The 10 Coolest Quotes Of Christian Dior

Christian-Dior-2

J’adore Dior!

And you will two after reading these fabulous insights from the big bad Grandfather of bold & ultra feminine silhouettes. Dior’s first Collection, Correlle, translates into “Circle of Flower Petals”; which is exactly what Dior’s delicious gowns resembled. Ladies went wild for Dior’s stunning designs, which made the wearer resemble a breathing bloom and went down in history as the ‘New Look’.

Hilariously, the notoriously understated Coco Chanel was so horrified by Dior’s elaborate and admittedly constraining creations that she came out of retirement just to him down. A dreamy and delightful man who died young, and quite suddenly, Christian Dior often waxed poetic about life’s little pleasures, joy, and beauty.

Here are Christian Dior’s 10 best quotes.

Marina Recap: World Cup & Wedding Whirl

recap

Hopped off the plane from LAX with a dream and a leather jacket… and snatched a couple winks of sleep before waking up at the crack of dawn (9AM) before zooming straight to Stylehaüs! My business is my baby (sorry Ben) so no matter how much fun I’m having on a trip, returning home is a welcome relief. With all the exciting changes and projects looming in the upcoming months, there’s little time to loaf around. And I’m ok with that. Here are some highlights of last week’s whirlwind of friends and family!

Work Hard Play Hard Need Nap

After landing in NYC late the night before, I worked a full but super productive day at stylehaüs, then made it to xiv for my good friend Dean May’s birthday.

It was a classic Summer white party and I had an amazing time grooving in the DJ booth with Paul Oakenfold, a great artist and one of Ben’s good friends.

The spot was packed with gorgeous Hollywood types and everyone got super into sets from Oakenfold and the EC Twins.

I wore: a Cosabella bra, David Lerner white cotton tank top, white Superfine jeans, and Nike wedges.

I’ve got the blues… The leather jacket blues.

All #summer really means for us at @stylehausla is lighter colored leather

I wore: Topshop jeans, Rag & Bone booties, and two jackets from stylehaus. The blue and white floral print on the left is VEDA, and blue knitted leather jacket on the right is by Price Upon Request.

Blue Hat At Bar Marmont

Ben and I grabbed dinner and drinks at the ever-glam Bar Marmont for some much needed mushy couple time.

Hot Dog Before Julio

marna5

Ben and I watched the World Cup in style at our friend’s new place in the Hills. As much as I love tequila, I was loving those hot dogs more.

I wore: Benjamin J beige tank top, Topshop black jeans, and trusty Converse. 

USA USA USA YAY

Not to be superstitious, but I swear my photos are lucky. The shot was taken literally seconds before USA scored a crucial goal. How cute are Ben and his friend in their matching pink button ups? I was calling them the Pink Gents all day.

View From The Top

When I say a house is amazing, that house is freakin phenomenal. Here I am accompanied by Sarah making the most of a beautiful view before Sunset. Her white crochet dress is to die for.

PhotoBooth For Life

marina2

Photobooths are like amazing toys for adults. Like grown up legos. If we’re hanging out and I see a photobooth available, you know we’ll be taking some weird and wonderful pictures.

Stanford Stadium

6.30

After a wonderful week, Ben and I took a quick trip to Stanford for his sister’s wedding. In a stroke of brilliance that my bridezilla self may or may not slightly envy, his sister held her rehearsal dinner at Stanford Stadium, where she met her husband. I can’t even compete. But I’ll try.

I wore: Balenciaga suspender harem pants, Christian Dior Jazz shoes, Pierre Hardy purse, and vintage striped top. 

The Family Stone/Kusin

My future in-laws are a damn good-looking crowd. How dapper is Ben? The only one not thrilled is that baby, who looks ready for a nap .

10 Trendiest Tea Length Skirt Ensembles

This Season’s Tea Length Skirt trend is the most interesting thing to happen to tea since our rowdy American forefathers incited a war by chucking it overboard.

The proper but never prissy cut lends sophistication to petite women and gamine charm to lengthy ladies while cleverly disguising anything remotely resembling cellulite. Luminaries such as Prabal Gurung, Christian Dior, and Tracy Reese debuted darling tea length ensembles during Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion week. Adapting a tea length skirt to your wardrobe is simple! During sweltering Summer months, pair with a crop top and sandals. When Autumn rolls through, just toss some tights and boots underneath the tea length skirt and you’re good to go.

10 Trendiest Tea Length Skirt Ensembles

1. The Classy Carrie Bradshaw

tea 1

This Georges Hobeika Couture Spring 2014 crystal encrusted crop top and pale pink tea length skirt gives a more girly approach. The soft feel to it allows it to become versatile. You could wear this to a Sunday afternoon tea party or the next Hollywood gathering.

2. The Perfectionist Pin Up

tea 2

Red screams retro! This three quarter sleeved cream sweater top with a  flowy red skirt and nude pumps paired with your favorite red lipstick will really help you embrace 60’s glam.

3. The Regal Rebel

tea 3

This white blouse with cut outs on the sleeves and a black tea length skirt with clear panels on the bottom paired with black lace heels totally breaks the rules of the tea length skirt but in an awesome and daring way! It still gives that “lady like” look with a little more sex appeal.

4. The Immaculate It Girl

tea 5

A black off the shoulder top paired with a full, blue, floral tea length skirt with black stripy heels is a way to catch the eye of any fashionista. Having fun with patterns in these skirts is what makes them so unique.

5. The Wondrous Waif

tea 7

This is the perfect way to show off a tea-length skirt out on the street. The casual striped crop top and boot heels make it seem effortless yet staying chic. Add in a Chanel bag and you’re set.

6. The Princess In Waiting

tea 4

Cream on cream may not sound like the best combination, but by wearing two slightly different shades of the color helps it come together perfectly. The lace in the skirt gives it the romantic look that everyone craves.

7. She’s With The Band

tea 8

The leather skirt is a really cool way to show off this style. It has the rocker feel and can transfer from a day of shopping to a night out at the club. Adding the lace crop top and nude heels softens this look too.

8. The Demure Debutante

tea 9

For a business casual look, pairing a pastel colored tea length skirt with a nice blouse creates the perfect look to wear to your next meeting. Adding a chunky necklace also adds to this professional look.

9. The Jaunty Jetsetter

tea 6

This Céline Paris Top with a more fitted plaid tea length skirt gives the mature/ well traveled look. It’s perfect to wear on your next trip to France.

10. The Sweetest Starlet

tea 10

This look comes straight from TopShop. Being one of the trendiest places to shop, it’s no wonder tea length skirts are sold here in all colors, patterns and textures! This classic black crop top and white skirt is just the right look for shopping till you drop.

Paris Fashion Week always brings forth beautiful, couture designs from some of the world’s most classic and renown designers, and  the Fall/Winter 2013 Christian Dior show was no exception as Raf Simons delivered his successful second ready-to-wear collection. Simons created a runway set inspired by pop art as well as surrealism, even featuring a collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation to incorporate the Pop artist’s drawings of shoes, butterflies, and images of women embroidered onto handbags and dresses. The looks were intended to be modern enough to wear for every day, but also special and unique pieces of wearable art for special events. Simons played with patterns such as houndstooth in many of his looks, and incorporated a pop-art inspired floral pattern that is sure to be a notable trend in the upcoming months. In particular, the F/W 2013 Dior collection featured beautiful feminine dresses, ruffles, and even a leather dress that caught our eye! As Dior was the go-to for the best-dressed celebrities in Hollywood this awards season, this collection will be the go-to for the best dressed women around the world come fall!

French-born designer Christian Dior is regarded as one of the most influential names in fashion and the impression he created in the fashion world in the 1950s has allowed Dior to remain one of the most prominent brands in luxury fashion and Haute Couture today. For Throwback Thursday, we decided to dig through some archives of one of our favorite designers and these vintage advertisements remind us how truly classic and elegant Christian Dior’s style is. To this day, Dior has remained true to its origins, and consistently produces timeless pieces full of character, style, and charisma. In particular, Christian Dior is regarded as being the innovator behind the, “A-Line” skirt trend, a style that has continued to evolve and fill modern-day runways and street style looks. A term first used by Dior as the label for his collection in the spring of 1955, the A-Line skirt is fitted at the hips and gradually widens towards the hem, giving the impression in the shape of a capital letter “A”. Dior’s A-Line collection became “the most wanted silhouette in Paris”, and a fingertip-length flared jacket worn over a dress with a very full, pleated skirt became Dior’s signature look at the time. A-Line skirts continue to be a popular style today, whether for the office or a more formal night out, they are a classic, feminine, go-to piece when looking for a traditional-yet-stylish pairing to complement a blouse. From vintage 1950s ads to the 2013 runways, Christian Dior reminds us that iconic designs are timeless, and true fashion never goes out of style.
