The beauty look Pat McGrath and Guido Palau created for Dior was breathtaking. In this video interview Guido Palau said the hair look was inspired by Jean Seaberg, Janet Leigh and iconic actresses of today like Anne Hathaway.

Makeup artist Pat McGrath did a stunning red jeweled mouths on all the models which must have taken hours to do. As she explains, “the girls were coming out of a garden and Raf said he wanted the girls to look like flowers in a modern way.  We did a shimmer on top of the eyes.  Really it was about the burnt orange, pinks and rose colored encrusted mouths“. The Dior show was beyond beautiful as actress Jessica Alba admitted after the show “it was beautiful, sexy and modern”.

Backstage at the shoot Mila explained why she wanted to work with the house of Dior for a second season.

What attracted me to Dior I think was the idea of being a part of a lineage that is so admired and looked up to,” she said. “They’re very consistant with their designs; you see a Dior dress, you know it’s a Dior dress. They’re very classic, very consistent, really elegant and really beautiful.

The 28-year-old also adores photographer Mario Sorrenti, who shot her for the campaign – which was styled by Carine Roitfeld.

Mario is one of the best photographers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, ever,” she said. “There’s a sense that’s very organic, and he captures really beautiful moments. He’s an amazing photographer.

In Paris the first Dior Couture show without designer John Galliano was presented at the Rodin Museum to mostly negative, biting reviews. This was the first collection by studio director Bill Gaytten, a studio assistant who came to Dior in 1999 with John Galliano. Sidney Toledano, the chief executive of Dior and Bernard Arnault, the chairman of LVMH were testing Mr. Gaytten for the role of creative director of Dior. They recently named Bill Gaytten the creative director of the Galliano brand.

John Galliano’s shoes are not easy to fill. Even with the the entire Galliano creative team in place – makeup artist Pat McGrath, hairstylist Orlando Pita, millner Steven Jones and Jeremy Healy on music this Dior Couture collection ‘failed to launch‘ according to many press reports including the New York Times. Watch the fashion video and read the press reviews.

Designer John Galliano will attend his trial this week in Paris on Wednesday, June 22nd at 2PM and the case will be heard by three judges. The scene is expected to be a media circus as the court is open to the public and anyone can attend. According to published reports on British Vogue’s website today the initial hearing is likely to last between four and five hours with witnesses from both sides to be heard.
