Dior ‘Garden Party‘ Makeup Collection for Spring 2012 - "After,women, flowers are the most heavenly creation". - Christian Dior

Karlie Kloss is the face of the new DiorGarden PartyMakeup Collection for Spring 2012. The typical spring pastel shades of lilac, pink and soft greys are featured. However the gorgeous palettes are embossed with floral prints and the Minaudière is a pale pink with silver roses as the closure. We are seeing it January instead of April! What’s up with the seasonal collections sneaking up earlier and earlier?

Christian Dior grew up in Granville, on the cliffs of Normandy, in a house buffeted by strong winds, and seemingly unsuited to the creation of a garden. However, the young man’s creative strength and relentless hard work defied nature, and today one can still admire the garden in bloom and in particular, the fantastic rose garden planted with his own hands.

Christian Dior also loved the excitement of parties, and often hosted the aptly named “Grand Balls of the Century” with enchanted beauties from the Normandy coast and Paris alike. The theme of the festive garden is still alive today throughout many Dior creations. The Dior spring color collection is inspired by Dior’s fantastic garden.
