Christian Dior in Russia- 1959


I just came across these fascinating shots that were taken during the Dior Fashion Show in Russia in 1959.  It was the first time a Paris couturier had shown a collection behind the iron curtain. Being a huge fan of classic Dior, I am completely thrilled at my find. And the expressions on the faces of some of these people are priceless. They were clearly not used to seeing anything like those elegant ladies in such finery!
