Dior Golden Winter Holiday Color Collection 2013

The holiday collections just keep coming in! This time the latest from Dior—a decadent collection of jewel tones and metallic with some of the most gorgeous packaging of the season.

 

The Dior Golden Winter Holiday Color Collection is inspired by Versailles at the heart of winter. The collection is based around shades of pink and gold, which have been among the most emblematic codes of the House of Dior since the first couture collection in 1947. Today, the tradition continues with Raf Simons, whose current creations feature gorgeous combinations of pink and gold.

The History of Dior and Versailles:
The ultimate refinement of Versailles court art de vivre and the castle’s magnificent adornments deeply influenced Christian Dior’s creations both in aesthetics and structure. Dior was particularly influenced by the golden era of Versailles fashion, which celebrated femininity with its ornate fabrics and structured dresses that enhanced the waist. This holiday, the splendor of Versailles shines on in the Dior makeup collection, which draws inspiration from images of the iconic palace and its gardens covered in snow.

The Look:
Eyes are dressed in sparkling hues of white, yellow and rose golds while lips are highlighted in sparkling fuchsia, vibrant red, and a rich burgundy. Nails complete the look in rosy taupe, red and golden plum.

Star Product: Diorific Jewel Manicure Duo
Inspired by the magnificent adornments of Versailles, the Diorific Jewel Manicure Duo combines two versions of Diorific Vernis: a sumptuous gold lacquer to apply as a base and luminous crystal micro-pearls to sprinkle on top for a three-dimensional result.
