Dressed in jodhpurs and a derby hat, John Galliano rode off with our hearts with his breathtaking, equestrian-themed creations for Christian Dior's spring haute couture show in Paris. Tailored riding jackets, romantic lace confections and billowing silk ballgowns referenced both the Belle Epoque era of British couturier Charles James and Dior's iconic 1947 New Look fashion show. Dita Von Teese tweeted from the front row that the show was "a marvel." Fellow front-rower Kylie Minogue agreed. "What John did today was take it to another, more extravagant and beautiful level," she told Fashion Wire Daily.
