1950s elegance celebrated in Paris fashion exhibit

1950s elegance celebrated in Paris fashion exhibitCinched at the waist, with soft rounded shoulders and a swirling skirt, Christian Dior's famous "Bonbon" dress today appears the epitome of modesty and restraint. The French fashion designer had been yearning for a return to a more feminine silhouette to replace what he called post-war "soldier women with a boxer's build". The hourglass-shaped "Bonbon" or "Sweetie" dress -- one of more than 100 haute couture outfits that have just gone on display at a new exhibition in Paris -- fitted the bill perfectly. The style was highly influential and "found great resonance with other couturiers", according to Olivier Saillard, co-curator of the exhibition at Paris's Galliera museum of fashion.

The designer said he was searching for a modern interpretation of fashion codes from centuries past for his fifth haute couture collection since he was appointed Dior's chief designer in 2012 to replace John Galliano. "Raf asked himself how 18th century fashion could be re-interpreted with today's codes," Dior Chief Executive Sidney Toledano told Reuters after the show. "He looked at it not from the point of view of today, not one of a museum." Other striking dresses included 1920s-inspired embroidered or printed cocktail dresses and long woollen coats with slightly bouffant wrists.

Italian designers Stefano Gabbana stands next to Domenico Dolce as they talk to the media during a party in ShanghaiFashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were each given a reduced, suspended sentence of 18 months in jail on Wednesday for a conviction on charges of hiding hundreds of millions of euros from Italian tax authorities.

The previous decision, by a lower court, handed the duo suspended jail sentences of 20 months each and imposed a fine of up to 10 million euros over avoidance of the payments in Italy, where corporate taxes are among the highest in Europe.
