A New Book of Photos Basks in Christian Dior’s Glow

It doesn’t get much more opulent than Christian Dior gowns, past and present, photographed in atmospheric locations by Patrick Demarchelier. The second in a two-book series, Dior New Couture (Rizzoli, $115) visually translates the Dior story, from Monsieur’s first creations 47 years ago through Raf Simons’ latest designs. Demarchelier’s chosen settings range from deserted suburbs of Paris to the Palace of Versailles, while Cathy Horyn provides the introduction.
