The Ultimate Vintage Dior Dress

There are so many dresses that I love and none more so than the vintage Christian Dior 1950's organza-and-rose-coloured-ribbon sequin gown that Reese Witherspoon wore the year she won her Oscar for “Walk the Line” at the 2006 Academy Awards. Rumour has it that she found the gown in a vintage store in Paris and decided she had to have it for the Academy Awards. Apparently the shop owner initially refused to part with the $30,000 dress because it had once belonged to a princess. But when Reese tried it on it fit like a glove with no alterations needed and the shop owner relented.
