Fashion Literacy Worth Studying
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.
Combining fashion photography and never before published behind-the-scenes photographs, this gorgeously produced volume by author Jerome Hanover showcases Dior’s creations for film and the movie stars who brought them to life — including Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and, more recently, Penélope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, and of course, Charlize Theron.
Stars in Dior: From Screen to Streets [Rizzoli] will be released on September 4, 2012 and is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com
Must be added to my collection.
PS: On the cover, Charlize Theron is photographed by Alexi Lubomirski in a black satin dress from the Christian Dior Autumn-Winter 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection by John Galliano.
