Dior, and in some cases, his successors too. So it was quite

ceremonies held around the world (the Academy Awards,
the César Awards and the Golden Globes). Today’s great
names are Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Penélope

changed but the passion for Dior stays the same.
The Dior filmography is impressive, featuring over 90
films. It started in 1942: Christian Dior was fascinated by
film and became a costume designer even before his
couture house was created in 1946.
This book devotes a special place to the J’adore
advertisement starring Charlize Theron, in which cinema
magic brings back to life Marlene Dietrich, Grace Kelly
and Marilyn Monroe, all of whom had their own links with
the House of Dior.
Film stills, location shots, photographs and portraits
of actresses: the 250 illustrations in the book take us deep
into the most glamorous aspects of the film world.
