The Christian Dior Fall 2010 show started off with a bang--well, really the neigh of a horse--as model Karlie Kloss sauntered down the catwalk in a large leather cape and a feminine chiffon dress.
The rest of the models, like Kloss, epitomized John Galliano's vision for next fall, which seemed to be a mix between horse-back riding and a romantic rendevous (a theme that has been common throughout the designer's previous few collections). That is, the Christian Dior Fall 2010 collection mixed equestrian-themed jackets, jodhpurs and caps, coupled with semi-sheer lingerie-style fabric, airy blouses and flirty ruffled skirts. The head wear of the day? Large top hats akin to that of the Mad Hatter.
