Stars In Dior

Dior is set to launch its own book celebrating the iconic celebrities that have supported the fashion house throughout the decades.

From Marlene Dietrich, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor to Natalie Portman, Charlie Theron and Penelope Cruz, ‘Stars In Dior‘ features images of the screen sirens shot by legendary photographers wearing Dior.

The 240 page book also looks at Dior’s longstanding relationship with film, dating back to the 1940’s when Christian Dior began his fashion career as a costume designer.

In Alfred Hitchcock’s Stage Fright, Marlene Dietrich imposes her friend and couturier Christian Dior: “No Dior, no Dietrich!” Hitchcock, well known for the care he takes in developing his heroines’ style, will have to give in to the star’s demands. Her contract requires a Dior wardrobe (which she was allowed to keep after the end of shooting). With no hard feelings, the director will admit: “Miss Dietrich is a professional. A professional actress, a professional cameraman, a professional dress designer!” © Rue des Archives/BCA

Marlene Dietrich poses for Horst P. Horst (American Vogue, December 1, 1947).
The actress liked to refashion her outfits by switching off tops and bottoms, for example, with the Chandernagor ensemble, Christian Dior Haute Couture collection, autumn–winter 1947. Originally, it had a black wool top with pale rubies embroidered by Hurel, but on that day she preferred to wear a top of her choice. © Art + Commerce / Photo Horst P. Horst
