"A love letter to the cinema from the House of Dior, featuring legendary screen actresses in signature Dior. Embraced by Hollywood and the iconic women who are its stars, the fashions of Christian Dior have been worn by the likes of Marlene Dietrich in Stage Fright, Lauren Bacall in How to Marry a Millionaire, Ava Gardner, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and, more recently, Charlize Theron, Penélope Cruz, and Nicole Kidman. Well before the successes that were to propel Dior to the forefront of the fashion world, the master couturier put his talent to work as a costume designer for the cinema, collaborating with renowned filmmakers and creating timeless ensembles for legendary actresses. Following the untimely death of the designer, the House of Dior's involvement with the cinema continued, from 1958 to the present, with more than fifty films featuring the stars of the silver screen dressed in signature Dior. Combining fashion photography and rarely seen and never before published behind-the-scenes photographs, this gorgeously produced volume showcases Dior's creations for film and the movie stars who brought them to life, and is a must for those who aspire to high style"--

Christian Dior by Richard Martin( Book )

6 editions published between 1953 and 1997 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authors Richard Martin and Harold Koda, curator and associate curator, respectively, of The Costume Institute, present that corpus chronologically, and they also consider each piece as an artistic attainment and the whole as an artistic enterprise. Dior is viewed through his personal aesthetic: attention is paid to his deliberate stylistic evolution, his historicism, and his characteristic style gestures, called "Diorisms." Thus, Dior is reconsidered as a designer of artistic conviction and cautious style. Without denying Dior his magic, the photographs and texts in this book show him as a designer of skilled system and intelligence. The suite of more than 150 photographs, made expressly for this volume and published here for the first time, document the greatest collection of Dior's work in the world, which resides in The Costume Institute

The glass of fashion by Cecil Beaton( Book )

7 editions published between 1954 and 1955 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gorgeously repackaged, this reissue of the classic book presents the iconic photographer's expert and witty reminiscences of the personalities who inspired fashion's golden eras, and left an indelible mark on his own sense of taste and style. "The camera will never be invented that could capture or encompass all that he actually sees," Truman Capote once said of Cecil Beaton. Though known for his portraits, Beaton was as incisive a writer as he was a photographer. First published in 1954, The Glass of Fashion is a classic - an invaluable primer on the history and highlights of fashion from a man who was a chronicler of taste, and an intimate compendium of the people who inspired his legendary eye. Across eighteen chapters, complemented by more than 150 of his own line drawings, Beaton writes with great wit about the influence of luminaries such as Chanel, Balenciaga, and Dior, as well as relatively unknown muses like his Aunt Jessie, who gave him his first glimpse of "the grown-up world of fashion." Out of print for decades but recognized and sought after as a touchstone text, The Glass of Fashion will be irresistible to a new generation of fashion enthusiasts and a seminal book in any Beaton library. It is both a treasury and a treasure

Dior : a new look, a new enterprise (1947-57) by Alexandra Palmer( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1947 Christian Dior rocked the fashion world with his New Look which dominated post war fashion and firmly secured the name of his house in the minds of the public and the industry. He drew on historical models of femininity and utilized the unique skills of Parisian haute couture in textiles, embroidery, cutting and sewing techniques to produce stunning designs that captured the new mood of optimism after the war. Dior also designed and marketed ready-made luxe lines and broke new ground by creating and controlling innovative licensing agreements for all Dior products, from perfume to stockings, jewelery, bathing suits and even men's ties. Based on new research, this absorbing and beautifully illustrated book examines the seminal years of Christian Dior, 1947-57, from a truly international perspective
Dior by Farid Chenoune( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book traces the history of the House of Dior through the constantly changing contours of its haute conture. Arranged in five sequences, this panorama of the evolution of a couture house is also a history of fashion since 1947, of its dreams and realities, its big events - the shows and the society occasions - and main protagonists, its high-profile stars and clients, its models and journalists, and its indispensable petites mains, or seamstresses, and all the others who work their magic discreetly behind the scenes."--Jacket
Christian Dior : the early years, 1947-1957 by Esmeralda de Rethy( Book )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in Undetermined and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1946, France was in the doldrums. The war, the humiliation of German occupation and the rationing of all essential products had turned the City of Light into a gray and sad reflection of its former self. It was at this darkest of moments that Christian Dior, then a young designer for Robert Piguet and Lucien Lelong, met Marcel Boussac, France's textile king and the country's most powerful industrialist. Boussac offered to set up Dior in business, a lease came due on 30 Avenue Montaigne - still the Dior headquarters - and the young designer consulted his mystic. She fell into a trance and cried out "It will be extraordinary. Your house will revolutionize fashion"."
