You’ll notice I didn’t write “so much.”
When we attended the Jackie Kennedy exhibit in Chicago, we got to see cut away haute couture, which revealed the breathtaking workmanship that goes into the creation of every true “designer” piece.
FGWV has a video of this painstaking process.

What would he accessorise the Dior with? ‘Black and not a dagger heel: these narrow heels make women believe they have fat calves. Look at the Queen, in her thick, two-inch heels. She always looks just perfect.’ (…)
‘The difference between looking good and looking great can often be 1cm — a hem, a waist, a little dart.’ (…)
The mark of a ‘luxury’ garment is that it has ample fabric in every seam, so that it can be let out as your body changes. (…)
So what last-minute tips would he give to the lucky person who takes my Dior couture home? ‘Enjoy it, don’t wear it as though it’s precious. And if you pose for a photo, put one hand on your hip and angle your elbow at almost 180 degrees, not out, like a wing, which only makes your upper arm look even wider.’
