Christian Dior Couture Autumn 2012 [PHOTOS]

Raf Simons bought his signature simplicity to his first couture collection at Christian Dior, mixing it with the classic Dior elements critics said he’d never nail.

The collection was a step away from last season’s fifties looks, with its big swing skirts and ladylike sleek silhouettes, moving more towards the modern. Tapered cigarette pants were paired with peplum tops and rich embellished mini dresses, grid print coat dresses were paired with futuristic metal belts, and each look was finished with a pair retro point toe heels. Well done Raf – even Anna Wintour looked happy.
