WOW, that first one is amazing. Happy Valentine's!

#6 is definitely Givenchy. Audrey Hepburn wears the same dress in "Funny Face," in fact!

Is #1 Christian Dior? The sash reminds me of some of his other dresses from 1956.

Sigh. All of that magnificence is almost too much! (I say.. almost.) Gorgeous.

The Balmain and Givenchy are mouth-wateringly beautiful.

I love the Givenchy one....maybe that's just because Audrey wore it! Either way it's gorgeous! :)
