Weekend Eye Candy - Dior Insect Dress, 1951

1951 - Christian Dior designed this white pique dress embroidered with insects.  Dragonflies, bumblebees, beetles, and more become inspiration for haute couture.  You've got to love that!

Wow, what a stunning gown! I love how put together the whole look is, what with her opera coat and matching hat. I'd be interested to see what kind of rigging is going on under that dress to make the hips stand out so. It really makes the waist look nice and tiny!
