John Galliano embarks on a crime cracking spree!

The inspiration was Film Nior and the models glided on the runway in delicate dresses in bright colors and laced silken lingerie, the show being a modest sister of Dior's Haute Couture version which we witnessed a few months back! But the look that held me in awe was John Galliano entering the runway as a detective lurking in a spooky corner whose dark silhouette ominously looking out for trouble and then lo behold the lights are on John and we see him dressed in a nude trench coat and black trousers looking every bit the Sherlock Holmes he plays and seeing him take his final bow at the end of the runway with an enigmatic "I-know-it-all" look left me exclaiming "Monsieur Detective my vanity case is missing, will ye come home and solve the case of my stolen vanity...?

Here's the drama as it unfolded on the runway of Christian Dior's Spring 2010 RTW fashion show...

First the shadow figure...


Then the MAN


And finally the killer look...


As Jim Morrison once sang, This is the End, Beautiful Friend...

P.S: John Galliano's look was actually inspired by Humphrey Bogart's movie character (shown below) , I likened him to Sherlock Holmes for the similarity of the role played (namely detective) and not the look.

not a fan of the look because they guy that's wearing it is clearly 4 sizes too small, and is on crack.
