Dior Illustrated - Rene Gruau & The Line of Beauty @ Somerset House

If you haven't already, then you must try to see the Rene Gruau exhibition at Somerset House before it closes on Sunday. The exhibition is a wonderful celebration of the iconic illustrators work, showcasing a vast selection of his original pieces, including the Dior perfume campaigns. These gorgeous illustrations are accompanied by Vintage Dior perfume bottles as well as a small collection of Haute Couture dresses from the New Look period through to Galliano. All in one die for!
