The problem with Raf Simons’ Dior by Suicide Blonde

I innately have problems with designers who don’t consider a woman’s body when they’re creating. My favorite designers flatter a lady’s shape, whether it’s a woman’s curves (like Dolce and Gabbana) or her long lean lines (like Alexander Wang.) When models like Jourdan Dunn’s body don’t work in these dresses, this is a sign. This is a designer not thinking of an actual body being inside the looks he’s creating. Two of Dior’s spokespeople, Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence, arguably two of the most rockin’ bodies in film right now, look at best flattened and compressed in these collections. At worst their figures’ lines are lost, hems ending at an awkward point mid calf, peplums over exaggerating hips that are actually the perfect proportion, pants cut in completely unflattering ways that it’s hard to remember there is actually a beautiful lady contained within.
