This is the story of a travelling dress, leaving Paris and 30 Avenue Montaigne where it first saw the light of day, and heading to Cannes to the awaiting star who would be wearing it amid a crackling of flash bursts on the ascent up the famous steps. It's also the story of a pair of shoes, which one discovers as they're readied to walk the red carpet. This Dior story, composed of elegance and stolen moments, is told to us by the photographer Sophie Carre. She who has been capturing the behind-the-scenes world of the House's fashion shows for eight years now takes us to the action away from the official cameras at the Festival de Cannes. From the final preparations to the excitement of climbing the steps as seen from the balcony of the Dior suite at the Majestic; from the makeup sessions of the stars to the moment when the stress of the day falls away, in the light of the evening or with a glass of champagne in hand, it's a real insight into the Festival's hidden details.
