Vernissage

Last night, the leading names in the worlds of art and fashion in China turned out in force at the UCCA in Beijing for the opening preview of the Miss Dior exhibition, in the presence of the fragrance’s embodiment, the actress Natalie Portman. We take a look.

The 798 Art District of Beijing is a place where art and fashion reign supreme, and so it was only fitting that it was there that the Miss Dior exhibition at the UCCA welcomed its first visitors last night. Among those happy few gathered at the vernissage were some of the biggest Chinese names in fashion and film: internationally-renowned model He Sui, actresses including Zhang Ziyi, Angelababy, and Ni Ni. But also the artists Polly Apfelbaum, Maria Nepomuceno and Hannah Starkey, participating in the exhibition, with the Chinese artist Ma Qiusha, whose work inspired by Miss Dior received its public unveiling. And, of course, actress Natalie Portman, the face of the fragrance, looking radiant in a two-tone Dior dress.

With the Miss Dior exhibition the House gave carte blanche to seventeen female artists to interpret the legend of the very first fragrance conceived by Christian Dior in 1947. After previous stints in Paris and Shanghai, the exhibition opened in these former industrial buildings, where guests were invited to discover or rediscover the fecund universe of the famous perfume and the links that, from the beginning, have united the House with the world of art. There  were works by Salvador Dali, Alberto Giacometti and Joan Miró, whom Christian Dior used to exhibit in his gallery. Then there was the savoir-faire of the women from the atelier, illustrated as they created baudruches and perfumery bows before the visitors’ eyes. And, naturally, there were the works by the 17 contemporary guest artists, each expressing a different facet of Miss Dior. After a private concert from the singer Carla Bruni, the soirée wound up with an after party in the cosy, traditional-inspired setting of the Xiu bar, a Beijing nightlife hotspot.
