Yesterday evening, at the Oscars, the limelight shone on Dior as Jennifer Lawrence was awarded Best Actress, and Charlize Theron set her dress atwirl onstage. Between Dior and the actresses, the love story continues.
The only thing missing from her already-impressive collection of prizes was the famous golden statuette. And, having already been honored with a Golden Globe and a SAG award, at the age of only twenty-two, Jennifer Lawrence has just won the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in the film Silver Linings Playbook . And it was in Dior that she lit up the stage of the Dolby Theatre of Los Angeles. The new face of the Miss Dior bag (as DiorMag informed you at the week-end) had chosen a gown from the most recent haute couture collection by Raf Simons for the occasion - a strapless dress, whose cinched waist gushes into a great silk corolla. A flower-woman, literally, resplendent in pink.
Under the Los Angeles sun, the house of Dior was gloriously represented by its muses in full bloom. For actress Charlize Theron the ceremony heralded her return on the scene after a long absence from the red carpet. And also the opportunity to be celebrated in Dior.
The J'adore perfume muse was wearing a strapless dress of silk crêpe, embellished with a peplum embroidered in crystal and beads. It was a design that traced a direct from the famous Bar jacket, whose allure defined a whole "New Look" ! On the stage, the actress surprised the audience when she revealed her dancing skills during a waltz with the actor Channing Tatum. Wearing a second creation from the house, Charlize Theron made both heads and the ruffles of her pale pink dress turn to the rhythm of the song The Way You Look Tonight .
Christian Dior used to say that he wanted to make women not only beautiful but happy, too. And, yesterday evening in Hollywood, the house muses paid their own homage to the couturier. He would have been proud to hear Jennifer Lawrence joyfully declare "Thank you to the women. You are so magnificent and so inspiring" , because it's exactly what he always thought himself.
