Styled by Grace Coddington, an unrecognizable ice blond Karen Elson was photographed by David Sims for an editorial in the Vogue April 2011 issue.
The editorial, "Form & Function", points out the new shapes that Prada, Jil Sander, John Galliano, Dries Van Noten, Celine and Rochas have us getting used to for Spring 2011.

The rumor mill as to who will replace John Galliano as Dior's head creative director hasn't stopped spinning since the designer's tragic fall from grace a week ago. At times it feels as though people are simply throwing their favorite designers' names out there. We still have a good couple of weeks of speculating to go, since Dior is in no rush to make a decision. According to Fashionologie, Dior won't make statements on the matter for quite some time. "They’re receiving offers," a source close to LVMH says. French employment laws are also in LVMH's way. Until the completion of Galliano's firing process which might take a few weeks, the luxury conglomerate cannot officially begin replacing him.
While many ...

Apparently Dior's zero-tolerance policy tromps Paris Fashion Week, because they just announced that they began layoff proceedings against John Galliano. As the situation quickly spiraled out of control, the designer's suspension has now turned into being relieved of all Dior duties.
Last Friday, John Galliano's drunken bar brawl turned into anti-Semitism allegations and a police investigation. Dior, in turn, waisted no time and immediately suspended the designer. While we still thought Galliano might recover, Natalie Portman refused to wear Dior to the 2011 Oscars - despite being Dior's spokeswoman. Then came to light a video of another incident in which a heavily drunk Galliano has a less than pleasant insults exchange that included, yet again, a tone of distain of all ...

John Galliano really knows how to break a girl's heart. Dior Couturier was arrested yesterday after a drunken brawl at a Paris café. According to witness statements, Galliano was drunk, allegedly throwing curse words and anti-Semitic remarks, eventually attacking a couple - fellow patrons at the Marais district café.
Police are investigating the matter and no charges have been made so far, but that was enough for Dior to ask Galliano to stay away from all work duties until the situation is resolved. This puts strongly into doubt the forthcoming Dior Fall 2011 show on March 4th.
It should be noted that while his drunken and belligerent state was confirmed by the police, the allegations regarding anti-Semitic remarks were not and remain ...
John Galliano has sent a much more tamed Christian Dior Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection down the runway than say, even in the previous season. Although still colourful, fiery bright color pallet was set aside, giving room to pastels and rich chocolates with an obligatory splash of fuschia here and there. Even the silhouettes, while still dramatic, were more, dare I say, minimal. Cinched at the waist for a classic hour-glass shape. But these aren't demure 40's housewives we're talking about. With fiery bright lips and dramatic black eyeliner, the looks were more reminiscent of 40's movie heroines projecting an almost aggressive allure rather than debutantes.
Tight pencil skirts, oversize New Look full skirts and long trails. All cinched tightly at ...
The young couturier, Alexis Mabille, opened Couture Fashion Week in Paris today with his Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection.
Mabille, staying true to himself - not believing couture and ready-to-wear shows should be separated - sent models down the runway in a rather eclectic mix of pieces. Here we have coquettish cigarette pants, in white or floral print, matched with a white or black cinched-waist jacket, just-above-the-knee full-skirt strapless dresses and old world glamour gowns channeling a Grecian goddess. Especially brave were the multifunctional last few looks. Starting out as an new-look type gown, the oversize full skirt - easily untied by the model - was turned into a cape, revealing a cute 60's over-the-knee dress.
Today, John Galliano for Christian Dior, ...
