Dior RTW cover First Raf Simons For Dior Ad Campaign Is Out
Finally, the first ready-to-wear ad campaign images (above left) for Dior as guided by the brand’s new creative director, Raf Simons, have been released. The campaign brings a much lighter touch as compared with former Dior head, John Galliano (see images from the 2012 campaign he directed above right), who was known for his more dramatic viewpoint. Shot by Willy Vanderperre and featuring models Anna Martynova, Marie Piovesan, and Daria Strokous, the ads aim for a streamlined look, modernized with surrealist touches.

Natalie Portman Wedding Dress First Blurry Shot

NataliePortmanWeddingDress 392x540 Natalie Portman Wedding Dress First Blurry Shot

A first shot of Natalie Portman’s wedding dress. (In case you’re way behind, she married dancer Benjamin Millepied this past weekend.) It’s blurry but you get the idea. And gosh she looks happy!

Some are speculating that it’s a Dior dress. [UPDATE: One of our dear commentors informs us that People is saying it's Rodarte.] I somehow doubt that given the statement Portman made about John Galliano pre-dismissal as head designer for Dior not so very long ago. For a refresh, she said:

“I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”

And yes, Galliano is gone, but why would she want to risk in any way referencing that oh-so-very-ugly memory in the form of a gown that will be immortalized in images forever and is supposed to be part and parcel with the happiest day of one’s life. Then again, you never know with the cuckoo Hollywood people so I would only be a little shocked if it were Dior.

Raf Simons To Replace Galliano At Dior

RafSimonsNYT 540x297 Raf Simons To Replace Galliano At Dior

The NY Times has broken the story that Belgian designer Raf Simons (shown above) will replace John Galliano at Dior. According to the Times, talks began in October 2011:

At the time Mr. Simons, 44, was at Jil Sander. But while Mr. Simons is influential, having started the trend for bright colors that has washed over much of the affordable clothing market, and was in discussions in 2010 with the French rival PPR about taking over Yves Saint Laurent, he was not widely seen as a candidate for Dior. His minimalist designs for Jil Sander seemed at odds with Dior’s ultra-femininity. And he is a low-key presence in a business that tends to love Barnum types.

Funny, last week I was chatting with an international investor about LVMH (which owns Dior) dragging its feet on finding a Galliano replacement. He explained that LVMH let’s each house operate fairly independently and the Dior crew is known for being conservative and slow to take action, but he said that recently there had been a push from above for action and the decision would be coming down very soon. And voila, here the moment is upon us.

The manicure featured above is a red Ruffian, which was shown at the Dior spring 2010 runway show. It comes from a recent Vogue Italy article on nail trends, which declares, “The rule: less square and never too long.” I’m not big on dos and don’ts, but I have to say I’ve left behind square shapes…for now anyway.
