Dalida, the compelling exhibition at the Musée Galliera

Paris’s Musée de la Mode, Palais Galliera, displays an exhibition dedicated to a true icon, Dalida, and especially to her glamourous look made famous by her ample bosoms and alluring lower back. To visit from 27 April to 13 August 2017.

She made people scream all around the world and sang 2.000 songs in over ten languages. When she took her own life, she made millions of fans cry. Each of her love drama made hearts thrill, she is a true gay icon...

Who once was miss Egypt in 1954 is actually named Yolanda Cristina Gigliotti. She is noticed by Bruno Coquatrix (owner and manager of the music hall Paris Olympia) himself. But Europe 1 program manager, Lucien Morisse, is the one who believes the most in her and launches the success of the song "Bambino", the starting point of the singer's fame and career. Dalida (1933-1987) is Italian, she was born on Egyptian soil and obtained French nationality: from her mixed origins, she developped a hybrid identity, hot and glamorous. People still dream of her Mediterranean silhouette, her tan breasts and her eyes outlined with black.

The exhibition at the Palais Galliera thought out by the museum manager, Olivier Saillard, and an invited curator, Sandrine Tinturier, tries to give Dalida’s sensual look the place of honor. Each line is a love story. Carven 50’s dresses are exhibited alongside with Jean Dessès fiery red sheath dress, Loris Azzaro elegant outfits, Balmain tunic dress and of course the disco costumes covered in sequins created in the 70’s by Michel Fresnay.
