Mixed in with all of the challenging makeup, clothing, and hair we've seen at the fall shows so far, it's a really nice break to spy a look that feels, well, real. And at Dior's fall '12 show, we saw a whole lot of models who reminded us of the way we look (or at least, strive to look like), daily.
With slick, side-parted ponytails, natural-looking makeup that we'd actually copy, and simple but stunning separates in the form of swishing skirts, pleated dresses, jacquard tops, and big ol' platforms, it was a feminine style that felt true to Dior's "New Look" past, but unfussy, comfortable, and wholly modern. Check out the gorgeous backstage and runway shots we got from the show, and start practicing drawing straight lines with your comb. Deep side parts… here we come!
