Dior’s Christmas makeup collection Grand Bal takes its inspiration in the grandeur and glamour of ball dance.

The tone refers to both extravagant parties in Mr Dior’s childhood home as well as Parisian balls in the roaring 1920s. “Now that Cinderella’s fairy godmother no longer exists, the couturier must be the magician”, Christian Dior once said.

 

Here are some of the highlights from the look.
