Maria Grazia Chiuri’s feminist message for Christian Dior marches forward into fall celebrating the 1950s Teddy Girls rebellious spirit British subculture. The Teddy Girls more androgynous style represented a turning away from the elegantly feminine New Look from Dior, a style that directed women back home after their much-needed working women stint during WWII.

Actor Elle Fanning was an apparition straight out of old Hollywood glamour, appearing at the Cannes 2019 screening of Quentin Tarantino’s highly-anticipated film ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’, wearing a jaw-dropping tribute to Christian Dior’s New Look.
The 21-year-old Fanning is the youngest juror in the history of the Cannes Film Festival and doesn’t appear in ‘Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’. The film tackles the summer of 1969, a tumultuous moment of American unrest and the Manson murder of pregnant actor Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie). At the time, the pregnant Tate was married to besieged director Roman Polanski.
Synergies between the worlds of fashion and ballet are intense, with Dior Creative Director of Dior Women Maria Grazia Chiuri crediting dance as a major source of inspiration for her designs. In collaboration with Eleonora Abbagnato—the Director of Ballet at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and an toile at the Opéra National in Paris—Chiuri’s creations are on stage in Rome from March 29 - April 2.
Her stunning collection of costumes for ‘Nuit Blanche’ a ballet in a series of three dances with choreography by Sébastien Bertaud is performed as an ode to composer and musician Philip Glass. Chiuri’s costumes for Abbagnato, principal guest dancer Friedmann Vogel and 16 dancers present a more contemporary examination of concepts of masculinity and femininity. Both genders are dressed in light and delicate, but highly-functional, materials.
