I teased you with Parts 1 and 2 of the new J’adore Dior commercial and here it is in its full entirety. It was launched to the world in Paris just yesterday but due to some technical glitches, I’m only getting it today. Still, do watch it and keep an eye on the backstage scenes.
Who else can you spot besides Charlize Theron ;) Oh and keep your eye on some of the dresses. Sublime I tell you!
The new J’adore commercial was filmed in the Galerie des Glaces or Hall of Mirrors at Versailles Palace by Jean-Jacques Annaud. The commercial may be new, but I don’t think Dior is tinkering with their signature fragrance in their signature bottle. J’adore is a bit of a strong floral fragrance, so I personally feel its not a young lady scent, the way Miss Dior Cherie is intended to be. Its a matured scent for a matured lady who has seen something of life and the world and is able to appreciate what she has ;)
The by now classic J’adore fragrance bottle was inspired by an amphora and the figure 8 dresses designed by Mr. Christian Dior – small waistlines and full skirts. Notice in the video that Charlize Theron is fitted into a gold lame dress that looks just like the bottle – high neckline and gold threads. I think her silhouette looks like the the bottle too. Erm… sans the bulbous bit at the bottom.
If Dior continues making dresses the way Mr. Christian Dior did before, I think I, with my hippy hips would have no problems fitting into one of his creations. Well, except for the wasp waistline which I do not possess :P
If you’d like to read more about what goes on behind the J’adore fragrance and the J’adore film, do head over to this mini site and enjoy. I did ;)
p/s Did you spot Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe backstage at the Dior show? They were all fans of Christian Dior and I love how these classic Hollywood icons were given a nod in this short film :D I also think I spotted Natalie Portman (new face of Dior) and maybe one or two more familiar faces but with my celebrity blindness, I can’t be certain :P
