Today is John Galliano’s 60th birthday. To celebrate, here’s Angela Lindvall in a Givenchy dress, made from a Vogue pattern and photographed by the great Paolo Roversi.

I’ve featured Galliano’s work on this blog many times, starting with the Empress Josephine-inspired, couture version of V1978 below.
