Dior "DiorShow New Look" Event & Haul

We had the opportunity to attend a Dior event at our local Dillard's department store at Short Pump Mall this past weekend. This workshop was the debut of Dior's 2012 Spring line called the "Garden Party Collection." We heard that Dior would have a very special guest on hand, their very own Stephanie Guarino, a Regional Makeup Artist who hails from Atlanta, GA, also known as one of Dior's brow gurus. So in the the name of all things beauty, we booked our appointments for a one-on-one consultation. Little did we know that we would have the pleasure of having not only Stephanie's undivided attention on our brows, but also a full face of makeup applied by Dareth Vinson, another one of Dior's wonderful Regional Makeup Artists from Charlotte, NC. Over the course of a couple of hours, we learned more than we ever could have imagined about the magical world of Dior.

In 1947, Christian Dior presented his first ever fashion show in Paris. His collection was fresh and full of color and was a hit. So much so that the Editor-In-Chief of Harper's Bazaar, Carmel Snow, commented "It's quite a revolution, dear Christian. Your dresses have such a NEW LOOK."  And so Dior's New Look has been reinvented every season since.

In the US, Dior is mainly sought after for it's cosmetics, from beautiful eye shadow palettes to glamorous mascaras and lip products to perfumes. However, in other countries Dior is highly regarded as a leading skincare company. Their skincare even ranks among the "Top 2" in Asian markets. They have facilities in France and Japan and have recently joined up with Stanford University for research and development. They have cutting edge technology and formulations that keep them in the forefront of anti-aging skincare.

Here are some photos that we snapped during the event. Doesn't all of the gorgeous makeup just make you want to drool?? The entire experience was amazing!

Sporting our new brows!
