Venus – Dress Crown Friday

This weeks Dress Crown Friday features Christian Dior’s ‘Venus’ dress. Its from the 50’s (which we all know pretty much gives it the instant thumbs up). Dior designed it after WWII, wanting to restore finery and fantasy into the industry, presumably after the cut backs of almost everything. He certainly did that, this dress has everything in tow – sequins, pearls, rhinestones…

Despite its obvious overlavishness, I love the references to Greek goddesses.. maybe something to incorpirate into later posts?

Anyway, its gorgeous, and I will go into my day thinking too of the idyllic, and try and be the best version of Venus by my own definition …
