John Galliano generally serves up Drama. And his Dior show today in Paris did not disappoint. In the gallery ahead: Horsey get-ups (giddy-ups?), voluminous ball gowns and unsettlingly arched brows!

The full skirts with sweeping hems are both retro and now; for some reason the old shape seems new again. And beautiful as ever.
