How to be a modern day Dior woman 101

By ELLE team  July 2nd, 2018

Maria Grazia Chiuri is the first female artistic director to helm the luxury house of Dior, successfully using her #woke status to bring the conversation around female empowerment and the arts into couture. And if you think artistic directors of fashion houses are floating around their Paris ateliers in day-time couture, the formidable Chiuri would like to lay those illusions to rest.

Before the Dior Haute Couture show at Paris Fashion Week, Chiuri opened the doors to her workspace via the brand’s Insta Stories, introducing the talented seamstresses and designers behind the label. It was her choice of outfit, however, that called out to us the most. With her signature hairstyle intact (hair strictly parted on the side), Chiuri was dressed in baggy jeans, a loose black shirt and — wait for it — flats. Her utilitarian outfit confirms that this wardrobe staple is not going anywhere. Hey, if it’s good for the head of Dior, it’s good enough for us.

Following in the footsteps of fashion designers like Coco Chanel and Carolina Herrera, Chiuri has a specific visual language when it comes to her personal style in public  — she usually prefers all-black, right from her make-up to her shoes, paired with statement rings and a minimal gold necklace. 

If not black, its alternative is its opposite — an all-white look.

But her off-duty look is what we’re here for.
