The Christian Dior: Couturier du Reve exhibition at the Louvre in Paris... There aren't many words except, breathtaking.
Photo's don't do any justice to what you are about to see below but here they are anyway because you need to see this. Know that I spent a little over four hours in the exhibition, it wasn't crowded, there was just SO much to see and there were moments of interactive media that needed time to be fully enjoyed. Some of those interactive moments were touch buttons you push on the wall (that a lot of people didn't even notice) that projects a little sketch on the wall or played a video. Two-way walls that have had floor to ceiling photos from the celebrities in a dress only to then disappear into clear glass revealing the actual dress behind the wall, and so much more.
However, my absolute favorite moment of the exhibition was the last room. A room filled with couture at every corner, wall, and center column. The room itself had projections and lighting that transitioned from day to night, to stary night, to sunrise. Only to repeat all over again. It was spectacular.
The exhibition was only open from July 5th to January 5th. It was completely by luck and chance that the universe put me there in time to see it along with an amazing friend who got me VIP tickets.
Oh yeah, the line was all the way around the Louvre from both directions of the door. Don't worry, I didn't wait, the security guard had my name in his pocket and let me right in. Let's just say, I know what Kim Kardashian must feel like every day.
