by Natasha Silva-Jelly

In the immortal words of the late great couturier Christian Dior: “I dream of making women not only more beautiful but also happier.”  Out today, Dior: New Looks is a beautiful photographic tome that certainly made us at The Daily smile when it hit the desk. Charting the history of the iconic French house—from Dior’s debut “New Look” collection in 1947, through to influential creations by successors, Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, and Raf Simons (who stepped down from his post as artistic director last month, leaving the brand without a man)—the book is a visual feast through the lens of the world’s best photographers, from Richard Avedon, Helmut Newtown, and Bruce Weber, through to Mario Testino, Mert Alas, and Marcus Piggott and Inez and Vinoodh. But enough of the words, it’s all about the images…
