STARS IN DIOR: FROM THE SCREEN TO STREETS
THE EXHIBITION AT THE CHRISTIAN DIOR MUSEUM IN GRANVILLE, IN NORMANDY, IN THE VERY HOUSE WHERE THE COUTURIER SPENT HIS CHILDHOOD.
From Marilyn Monroe to Charlize Theron, Olivia De Havilland to Sophia Loren, Rita Hayworth to Sharon Stone, Ava Gardner to Marion Cotillard, the stars of the 7th art have often worn creations by the house of Dior, whether they were designed by its founder or his successors, on the set, at cinema-related events or simply in their everyday life. This exhibition retraces the ties, both friendly and professional, that linked the house of Dior and the stars of the silver screen. “In the play of mirrors where fashion and cinema reflect one another, in two visual worlds tied to emotion and beauty, the actress/client is transformed into a model or muse,” explains Florence Müller, the head curator of the exhibition.
