For her second season campaign for Christian Dior, artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri has once again put the spotlight on feminism and femininity. Nine models strike a pose for the Fall-Winter 2017-18 collection which focuses on contrasts and shades of blue.
Is Dior creating its own army of in-demand models with a strong personality and style, just like Olivier Rousteing did at Balmain? We will have to wait for future seasons to find out, but it's true that Maria Grazia Chiuri has signed up not one or two but nine high-profile models for Dior's Fall-Winter 2017 campaign.
Ruth Bell, who featured in the campaign for Maria Grazia Chiuri's very first collection for Dior, is back again for F/W 2017. She's accompanied by Grace Hartzel, Selena Forrest, Jing Wen, Adwoa Aboah, Fernanda Ly, Ellen Rosa, Aira Ferreira and Camille Hurel.
Arms crossed, hands in pockets or hanging down by their sides, the faces of this new collection are staring down the lens with steely determination. Each of the shots for the campaign reveals the unique personality of each of these women and their rock-steady self-confidence.
Dior's artistic director has once again entrusted her campaign to the French photographer Brigitte Lacombe, who has captured the feeling of solidarity between these individuals from different backgrounds.
For Spring-Summer 2017, Dior chose Ruth Bell and her sister May Bell, who were photographed by Brigitte Lacombe.
