If you’ve been hiding under a rock since October last year, Raf Simons is out as creative director at Christian Dior and the brand has yet to announce his replacement. But the show must go on and the Fall 2016 advertising campaign is here. Bringing out the big guns with photographer Steven Meisel behind the lens, Julia Nobis models the collection designed by Dior’s in-house studio directors Serge Ruffieux and Lucie Meier. Styled by Carine Roitfeld, the Aussie model strides across the studio while striking some dynamic poses — and it’s the strongest Dior campaign we’ve seen in years.
“This is a smart move for Dior. Meisel has that magic touch that brings clothes to life. No other photographer can do that. The clothes look surprisingly good,” approved GivenchyHomme the moment the campaign dropped.
