  • Pleasingly Pleated

    Marion_Cotillard_dior1

    I’m not always a fan of “big” dresses, and glittery shoes typically look a few seasons back for me. But put it altogether on Marion Cotillard and the result is sublime. Styled by the wrong hands, a plisse pleated dress like this can be overwhelming. But the simplicity and ease of Cotillard’s hair, makeup, and confidence make this Dior Haute Couture look stellar. Another lesson learned in that it’s not what you wear but how you wear it.  More from the […]

    Printemps Paris Holiday Windows

    Retail Remedy: The world of Dior for the holidays. Richard Nahem continues to bring us his tour of  Paris Holiday Windows I adore the Printemps windows this year but I have a slight problem with them. As fun and imaginative as they are, they symbolize promoting a brand rather than the spirit of Christmas. The windows are devoted to the Dior brand and their logo and name is bluntly splashed everywhere. As much as they appealed to me, I think tiny tots and kids […]
