Everyone with an ISP, social media account, and passing interest in fashion has already weighed in on Raf Simons' Dior debut at Paris Couture Week. Like every conversation on the Internet, the responses ranged from "eeeee!" to "hmmm…" to "meh" to "ngwioganbnjgbanrkjgjk!?!?!"

Raf Simons Does Away With Limbs for His Fall 2012 Campaign

If I were appointed head designer of Dior, one of the oldest and most beloved couture houses in the world, after a highly-publicized yearlong search for a successor to the extremely talented and deeply disturbed John Galliano, whose scandalous dismissal from the brand polarized the fashion industry, I would probably put all my other responsibilities […]

Stefano Pilati to Armani?

I'm really, really sorry to have to do this to you. Yesterday I got to share the happy news that Raf Simons was headed to Dior, that the French label's 13-month designer drama had come to an end, that it would likely be a long time before we had to deal with a whole new […]

John Galliano Continues to Exist

The sporadically anti-Semitic John Galliano may no longer be the head designer at Dior, but he apparently continues to exist and even sometimes hang out with the same crowd and at the same kinds of places he frequented in his glory days. He was last spotted a few days ago in the Soho area of […]

Mila Kunis Models Miss Dior Handbags (Forum Buzz)

Mikael Jansson photographed Mila Kunis for the Spring 2012 Miss Dior handbags campaign. The young actress became highly covetable after her extraordinary performance in Black Swan and though she graced many fashion magazine covers in 2011, this is her first major fashion ad campaign.

Watch Marion Cotillard’s Amazing Lady Dior Video

Lady Dior's new campaign video, L.A.dy Dior, is great in pretty much every single way. Directed by James Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and starring Marion Cotillard, the mockumentary spoof takes on the sometimes alienating, frustrating work that goes into the making of fashion campaigns. In L.A.dy Dior, Cotillard is the sulky […]

Raf Simons for Dior?

Could it be? Has the moment we've been waiting for, the crowning of the new designer of Dior, finally upon us? Even though WWD is reporting that Dior is close to finalizing a deal with Jil Sander designer Raf Simons, I can't allow myself to believe. John Galliano was dismissed from Dior earlier this year, […]
