Just last month it was reported Chanel will host its annual Croisière presentation at the Château de Versailles on May 14, and now the prestigious location, which is situated near Paris, provides the setting for a dreamlike fashion video by Dior.

The short film was shot by Dutch fashion photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, known for their work with labels including Gucci, Chloé and Balenciaga. It features music by Depeche Mode.

The fantastical video stars models Melissa Stasiuk, Xiao Wen Ju and Daria Strokous — with the Strokous exploring the castle’s deserted Galerie des Glaces.

Dior has a long history with the Château de Versailles, with former creative director John Galliano using the venue to host Dior’s 60th anniversary couture show back in 2007. — AFP RELAXNEWS
