1950s elegance celebrated in Paris fashion exhibit1950s 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.
