Embrace the Fantasy Of Christmas With Dior Grand Bal Collection

In a swirl of shadows and light, the Dior heroine leads the ball dance. She wears her glamour like a second skin. For the Christmas 2012 makeup collection, Tyen reinterprets the spirit of Dior grand balls with a contemporary elegance and a cheeky twist. They were a constant theme beating at the heart of monsieur Dior’s fashion and life. From the extravagant parties in Granville, his childhood home, which gave him a glimpse of his destiny in couture, to the Follies of the Parisian balls in the roaring 20s, the couturier was profoundly fascinated by transformation. From the catwalk to the red carpet, his ball gowns have become every woman’s desire. An 18th-century look, revived and modernised. Fleeting and flamboyant, the grand bal embraces the Fantasy of Christmas.

I was at Sasa the other day to hunt for a pair for my glitzy evening, and I settled with something called Dolly Wink.
