All I want for Christmas is… Dior Couture by Demarchelier.

Dior Couture by Patrick Demarchelier
The book published by Rizzoli will be released on 6 December 2011, but can be pre-ordered on amazon right now. Today I’m celebrating the release with a few beautiful images and wondering which ones I will find in the book when I get my hands on this treasure.

  1. The quote by Demarchelier is so beautiful: fashion must inspire, fashion help people dreaming...love it! And this book looks incredible. I've alwyas thought that Dior gowns are amongst the most theatrical and elegant, and this book seems to be a great celebration of this maison.

    BTW, loved your comfort/fashion formula...you included all the perfect elements!

  14. This book is also on my wish list. It makes me sad that Galliano is no longer at Dior, but the images I have seen from the book so far are so striking, it's the perfect investment for the coffee table :-))
