In Pics: All The Sartorial Awesomeness From Dior’s 70th Anniversary Celebration
Monday, July 3, 2017, is a date that’s definitely going down in the pages of fashion history in general, and Christian Dior’s history in particular, as a very memorable day. For one, the day not only marked the 70th anniversary of the label but also the couture debut of the design house’s first female creative head, Maria Grazia Chiuri, who showcased the collection on a fern-lined runway at the Invalides museum as part of the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. And for two, the day also marked the launch of Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, a retrospective organised at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Paris in celebration of Dior’s 70 years in the industry. This second is the more important reason, of course.
Touted as one of fashion history’s most extensive exhibition ever, the display houses 300 dresses from the Dior’s personal archives and those rented from other sources. The out-worldly collection comprises of designs by all the creative heads that have led the label starting from the founder, Christion Dior to all his successors including Marc Bohan, Yves Saint Laurent, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria. The exhibition will open to the public from July 5, 2017, to January 7, 2018.
With a legacy as impressive as that of Dior, one can only imagine the grandeur of the display. Obviously, it deserved a launch just as spectacular. And so it got one! As is expected of any Dior event, this one saw its fair share of stars sparkling the night with their charm and their gloriously stunning style statements. From Dior girl Bella Hadid to Dior loyals Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman and more, the night saw some of the most amazing style stars step out in their Christian Dior best. Oh, and Robert Pattinson was the star of the night, thanks to his irresistible looks and his sharp Dior suit.
