't get me wrong there is some stunning craftsmanship and beautiful pieces here. It just wasn't the breath of fresh air or sophistication that Dior desperately needs now.
(Is that a tribal necklace? Why has it been paired with this frothy confection?!)

Elle Fanning is following in her big sister's footsteps once again! You may remember Dakota Fanning starring in Marc's ads back when she was just 12 and she's currently the face of Marc's Oh Lola perfume.
13-year-old Elle is posing for the more age appropriate Marc by Marc Jacobs line's fall campaign. Elle is already 5'7" and still growing so in the unlikely event that the whole acting thing doesn't continue to work out she'll always be able to fall back on modeling!
What do you think of Elle's first official foray into the fashion world?
Do you like it better than Hailee for Miu Miu?

I'm obsessed with Prada's youth and color infused campaign for Fall 2011.
Steven Miesel shot newcomers Ondria Hardin and Kelly Mittendorf (both American!) with Frida Gustavsson, Julia Zimmer and Antonia Wesseloh on jewel toned couches. The pretty, girlie result is Prada's best showcase of a collection in years.

Miu Miu is continuing their history of using young starlets in their ad campaigns but I actually approve of this one!
Hailee "Should-Be-Katniss-In-The-Hunger-Games-Movie" Steinfeld is the new face of Miu Miu! We only have this small preview of the campaign so far but I think she looks charming and age-appropriate.
(I'm lusting over that over-sized velvet clutch, too!)
What do you think of Hailee for Miu Miu?

Robyn has quickly replaced Crystal Renn as the plus-sized model of the moment.
As you probably know by now, Robyn was photographed by Steven Meisel for this month's cover of Vogue Italia. She was also on the cover of French Elle in April!
She's funny, articulate, and smart. I can't wait to see where her career goes from here!

I know I'm a few days late but I love Amanda Brooks Jill Sander gown so much that I had to share it with you all!
She was definitely my pick for best dressed of the night!
She looks so polished but edgy at the same time.
I love when gowns have pockets!
