FAUX GEISHA INVADE PARIS!!

Dior collection Madame Butterfly inspired
precious Pinkerton, the colonialist gay blade
Silly Orientalism of kimonos, obis, and geisha makeup were “Dior-ified” into Christian Dior Spring 2007 couture collection themed on Puccini’s opera, Madame Butterfly. According to Style.com, “everything about the collection was inspired by Lieutenant Pinkerton’s affair with Cio-Cio San, Madame Butterfly.” See precious Pinkerton, the colonialist gay blade, in the photo on the left.
Whatta joke. The designer for Dior, John Galliano, had Chinese necklines and short sleeves grafted on kimono-esque ballroom dresses. Galliano’s mixing up Chinese with Japan fashion is as boneheaded as putting sombreros on Canadian Mounties. Arrg.
