Galliano's Flower Garden inspired make up

I've seen few blog posts about Christian Dior Haute Couture Autumn / Winter 2010-2010 collection already, but I wanted to share this gorgeousness with my followers too. This is absolutely stunning, mind blowing collection. It's so over-the-top, feminine, flowery, garden themed collection with lots of tulle and vibrant colours.

John Galliano got his inspiration from flowers, as you can clearly see. I love how colourful this collection is, compared to many other autumn/winter collection. I think this is exactly what gloomy dark autum/winter season needs... Lots of colour and dramatic, fascinating shapes!

The models had inverted cellophane bouquet wraps on their heads, and gorgeous hairdos testing gravity..

The make up was geometric blocks across the models eyes in bright colours.

I also wanted to do a make up look inspired by the make up looks for this collection.

  15. Sigh, I wish I could afford Galliano.... Some of the dresses really recall tulips and they're my favourite. Hopefully this style will be replicated on the high street, although obviously less extravagantly.

    I love how the models' lips were kept the same colour. You did a really good job, I could see your look on one of the models.

  44. I love the geometric blocks of eye shadow; they look so angular and cool!

  45. awesome!

  46. You are a makeup genius! Your makeup is gorgeous and flawless! What a fantastic look. I love all the bright colors. I wish I could do my makeup this way, but I am horrible at makeup in general. Sigh.

  47. those galliano looks are fabulous! reminds me of the flowers at monet's gardens--i took a ton of photos them last summer when i went. amazing makeup! i wish i could do even the simple stuff. haha. can you give me a mini tutorial!?

  48. oohhh
    I saw the Dior Haute Couture in some fashion blog's tweets
    i couldn't agree more
    John Galliano is a genius
    i love the vivid colors

    cool make ups!
    i know I've said this before but I have no luck in make ups
    i always look like I use no make up or like a clown
    but not you
    that bold purple eyeshadow is awesome!

    i'm terribly lame at taking my own pictures too!
    to get one decent pic, I have to at least take 20 shots!
    so I guess the key is perseverance!
    would love to see your make up with the prefect outfit pics :)

    check out my latest post

  49. thx for ur sweet comment :)

    keep updating !

  50. the runway models look like pretty parrots! that eyeshadow is cool

  51. Amazing photos and nice make up. ;-)

  52. John Galliano's talent and creativity always astound me. I'm really loving the multicolor eye looks. I don't know that I would wear it on the street, but I think it's quite striking the way you adapted it.

  53. where are you? I miss you my make up artist

  54. Wow.. Received so many comments while I was gone! Thanks everyone. ♥

    Lynzy: Thanks! I'm happy to hear you like it.

    calivintage: So strange to get someone like you to visit me, someone who I've been following for a looong time, who has LOTS of followers too and probably doesn't check out every blog of the people who comment on her posts :DD Thanks a lot for your sweet comment!! Would be nice to see your make up experiments on your blog too :)

    Orchid: Thanks! I think... We could do absolutly ANYTHING with make up! ;) If you try this, would be nice to see the results on your blog!

    muchlove: Thanks! I agree, those floral dresses are amazing. :) To be honest, I haven't even seen any Tim Burton movies..

    michelle_: Thank you!! :)

    Gets: I LOVE this collection too. Hahah, you're right, those huge flowers make them seem like tiny fairies :'D Even though those flowers in the background are so bright, they'er not bright enough to draw the attention away from the dresses :D And thank youuu!! ♥ Thanks for yous sweet comment, and the award! I'm going to check it out, when I'm reading your other new blogposts I haven't read yet :)

    Amy: Thanks!! :)

    Jazzsquared and Macksquared: Thanks!

    Jennifer Fabulous: Awwww, thanks a lot for your lovely comment!! I'm flattered. :) But I'm sure you could do even the simple stuff, and anything else! Just play with make up.. And experiment.. I'm sure you'd be talented with make up too! What kind of tutorial you'd like to see? I can do a tutorial.. Just give me an idea what tutorial :D

    Stevia: John Galliano really is a genious.. I don't know many designers yet but so far, he's probably my favourite!
    Thanks! I know you wouldn't always look like a clown.. Just try different things, experiment, have fun with make up! :)
    Taking own pictures is very difficult.. :/ Wow, lucky you if you only have to take 20 shots! Sometimes I have to take more than 200 to get even a one good one, and even then I can find something wrong with the pic and I don't like it...
    And I'll check out your latest post very soon!!

    Rebecca Clairine: You're welcome :)

    starcakeastrology: Hahah, yeah :)

    Tom: Thanks! :)

    Liz, love.: Thanks and you're welcome! :D

    Becca: He's gorgeous. My new designer favourite. :D Thanks! I'm not sure if I would wear this look on the street either.. Probably I'd make this little less dramatic look if I wore this on the street..

    Johanna: Awwww. ♥ I'm back! I just posted an update post, and I'm now starting to catching up with all blogs I follow.. Missed you too!!


  55. Totally cool! Has an 80's glam rock feel to it. :-D
