Dior’s Precious Splendor


Sparkling with harmonies borrowed from precious gemstones, this winter’s beauty offerings, as developed by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior makeup, reveal the infinite possibilities of the 5 Couleurs Precious Rocks palettes as well as the Christmas look limited-edition nail polishes and lipsticks.






Dior The Art of Color

In 1949, with the first ‘Rouge Dior’ lipsticks, the House on Avenue Montaigne saw its Beauty hisstory begin, indelibly linked to color. A striking silhouette and scarlet lips were the original, infallible weapons of the New Look and triumphant femininity.


Dior celebrates its passion for color in this book, inviting the major names behind the House Make-up to take inspiration from 12 key shades, illustrated in sumptuous photographs, and to compare them to great works of art.

An exquisite ode to color. This book presents the history of Dior cosmetics placed within contexts of fashion and art. Divided into twelve chapters (White, Silver, Nude, Pink, Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Gold, Gray, and Black) Dior: The Art of Color show- cases not only the sometimes glamorous, sometimes natural cosmetics, but also the aesthetics of color, which was the source of inspiration for so much of Dior’s creations.


The evolution of color through the ages is presented with iconic works from renowned artists and fifty years of Dior makeup and advertising campaigns- including creations from some of the greats in the field, such as Serge Lutens, Tyen, and the current head of Dior Makeup, Peter Philips-captured by master photographers such as Irving Penn, Guy Bourdin, and Richard Burbridge.

Dior It Shades

Their unique and iconic color sets four essential shades apart in the Rouge Dior range. Lets have a closer look….


Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, has reinterpreted four cult colors from Dior’s history. The House’s first crimson red is revisited in a matte version in 999 Matte. The soft coral red of 080 Red Smile references 080 Red, a fresh and bright lipstick created by Christian Dior in 1959. With its intense fuchsia, 047 Miss evokes the rose present in the Miss Dior fragrance, conceived by the couturier-perfumer in 1947. Lastly, natural and light 060 Première is an homage to the bois de rose created by Monsieur Dior who gave it the number 60.

Entitled Glowing Gardens, the suite of beauty products evoke a bouquet of light that evokes the charm and springtime luminosity of gardens in bloom, inspired by the techniques of professional makeup artists and the products they use backstage, like Lip Glow, the Colour Reviver Lip Balm.

The makeup designed by Peter Philips for this season is an alliance of pastels tones and light and luminous textures. To create a perfect glow, Dior Addict Lip Glow Pomade lends delicate shine to lips, before they are then subtly enhanced using Dior Addict Lip Glow Lilac which reacts to the skin’s pH, causing them to pinken naturally. Diorblush Glowing Gardens gives cheekbones a light pearlized shimmer to highlight the natural skin tone and mirror the eyes. Then to make eyes sparkle and optimise the freshness of the look, Dior Addict It-Lash Platine mascara lengthens and intensifies lashes, giving them an iridescent shine. Makeup has witnessed an influx of color. The shades of the 5 Couleurs Glowing Garden palette which come in sky blue, peach and pearl gray for Blue Garden or in pink, iridescent brown, anise and pale yellow for Rose Garden – are applied as a gentle cloud on the eyelids. They make reference to the colors of the garden at Granville where Christian Dior grew up, and which can be found right down to fingertips accented with Dior Vernis in blue or soft green, pink or peony red.

The colours are reminiscent – almost identically so – of the series of looks on the label’s AW14 runway, with one rich slate shade even referenced as ‘Palais Royal 403’:
