Charlize and Penelope go into cruise control

15 MAY 2007

The A-list turnout at John Galliano's 2008 cruise collection for Dior in New York this week confirmed that fashion's "other season" is now the place to see and be seen. Charlize Theron and her Head In The Clouds co-star Penelope Cruz, dancer Dita Von Teese and Kylie Minogue - who was modelling her new hair do - had all taken up front row positions. And they won't have been disappointed. Galliano's sartorial vision for next year is simply made for glamour-loving celebrities, whether on the beach, aboard a yacht off St Tropez or dazzling at an evening do.

Everything from the bouffant hairstyles and vintage-look sunglasses to the womanly silhouettes suggested Fifties sophistication. Bikinis were dressed up with elaborate silk coats, feathers, babydoll tops, broad-brimmed hats and teetering stilettos, while tight floral-print trousers and colourful jackets provided a statement-making day look.

An Indian summer theme also ran through the collection from a layered, azure blue tunic over trousers embroidered with matching gold thread, to a summery white skirt over trousers picked out with intricate Indian designs. Animal prints also continue to be a strong influence for chic daywear.

Galliano's eveningwear, as usual, pulled out all the stops. In varying sherbet shades of lemon, raspberry and lime, the frocks exuded old school elegance worthy of Rita Hayworth. Silhouettes ranged from slinky slit-to-the-thigh shifts to the goddess-style one-shouldered affairs that Jennifer Lopez loves so much.
