While the whole Christian Dior Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection seemed inspired by 1940s films of the US Navy visiting the South Pacific, it had a clear duality. First, a stream of breezy sailors sauntered by; next, a tropical parade of island enchantresses swung to the scene. In color and design, the two parts had little in common, save for the starlet wigs and Dietrich makeup. If we forgive the disjointedness, the show was buoyant with an infectious joie-de-vivre and numerous "Ooh" and "Aah" moments.
