In July, 8 months after Raf Simons’ exit, Christian Dior chief executive Sidney Toledano told the New York Times, “I had it in mind that a woman designer might be interesting for a while now.” Maria Grazia Chiuri, formerly the longtime co-creative director of Valentino, is “very practical,” he said. “Very…

Raf Simons, the designer behind three and a half very successful years at Christian Dior, has suddenly announced he will be leaving the French design house.
Rihanna looks lovely at Christian Dior’s Spring-Summer 2016 ready-t0-wear collection, presented during Paris Fashion Week. The full look—a prim pink coupled with knee-high black boots with lucite heels—was spot on. Plus, those flowers:
“DO YOU FEEL THE BLOOD MOON?” asks Maison Margiela’s Stepford space witches, in a creepy stage whisper. “I DOOOOOOOO.”
Rihanna looks glorious in her long-awaited Dior ads, which dropped this week and features her as the first-ever black muse for the iconic label. But let’s not bury the lede: the accompanying video, which drops Monday, May 18, will be soundtracked by “Only If For a Night,” a song from her forthcoming album.…
The perfect photo set out of Paris Fashion Week, now with the perfect caption:
Dior and I, which premiered to much critical acclaim at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, seems likely—from the looks of this trailer—to join the ranks of iconic contemporary fashion films like Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's and The September Issue.
Glory be to the heavens, and all the post-"All is Full of Love" androids Raf Simons has channeled for Dior's 2015 Pre-Fall collection. The entire month of December has been a party platter of shit sandwiches served ice cold, but Raf (first name basis, and what) reminds us that the holiday season is a magical time,…
J.Law's in cyclone-press mode for the premiere of Hunger Games: Mockingjay (Part 1), which opens this weekend, and her new Dior holiday adverts dropped not a moment too soon to capitalize on the blockbuster splash.

They have this strange sort of shoe object — flat at the bottom, like a duck's foot, comprised of a slightly…
Haute Couture Week glides along in a big-ass flouncy ball gown (or in experimental formal pants, depending on your mood): this morning, in Paris, Raf Simons showed his fall/winter couture line for Dior. It was very conceptual.
A dress from Christian Dior's fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection keeps popping up, and there are some important things to note about this dress.
Dior is rolling out Jennifer Lawrence's new campaign for Dior, shot by Patrick Demarchelier and coming soon to a fashion glossy near you. The images are simple but eye-catching, though our girl JLaw looks a little, well, abstracted in both, a moment of "huh" caught for eternity.
Often a dress is described as "breezy" when it's lightweight and moves with the air. But at the Dior Haute Couture show in Paris today, the models could literally feel a breeze — all the dresses had freakin' holes in 'em.
The spring 2014 Christian Dior collection — shown today as part of Paris Fashion Week — has a little bit of an organic feel. But not organic like hemp/burlap/undyed cotton. Organic like vines, flowers, snakes and sinew.
The man lies, fully clothed, impeccably dressed, in a a bathtub. His chiseled jaw is set. Square. Granite. He takes a deep drag from an almost-finished cigarette. She removes it from his lips, finishes it off. The apartment isn't his. Or hers, for that matter. But he thought it would be fun. To sneak in, hang out,…
We've written a lot over the years about the racial diversity of the American fashion industry — and particularly the diversity of the models cast to walk in New York fashion week — but less about the biggest brands headquartered in fashion's other three global centers: Paris, London, and Milan.
