Random Acts of Inspiration
The other day I’d hit a bit of a rough patch when my wonderful friend Marco Souza—the most amazing makeup assistant in the world—stopped by holding a gloriously cheerful bouquet of flowers and this book, Backstage Dior.
I’m so grateful to Marco and John Galliano for unwittingly lifting me out of my funk, that Umami burger didn’t hurt either. Oh what a miraculously effective wonder of unsolicited distraction!
Thank you Roxanne Lowitt for capturing these brilliant stolen moments. For the delicious unguarded glimpses into a world where modern muses teeter on platform shoes, drift in clouds of ethereal fabrics while wearing foot long gold eyelashes and candy floss hair.
I draw comfort from knowing this book can be a respite from those all too “real life” moments. To remind me that there is a place all be it fleeting, where fact and fiction can coexist and where the past collides with the future into one carefully constructed enchanted vision of beauty.
A fun filled carnival ride for your eyes, overflowing with fantastical characters concocted by the mind of a true fashion genius and his insanely talented cohorts. Backstage Dior is pure joy and a reminder to all of us to dream, dream, dream and if we’re lucky to never wake up.
