For Christian Dior's fall 2010 couture collection, John Galliano studied the way light plays on the surface of a flower, and called upon the floral photography of Nick Knight and Irving Penn for inspiration – and the results are breathtaking. With both practical separates and fairy-princess-worthy gowns, and featuring a palette that includes dandelion yellow, blood red and pale lavender, Galliano's show celebrated elements of fantasy in fashion (including raffia belts and headpieces made to resemble a florist's colored celophane wrappers). After so many staid, practical fall collections, this one has certainly brightened up our day and made us remember how fun it is to play dress up.
