Christian Dior Spring 2014 Review: 
Totally Honest (but not so nice). 

While I was doing this Christian Dior Spring 2014 Review, I realized that the newest designer at Christian Dior, Raf Simons does have some youthful and edgy designs this season.



I have to admit that I really miss John Galliano and his dramatic Haute Couture designs!  


While there were some fresh yet classic gowns this Spring, there were many that just appear unflattering, and in a society here in the US, where people of all social-economic status are increasingly conscious of the shape of their body, I doubt that these designs will go over and sell as a viable couture option in personal style.


It kind of makes me think of that popular joke that I will adapt to Christian Dior Spring 2014:
"Of course I am in shape in Dior Haute Couture........
Round is a Shape, isn't it?!"

"Or the Classic question that Fathers-to-be dread hearing from their wife: Does this dress make me look pregnant?"

OHHHH NOOO!

What J-na says about Dior Couture 2014 SS. See the full review.

 But let us highlight the positive designs first. 

Voted one of the ten best-dressed at this year's Oscars, Jennifer Lawrence wore a classic red gown worthy of the Dior name.  There is no argument that the simplicity and elegance speak volumes.  I would wear this in a heartbeat!

Also, as a lover of many textures, which my son and I liberally use in our own designs, these dresses combine a fresh, young texture, akin to a sporty mesh, that gives these looks an original and modern feel. 


See the j-na REVIEW of my second favorite DIOR collection to date, Dior Spring Summer 2013! 

However, in this totally honest review, I must confess that there were too many big balloon-shaped silhouettes, that seemed baggy and shapeless.

 I cannot imagine anyone wanting to look like this!  Puff-balls beware!  

You have competition!  

Who knew that gorgeous runway models could look so silly? 

This final shot reminds me of maternity clothes, as this shape would certainly hide a growing belly!  I just do not know what Mr. Simons was thinking!

I appreciate that the House of Dior has had its challenges since the termination of John Galliano, but Haute Couture really should reach a higher standard than this.  There were 3 more puffy looks we will not bore you with.

We found someone that has something good to say about Dior 2014/15 AW HC! She actually has some valid points!

How did you feel about this Spring's looks from the House of Dior?  Any honest opinions you would like to share are welcomed!
