Well, hello there.  Going our way ? I seem to have forgotten something ... let's see ~ oh, yes.  To put my leg away.  Tsk, tsk.

Today's Paris fashion illustration is inspired by this extravagant Dior gown.  I could have easily been more modest in the translation, but it seems I'm not above showing a little leg.  We've stopped well short of doing a Cancan.  {Come to think of it, I don't know why !  Therein lies an illustration for another day.}

Behold the function in this form.  Much macaron contraband can be obscured in the generous fall of the skirt ~ and it's ideal for kitty smuggling if the invitation states No Cats Allowed {though that could be grounds for a protest in the finest of Parisian traditions.}  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Paris daydreams to you !

  1. I much prefer your version to the Dior original. And Dior's model looks like she wouldn't dream of stashing contraband macarons, much less petit chats! No, you win (comme toujours) for style, whimsy, and knowing that funny and sexy are pretty much the same thing! Bon weekend, ma belle!

    1. Thank you, dear Alexa ! I wonder if corsetry was responsible for denting her sense of humour. ;) Bon weekend, ma chère. x0

  2. I agree with Alexa. Your model seems to be wearing the dress. Whereas the photographic version has me convinced the model could leave the dress and it would be standing on it's own.

    1. Good point, PA !! Maybe it's actually a cardboard cutout gown. It's a very good one, if that's the case.

  3. PA is right, the dress will stand on its own without a model. Your illustration is a picture of a person in a dress, not a dress on a person.

    1. I actually adjusted her bodice when I illustrated it, Petrea ~ it bothered me and now I know why !!

  4. I agree with the others. And your illustration has that sweet soul the other does not. (also a kitty!) ;)

    1. Thank you, dear Ms M !! And really, I don't know what they were thinking with their photo shoot, omitting a golden opportunity for a gratuitous kitty. ;)
