The legacy of Dior is best understood and appreciated when dressed on the female form. Monsieur Christian Dior’s childhood home and museum in Granville, Normandy will host Women in Dior – Sublime Elegance of a Portrait, an exhibition celebrating the couturier’s revolutionary work and the iconic images it has spawned from it. Fortunately for those short on time and unable to pop by Normandy, an accompanying book paying homage to stunning portraits of the fabulous women who wear Dior will be released by prestigious publishers Rizzoli.
