Dior’s Lady – The face of Dior since 2008, French actress Marion Cotillard is back once again for the resort 2014 Lady Dior advertising campaign. In the past, Marion has posed for the likes of Steven Klein and Jean-Baptiste Mondino, and now British photographer Tim Walker captures the brunette beauty in a series of images which embrace color. With her timeless looks and effortless elegance, it’s easy to see why Dior has kept up the collaboration for five years and running.
Girl on Fire – Girl of the moment, Jennifer Lawrence, appears in the fall-winter issue of Dior Magazine.

The American actress shows off the season’s outerwear and tailored suiting for the striking portraits.

Dior’s Spring Garden – Amidst a runway show featuring a setting of hanging flora, the spring 2014 collection from Dior similarly embraced the floral theme whether it was quite literal with prints or more abstract with shape. Raf Simons has reinterpreted the house’s DNA for the past several seasons, and now it looks like he is bringing his own unique stamp to the brand. The spring preview implemented emblem decorations which adorned the iconic Dior “Bar” jacket. In fact, decoration was a main theme of the show, whether with bold prints or dresses embellished with colorful sayings like, “Primrose Path” or “Ultra Violet Mouth”. It was a change from the minimal restraint Simons has shown in the past. For the finale, models walked in black suiting decorated with kaleidoscopic patterns or silver jacquard dresses.
