If you are in love with vintage fashion or better, if you love Dior haute-couture, you will surely enjoy Mark Shaw's photographs in Rizzoli's newly released book, "Dior Glamour", which covers the alluring and divine decade of the luxurious brand, from 1952 to 1962. The American photographer,who worked for Life magazine during that time, captured unique shots of debutantes, models, actresses and socialites wearing gorgeous ballgowns, stylish suits and charming haute-couture. It's a visual delight! With some of the first photographs ever shot in color, the book is a quest within a remarkable and creative era of Paris's top couturier Christian Dior.
