There is a fantastic new Ballgown Exhibition opening at the Victoria & Albert Museum this evening (It is open to the public from 19th May right through til January 2013).
Ballgowns are just the ultimate fantasy dress for woman. Let's be honest, not many of us are ever going to have the need for more than one (and that is if we are very lucky)! They always makes me think of Audrey Hepburn, or Cinderella and I always think of Dior for the ultimate couture gown. The glamour of the super tiny waist and the silk skirts - gorgeous!
They also remind me of the movie Mrs 'Arris goes to Paris with Angela Lansbury. Oh, I LOVE this film sooo much!! It is about a cleaning lady in London's East End who saves ALL of her money to buy a Couture Dior Gown. Please tell me you have seen it !!!!
I adored the idea that Natalie Portman wore a vintage (numbered) Dior dress from the 1954 Spring Couture Collection to the 2012 Oscars.
It was sold after she wore it for a whopping $50,000 !!!
Here are a few pictures from the Exhibition to keep you going. I am definitely going to take my girls to see it x
