Dior Dismisses Galliano and Introduces the New Face of Miss Dior Cherie: Natalie Portman

Dior has had quite a week! After a video circulated on Monday where apparently an inebriated John Galliano said, “I love Hitler”, the designer was denounced by Dior ambassador Natalie Portman and later fired by Christian Dior.

Today the couturier, finally spoke out and said, “Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologize for my behavior in causing any offence.” Well good luck fixing this mess Galliano! It’s such a tragedy that someone capable of so much beauty can be so ugly.

But the House must go on and I’m excited to share Dior’s new campaign starring Natalie Portman as the new face of Miss Dior Cherie! Notice in the video the bow-tie that a very seductive Portman (baby-bump free) takes from the gentleman is the headband used in the print campaign. Tres chic!

And of course they didn’t forget the swan!

While I love to accessorize and get creative with my outfit choices (and makeup), there is something to be said about owning really great, quality basics that can be worn on repeat to build a variety of looks and outfits or be worn alone and look effortlessly chic.

A warm coat that fits and is made well, will go a long way in your wardrobe. I bought mine last year from Marc by Marc Jacobs (#1) and it still looks brand new.  Red has been huge this season and the shade I chose is a really happy one that works with my skin tone. No matter how disheveled I am, this coat instantly brightens me up and makes me look considerably more put together.

To compliment my coat, I opted for a crisp, white beanie from D&Y (#2). What I love about this knit is that it’s not too tight like a snowboarder hat or too big like an oversized beanie and I it’s light enough that I can carry it over into Spring.  For those really bitter cold days, I turn to my Kaldi Arctic Hat from 66 North –the Icelandic brand designed to deal with extreme weather conditions. And if it’s good enough to keep Icelanders warm, then it can handle this New Yorker. And the lining is
