Going to Paris to be photographed on the rooftop of no other than Le Printemps in nothing else but Dior right before seeing Marion Cotillard unveil the new Christmas windows really does sound like a fairytale, no? I mean it is truly special to have a rack full of clothes from one of the most iconic French fashion houses ready for you to choose from. I went straight back to reality when I found out I run out of battery right before the gorgeous Marion Cotillard showed up to cut the ribbon and unveil the beautiful windows. However I got saved just in time by a fairy who was so kind to buy me a new battery that lasted for about 20 minutes. Just about long enough to snap miss Cotillard and all the displays.
Hundreds of people were there to have a first look at the whimsical windows filled with puppets dressed in mini Dior dresses, replicas of Dior designs from the house’s New Look collection in 1947 to the creations designed by the new creative director, Raf Simons. Dior also created a limited edition collection of shoes, bags, scarves, jewelry and even snowglobes, exclusively available at Le Printemps during the Christmas period.
