We suppose it was not a question of if, but when Marion Cotillard would pop up on the red carpet in a piece from Raf Simons‘ debut ready-to-wear collection from Christian Dior. The actress was the first to wear a dress from his couture collection at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises back in July, and this weekend she stepped out in a black minidress straight off the Paris runway for the Rust and Bone premiere at the BFI London Film Festival.
We’ll admit we were pretty giddy with anticipation this morning as we watched the crowd settle down at Raf Simons’ first-ever ready-to-wear show for Christian Dior. Unfortunately, we were at our desks in New York rather than in the stark white box of a venue the brand set up on the Esplanade des Invalides in Paris, but that fact barely diminished our excitement. Between Twitter, Instagram, and livestreaming, there’s plenty to take in even if you’re 3,000 miles away.
Once upon a time, fashion shows were just that: shows. We’ve been to some pretty amazing runway shows in our time, but we long for the days when models performed.
Vogue put Rooney and Kate Mara on this year’s best dressed sisters list, and last night the stylish siblings battled it out on the red carpet.
Now that Marc Jacobs is said to be out of the running for the top job at Dior, those in the know say Belgian designer Raf Simons is in talks to take over the creative side at the storied French fashion house.
After months of speculating and hinting heavily that designer Marc Jacobs would be taking the helm at Dior, the rumor mill says his previously inevitable appointment to the head of the French fashion house is looking a lot less likely.
Marc Jacobs was so elated after his inventive presentation for Louis Vuitton yesterday that he didn’t even have time to mention what everyone in fashion wants to know: is he leaving Vuitton for Dior?
This week Kate Middleton‘s $400,000 wedding dress went on display, Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his plans for Macy’s, and Harper Beckham made her Twitter (and Facebook!) debut. Also, Valentino had some things to say about Christian Louboutin and Summer’s Eve proved it really is the worst.
Clearly one major luxury fashion house has learned not to mess with Christian Louboutin. Christian Dior, which already has its own problems to deal with, said Wednesday that in contrast to reports that would suggest otherwise, it has no plans to make or sell shoes featuring Louboutin’s trademark red soles next season.
A disturbing 1963 interview with Christian Dior‘s fascist niece Françoise Dior has surfaced, and now the internet is abuzz with news of the fashion house’s alleged Nazi ties. Let’s set the record straight, people.
Well, that was fast. Christian Dior has officially suspended John Galliano‘s professional role at the company in light of Thursday’s arrest and allegations of assault and anti-Semitic remarks.
Couture season is upon us, people! And what a glorious season it is, chock full of the most beautiful, artful and downright lustful sartorial creations of the year. We are gifted with couture collections but twice a year, and John Galliano‘s Christian Dior shows are always our favorite. Why? Because they are pure, unadulterated fashion porn.
He may have his detractors, but when it comes to fashion, Kanye West gets it. Like, he really, really gets it. The man tweets about Comme des Garcons and Lanvin. He wants a “fashion wifey,” for goodness’ sake! He’s got a whole Rolodex full of the industry’s finest, which he showcases on his latest track “Christian Dior Denim Flow.”
In case you haven’t noticed the flurry of couture photos inundating the internet, Paris’ Couture Fashion Week started on Sunday. And though we have many, many wonderful thoughts about John Galliano‘s F/W 2011 collection for Dior Haute Couture, our first one involved Jared Leto, his presence, and his bleach blonde faux-ish hawk.
It’s couture time in Paris, and kicking things off -– in a big way -– was John Galliano. Dior’s Fall 2011 couture collection is one for the records as nods to Mother Nature resulted in exquisite and undeniably imaginative takes on the flower.
They say you can’t know where you’re going until you realize where you’ve been. With that in mind, we’re taking a glance back. The past week has been a roller coaster of fashion news and events — and luckily, we were there to catch the good, the bad (like Dov Charney‘s PR mess), and the ugly.
Christian Dior is taking your eyes one step past designer frames. Now, you can get contact lenses with the ‘CD’ logo etched in alongside gold flakes…because everyone knows nothing brings out your inner vampire like unnatural eye colors.
From the summery straw hats at Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta to the the touches of 1950s Americana at Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior, the resort collections were ladylike, fun and evocative of a life by the sea in. Albeit a very, very wealthy one.
Sex and the City fans everywhere have been itching for whatever details they can get their manicured hands on before the second installment of the movie hits theaters next week. On Wednesday, to curb the appetites of some, stylist and SATC costume designer Patricia Field invited a small group of editors to her studio to talk fashion and Carrie.
