The house of Dior is one of the most storied couture houses in the world of fashion, famous for its intricate and lavish designs, its signature “New Look” silhouettes, and its penchant for staying ahead of the curve. Now, the house of Dior has come together with renowned fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier on Dior Couture, a portfolio that chronicles some of the most incredible haute couture gowns ever seen. The book allows the reader to take a visual journey through the history of the house, beginning with the designs of Christian Dior himself, through the years of Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Bohan, and finishing with John Galliano. Each piece has been shot in an equally glamorous location, from Times Square in New York to the Paris Opera House, on an equally stunning model—Gisele Bundchen, Karlie Kloss, Sasha Pivovarova, and Magdalena Frackowiak all make an appearance. Dior Couture ($68.94) is available for pre-order now at Amazon.com, ahead of its December 6 launch date. In the meantime, however, click inside for a first look.
