Times may be tough out there, but trust John Galliano to deliver the fashion crowd a 'let them eat cake' moment. His couture collection for Summer 09 at Dior was a testament to couture opulence - rich materials such as silk, taffeta and brocade, and breathtaking embroidery were a real celebration of the coutourier's art. So who cares if the gowns were a bit on the costume side, we can all dream a little can't we?

Even the most jaded of the fashion crowd couldn't help but enjoy John Galliano's histrionic men's show in Paris on Friday. Held in an old train depot filled with thousands of candles, the models walked the glittering red runway dressed as pioneer soldiers and even satyrs. Fashion File was on hand to witness the models' wild transformations backstage, headed by legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath. Galliano showed a great collection and taught everyone a lesson that night: even when the times are tough you can still have a little fun.
