What is the Vogue 100, you ask? Well, 100 women around the US who Vogue finds intriguing and represents the modern day Vogue woman. Vogue 100 women are tastemakers, stylemakers, and influencers living the Vogue lifestyle; they are usually actively involved in the arts, fashion, and of course, philanthropy. Vogue 100 members are asked to host Vogue events throughout the country, and invite their friends. Monthly “care packages” are sent to the ladies containing handbags, accessories, beauty products, and even clothing from the Vogue closet. The Vogue 100 women do change from year to year (as some women fall in and out of vogue .)
Dior’s Art of the Dress presentation has been touring the country — this BH party was held in November — but the tour also just made a debut at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York this week (and was hosted by Susan Fales Hill). A vintage curated flown in from Chicago explained how Christian Dior’s original threads in fashion — and those of Dior’s successor Yves Saint Laurent in the 50s — have been continuously reinvented by the house up through John Galliano‘s tenure and even after his termination last spring (the new collections are being designed in-house while Dior is finding a permanent replacement since his gaff at a New York bar last February).
A slide show of hallmark Dior micro-trends can be seen in our slideshow above.
