The Many Emotions Of Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard might have gotten caught in the rain at the British Academy of Film And Television Arts Awards. Or maybe she's just doing her best Jennifer Lawrence-at-the-Golden-Globes impression. Either way, this sunshine yellow Christian Dior number looks amazing, with or without the added sexiness of the sheer panel (which the designer swears i…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Isabel Lucas’s Candy-Stripe Dior Mini

Isabel Lucas is a regular freakin' fashion plate, but that doesn't exempt her from falling victim to a textbook case of runway looks not translating well in real life. This minidress seemed paler, floatier, more ethereal when it was marched down the Christian Dior catwalk back in September; photographed on Isabel at the opening of…

Models Get Crystallized At Christian Dior Couture

This just in: runway beauty be cray, especially when it comes to couture week. Raf Simons's lovely cream-colored gowns and floral frocks at Christian Dior were offset by some serious bedazzling of the mouth. I'd usually gamble that this is the kind of look that won't see life off the runway come spring, but the…

All Our Favorite Looks From Paris Couture Week

It's Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns -- garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars. Couture collectors are willing to pony up the big bucks because…

All The Looks From Raf Simons First Christian Dior Show

Whoo! Guys, it's Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week! Designer Raf Simons debuted his first collection with Christian Dior this week, to a mind-blowing array of celebrities and designers. The show was set in a series of rooms covered in wall-to-wall blue orchids, white mimosas and roses, which gave the impression of being inside a Rose…

Raf Simons Picked To Replace Galliano At Dior

After more than a year of speculation, a new designer has been chosen to head up Christian Dior. Raf Simons, formerly of Jil Sander, will take over the position vacated by John Galliano after the designer was fired from his role for making anti-semetic remarks in February 2011. Several designers--including Marc Jacobs, Hedi…

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won't be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn't mea…

Marc Jacobs Is Glad He’s Not At Dior

"Well… it’s a little bit more complicated than that…but we agreed that it was probably best for everyone. It’s a great honor to be considered, and [head of Dior] Mr. Arnault is a super intelligent man and a very smart man and it was certainly a very great honour for him to know that I…

Marion Cotillard Has A Dior-Inspired Freak Out

It's hard being an in-demand celebrity. Ask Marion Cotillard, who plays actress Margaux in this short clip for Dior directed by John Cameron Mitchell. Margaux's managers are driving her crazy and the photographer on her fashion shoot is pushing her to the brink, so she does what any woman on the verge of nervous breakdow…

Christian Dior’s “New Look” In A New Book

Designer Christian Dior helped revolutionize fashion with his "New Look," which refined women's dressing after World War II, ushering in an era of luxurious refinement. A new collection from Rizzoli gathers around 100 of Dior's signature styles and gives us a historical tour through the designer's ample closets. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, Dior Couture re-positio…

How Shocking: John Galliano Guilty Of Racism

Good news for people who hate bad guys: After six months of legal jimmerjammer, John Galliano, the former fashion designer for Christian Dior, was found guilty of “public insults toward persons on the basis of their religion or origin.” Galliano, if you remember, famously got caught shouting racist and anti-Semitic remarks at fellow patro…

Natalie Portman Dons A Headband — And Nothing Else — For Miss Dior

Looking very much like Blair Waldorf (but in a topless pose Blair would never be caught dead in), Natalie Portman models for Christian Dior's Miss Dior Cherie perfume. I never thought I'd see the day when Natalie Portman posed nude, sort of. [Celebuzz]…

Christian Dior Would Like To See You (Literally) In Contact Lenses

Combining fashion and eyewear is a slightly contradictory deal. On the one hand, there are people who actually need to wear glasses, and so they opt for designer frames to deal with their genetic failings (but often still wish that their condition didn't have to be a fashion statement). Then there are those who…

Yooouuu Are Sooo Beauoootiful To Meeeee …

I don't know what to say other than if you're a dude parading around outside the Dior show in those heel-less Nina Ricci boots and nylon shorts, you best shave your legs. [No Excuses]…

Fall Beauty Preview: Dior’s “New (Vintage) Look”

Ever since Barbie celebrated her 50th birthday, the icon has been appearing everywhere from news shows to Hollywood to basically every single international edition of Vogue to name a few venues, and fashion runways across the world have been no exception. We even caught a glimpse of her at Dior's couture show, i…

Marion Cotillard’s Naked Goddess Heels

Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard looked prim and proper in her ladylike suit at the "Bike in Style" event earlier this week. However, if you looked closely at her Dior shoes, you'd notice the heels are in the shape of a naked female who is supposedly a fertility goddess. The French have always been masters of the…

Quick Pic: Hair Hat

Instead of putting hats on his models, designer John Galliano had their hair crimped into chapeau-like structures. Don't try this at home, people. [Christian Dior fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/29/2008]…
