Dior’s State of Gold

Dior’s State of Gold! Dior Creative and Image Director, Peter Philips is tweaking the traditional gold and red colour story with iconic grey for a sultry and luxurious holiday makeup collection. He adds a sheen of platinum with a hint of fuchsia to give the look a youthful energy. You’ll find that in the Dior Vernis shades as well: deep purple, copper and grey-green. It is quintessentially French and beautifully done.

Here is the official press release description: “Outside, the electric night pulses to a festive beat. Drawn to the lure of the city lights, a woman with a magnetic aura elegantly radiates a newfound glow and she climbs the step to a chic holiday party.” Philips has brought incredible innovation and unexpected colour pairings during his short tenure at Dior so far. He’s stayed true to the Dior heritage, but given the makeup a fresh turn. I’m so impressed with what he’s done. A friend of mine was a beauty director in Paris for many years and she says he is the nicest makeup artist. He always answers questions backstage after a fashion show and is available for interviews.

You’ll notice that lipsticks are reinvented for holiday 2015. Most Christmas collections feature high-shine lipsticks, but Philips decided to make his matte. I think it makes them much more wearable for a wider range of women. Peter calls is a “Kiss of Velvet”.

    This collection wins for me. I’ve looked at all the collections, studied all the reviews, and if I had an award for ‘best in show’, i’d give it to Dior for this collection!
