Oh, Christmas Tree


Most people decorate their Christmas tree with tinsel, twinkling lights, an assortment of colorful balls, and a bright star on top. But leave it to the devices of flamboyant fashion designer John Galliano, and you’re guaranteed a twist on the holiday tradition. The Christian Dior creative director was asked by high-end London hotel Claridge’s to design a festive tree, the first time in its 112 year history that it has collaborated on its holiday decorations.

Adorning the blue-tinted branches are snow leopards, dragonflies and even parrots, which Galliano said were intended to echo the hotel’s art deco design.
