In 1947 an important chapter was written in the world of fashion. Christian Dior presented his first Haute Couture collection, and he did it surrounded by the divas of the moment, such as Rita Hayworth or Vivien Leigh, who were some of the privileged ones who were impacted by a new style: the New Look. Today at the Haute Couture fashion show, Maria Grazia Chiuri has reinterpreted it with looks two-piece with fitted waists and skirts with a certain volume and avant-garde jackets with puff sleeves.
