About This Book

An exquisite celebration of Dior’s most glamorous clients and the dresses they have brought to life. Embraced worldwide from the very first collection, Dior’s creations have dressed celebrities, debutantes, and other notable figures for generations. This new exquisite tome from the House of Dior focuses on the many extraordinary people who have brought the celebrated designs to life. Through fashion photography and rarely seen and never-before-published illustrations and letters from Dior’s archive, readers will discover the relationships that inspired the couture and helped build the venerable fashion house. From Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor to Rihanna and Natalie Portman, leading women have helped propel and keep Dior at the forefront of the fashion world. Women in Dior showcases the greatest clients of Dior and their most beautiful dresses. Featuring designs by Christian Dior and also by subsequent head designers from Yves Saint Laurent to Raf Simons, this gorgeously produced volume presents Dior’s creations in a new revealing light, and is a must-have for students of fashion and those who aspire to high style.
