Through The Looking Glass

costume institute china1Christian Dior Haute Couture, Spring 2009

The annual Costume Institute Gala will take place this Monday night in New York City with this year’s theme CHINA: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. This editorial in the May issue of VOGUE offers a first look at some gorgeous confections created throughout the years by fashion designers inspired by China. What I love is that many of my favorite people — Grace Coddington, Fei Fei Sun, Pat McGrath and Steven Meisel created these images in front of another ZR favorite, de Gournay wallpaper.
