Vogue UK January 2013 | Dior in Vogue: the archive

Vogue UK January 2013, Dior in Vogue: the archive, Kate Upton, Alasdair McLellan

Dior in Vogue: the archive is presented alongside the Raf Simons feature which can only be found in the digital edition of Vogue UK January 2013. The grandeur amounts of fabric and exquisite French elegance as seen through the years since 1946, collated in the pages of Vogue. See designs from the likes of Christian Dior himself to Gianfranco Ferré, Marc Bohan, and John Galliano; modelled by Jean Shrimpton, Jane Birkin, and Linda Evangelista among many others; and shot by photographers including Irving Penn, Craig McDean, David Bailey, and Patrick Demarchelier to name a few.

These models of yesteryear bring me back to the cover of Vogue UK January 2013, which features Kate Upton in a demure Alaîa dress shot by Alasdair McLellan. As you would have already known, there are two camps: one for Kate Upton’s ‘refreshing body image’ in high fashion and the other against her ‘unconventional’ measurements going against what is deemed the ‘standard’. While we can’t possible predict the future shift in industry standards, one thing’s for sure; waif or curvy, these Dior creations are gorgeous either way.
