Celebrities in Vintage: Emilia Fox in 1957 Christian Dior

Posted by Sheffield on Mar 28th 2012

Emilia Fox looks fantastic in a 1957 Christian Dior dress.  Although this dress screams 1950s, it looks very modern on Ms. Fox when paired with the green clutch and shoes.  A very fresh color combination.  The are many style elements of this dress that tell us it is from the 1950s.  The wide scoop neckline, and wide empire waist band were very fashionable during the 1950s.  The bracelet length sleeves, which were styled to showcase a fabulous bracelet, and thus their name sake. The tea length full skirt (which of course would have been worn with a tulle crinoline in the 1950s) is probably the most signature of the 1950s styles.  And of course, sherbert colors like this peachy coral, were the color trend of the 1960s.

But when worn with a modern green clutch, and green platform shoes, this 1950s dress becomes very fresh and contemporary.

What do you think, love it or hate it?
