You Can’t Sit With Us! Edwardian Era Edition: Models (including Stella Tennant and Erin O’Connor) pose together backstage wearing violet toned whimsically bouffant yet outlandish gowns along with eccentric headpieces featuring taxidermy birds, net veils, and a flurry of feathers, as well as matching cane umbrellas and a regal amount of pearl necklaces, cobwebs of intwined tulle and dusty jewels for the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2005. via.

Erin O'Connor wears the embroidered tulle ‘Madeleine’ dress as she arrives by horse and carriage to open the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2005 show. Haunting models walked along a runway clouded in billowing mist alongside cobweb covered cherubs in the gloomy garden, which was an homage to Christian Dior’s childhood home as this show marked the 100th anniversary of his birth.
