Weekend Eye Candy - Christian Dior, 1959

Christian Dior couture, Fall 1959
The other day, I was sharing fashion plates from 1914 on my Facebook page.  This morning, I found this image of a Christian Dior evening gown from 1959.  I do believe St. Laurent, who was the designer at Dior in 1959, may have been influenced by the hobble skirts of an earlier age. 

Silk tunic over silk hobble skirt, 1914.
What do you think?
