Dior at Cannes – Pedro Almodóvar

Unquestionably the most ebullient of Spanish directors, Pedro Almodóvar heads the jury for this seventieth edition of the Festival de Cannes. We take a glimpse at his long-established links with Dior.

Like Hitchcock in his day, Pedro Almodóvar is a contemporary director who attaches great importance to the choosing of costumes, the significance of their color, and the essential part they often play in his films. When it comes to his passionate heroines, his focus is not only on their performance but also their clothes, and the Dior creations come with all the glamor necessary for his characters. For Julieta, in competition at Cannes in 2016, the director once again called on the House, seeking creations employing his emblematic colors: black and Dior red with expressionistic accents. Actress Michelle Jenner, as Béa, an eccentric journalist and a childhood friend of Julieta's daughter, appears by chance on the street in an elegant black and white turtleneck sweater. Later on in this film heaving with emotion and drama she wears a flamboyant red Bar suit. Béa stands out as a woman who sets herself apart, right down to her accessories, from her Dior Tribale earrings to her patent boots and the Diorama bag that adds the finishing touch to her look.

Dior at Cannes - Claudia Cardinale

For its 70th edition, the Festival de Cannes surrenders itself to the youth, gaiety and unabashed sensuality of Claudia Cardinale, the star of its anniversary poster. We profile this movie icon, and her place in the history of the house Dior.

In these photographs from 1960s taken in the 30 Avenue Montaigne boutique, the charm and beauty of the actress of Sicilian parentage, then in her twenties, were a perfect complement to the creativity of Christian Dior. Cinema and makeup are so intimately linked that in 1974, a range specially adapted for film was released: the Visiora line was an immediate success, notably including a matte lipstick that didn't reflect the glare of the spotlights. A symbol of femininity and sensuality, Claudia Cardinale would adopt this “Cinema-Television Makeup" range and use it on screen as well as in everyday life.

 

The official poster of the prestigious film festival is a tribute to this hardworking and committed actress, who acquired stardom in France with Cartouche (1962), in which she forms one half of a particularly attractive couple with Jean-Paul Belmondo. Catapulted to fame with the worldwide success of The Pink Panther, the actress signed up to numerous prestigious collaborations with the greatest directors of the time. First, Federico Fellini with the film in which she plays the role of a diva whose beauty storms the screen. Then Visconti revealed her fiery assurance in the sumptuously legendary film The Leopard, which carried off the Palme d'Or in 1963. Becoming an international icon, she could be found working with Richard Brooks (The Professionals), Sergio Leone (Once Upon a Time in the West), starring in The Legend of Frenchie King alongside Brigitte Bardot, and in La Viaccia (again with Jean-Paul Belmondo). A Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1993 and a second tribute at the Berlin Film Festival in 2002 have served to salute a career spanning some one hundred and fifty films.
