Wallis Simpson inspires Dior pre-fall

My fascination with Wallis Simpson is pretty well-documented – I think Madonna is probably slightly more in to her than me, but only just. Evidently John Gallian has a fascination with the black sheep of the royal family too, and his pre-fall 2011 collection for Dior is totally inspired by her. OMG!

SWOON. The collection is something of a romp through the Duchess of Windor’s history; from a tartan gown suitable for the Highland Fling depicted in The King’s Speech to drop-waisted ball gowns via car coats and furry waxed jackets.

It’s collections like this that make me think I could sit through W.E. quite happily.

See it all here!

PS Maria Kashleva is a dead ringer for Wallis – well, a good looking Wallis.
