For Christian Dior’s Fall 2009 Couture show, head designer John Galliano delved into the archives of Dior, emerging with a handcrafted collection of wasp silhouettes bringing to mind timeless style icons as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

With clear emphasis on a waspish figure, Galliano tailored together a myriad of brilliantly colored petticoats, corsets and basques providing a cinched in waist accompanied by padded hips. Paired with transparent skirts, risque unmentionables and fierce hats, Galliano has something for everyone.
