Take a Backstage Look at Dior's Fairy Tale-Inspired FW21 Collection

Maria Grazia Chiuri takes cues from ‘Little Red Riding Hood,’ ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and more.

For Dior Fall/Winter 2021, Maria Grazia Chiuri immersed herself in the world of fairy tales. Presenting a collection of opulent garments inspired by the heroines of fantasies including Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast, the designer re-contextualizes childhood nostalgia through a sartorial lens.

As captured in a collection of backstage photos by Inès Manai, details including gilded rose jewelry recall the magic of Beauty and the Beast while cocoon-like capes nod to Little Red Riding Hood. Expressing the fairy tale transformation of a doe-eyed ingenue to a full-fledged princess, a white doily lace frock is presented alongside an extravagant layered tulle gown, dyed sea foam green to azure blue ombré. Courtesy of Peter Philips, soft yet bold eye makeup in smokey black adds sophisticated edge to the collection.
