Empress Elisabeth of Austria

21 Aug


Empress Elisabeth of Austria (« Sissi ») was one of the inspirations of the Dior by John Galliano Couture Autumn/Winter 2004-2005 Show.

Other Empress Elisabeth of Austria-influenced collections : Emilio Pucci by Peter Dundas Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Romy Schneider in Ernst Marischka’s « Sissi » trilogy was one of the references of this collection), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 (the penultimate look of this show, a Second Empire crinoline, worn by Conchita Wurst, was named « Zizi Imperatrice / Willy the Empress », a pun on « Sissi impératrice », French for Empress Sissi), Roberto Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2004-2005 (Elisabeth of Austria was one of the inspirations of this show).

    Now this is the way to dress for the day….ummmhmmmm….(actually, this would probably require someone with the entire job of dressing someone to dress this way for the day)

      For sure ! Whether at the Austrian court or backstage at Dior, a true beauty needs an army of wardrobe assistants to look this royally resplendent !

    I am enchanted by that fabric — I would love to shake it out and see the pattern up close. 🙂
