The Sun King...and the painted old Queen

I’d told myself I wasn’t going to write about the Dior haute couture show at Versailles. It was a dream location but I’m not a Dior fan and I was working on the premise of "if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all”. Then I saw the pictures and silence was no longer an option. I’m not going to touch on the clothes because to me they were typical Galliano; to be considered as art, perhaps, but not to be thought of as actual clothing.

No, it was the make-up that really caught my eye (if you’ll pardon the expression) because, with all that powder and paint, even the models didn’t look good. I don’t mean that is in the eye of the beholder and all that jazz...I mean that every line, wrinkle, blemish, etc was magnified by the caked-on layers of spackle. It was like watching a parade of very old drag queens.

All in all, I found it depressing. It would have been incredible to see the 80's supermodels and the younger counterparts on the same catwalk looking beautiful, regardless of age...sadly that didn't happen.

    Oh my god! What have they done to the beautiful Amber??
    I have to say, I did a photoshoot once and the makeup artist piled on all this makeup on me and I swear to god she gave me wrinkles I didn't even have!!! I mean, iridescent powder on someone with oily skin!!? Hello! I looked liked you could fry eggs on my face. Too terrible.
