1954 Dior Couture Copycat

in 1950s

This incredible dress was worn by Natalie Portman at the Oscars 2012. It’s actually 1954 Dior Couture. Isn’t it a stunning retro look?

Want to see if I can make my own version using recycled materials? I bought this red-with-black-polka-dot polyester dress in a charity shop in the US a few months back…..

…and turned it into this!
