I was lucky enough to get to see the Dior: From Paris to the World exhibit at the Denver Art Museum before it closed. I knew I was going to see some amazing outfits. What I didn’t know was that some of them would be for Elves.
The first outfit was in amongst a collection of dresses inspired by Christian Dior’s famous “New Look.” As soon as I saw it, I realized this was the perfect formal wear for any self-respecting Elf maiden.
The Elf-wear gowns I saw were not as modern. You could easily imagine Arwen wearing this embroidered and beaded beige piece, although I’m not sure it’s fancy enough for Galadriel.
There was also an amazing dress with a crystal “hood” that I think Galadriel would wear. I didn’t get a picture of it, but you found one that the photographer is letting me share.
Perhaps it’s a limited imagination that made me see Elves every time they slapped a hood on something, but I really think these outfits would fly in Rivendell or Lothlorien.
Do you think these outfits are Elf-worthy?
