Embraced by Hollywood and the iconic women who are its stars, the fashions of Christian Dior have been worn by the likes of Marlene Dietrich in Stage Fright, Lauren Bacall in How to Marry a Millionaire, Ava Gardner, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and, more recently, Charlize Theron, Penélope Cruz, and Nicole Kidman.
The legendary screen actresses from the world in signature Dior are featured in a Rizolli Editions book called “Stars in Dior:
From Screen to Streets” – a love letter to the cinema from the House of Dior with text by Jerome Hanover, foreword by Serge
Toubiana and an introduction by Florence Muller.
Well before the successes that were to propel Dior to the forefront of the fashion world, the master couturier put his talent to work as a costume designer for the cinema, collaborating with renowned filmmakers and creating timeless ensembles for legendary actresses. Following the untimely death of the designer, the House of Dior’s involvement with the cinema continued, from 1958 to the present, with more than fifty films featuring the stars of the silver screen dressed in signature Dior. Combining fashion photography and rarely seen and never before published behind-the-scenes photographs, this book showcases Dior’s creations for film and the movie stars who brought them to life, and is a must for those who aspire to high style.
Stars in Dior will be available from Rizzoli Editions this September priced at $65.00.
