‘Junon’ Evening Dress (Detail)
Christian Dior
Autumn/Winter 1949-50
‘Junon’, or Juno to the Romans, was more vividly conceived. The Magnificent skirt of forty-five petals, like abstractions of peacock feathers without their ‘eyes,’ obliquely references the bird associated with the queen of the gods.
Each petal on the ‘Junon’ dress sparkles with iridescent sequins in varying shades of pale greens and blues to emerald green and navy blue, with sprinklings of rust.
