Sharing the exquisite beauty of Dior -70 years of Haute Couture exhibition with my friends Elizabeth and Silvana in Melbourne recently. This is at the entrance to the exhibition and showcases the Bar, afternoon ensemble from 1947.
The stunning floor in the foyer of the National Gallery of Victoria was painted by Michael Lin in collaboration with several local artists.
My outfit for the day included the Sarah Paccini skirt , a seqinned black cami and a vintage silk oriental embroidered jacket. I added black patent leather wedges , a vintage bag, black beads and a little hat from local milliner Susan Macarthur.
We also caught up with Elma, in purple ,who is a Melbourne based instagrammar , and these three gorgeous young ladies who graciously joined us for a photo.
