Marion Cotillard, Lady Dior & Lady Grey

 -The Dior saga comes to an end with Chapter 4, Lady Grey: this final video is a masterpiece to finish off this gigantic campaign. Chapter 1 was good, but the others just seemed clumsy, the camera work and storylines were a bit weak. This one, however, is in a very simple way, stunning!
The video is directed by John Cameron Mitchell - one of my favourite directors (he directed Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus) and stars two great actors - Marion Cottilard and Ian McKellen (who I worship ever since seeing him in Waiting For Godot last easter). And all backed by John Galliano of course, what an overwhelmingly brilliant collaboration!

There's a lot to say about this video - but I think it's probably best just to enjoy the photography and the general glamour, style and esthetic of it.
Dior at its best, showing off the heritage of over half a century's worth of glamour and style. 

Not a fan of the bag (for those interested - it's a mere €1650) but the campaign is worth a moment of everybody's attention!
