LIFE Magazine, ‘Grey Dior Outside Louvre Metro’


By Mark Shaw
Paris, France. 1957
Estate embossed digital archival print
Limited Edition of 30
Paper size 17h x 11w inches

This image of a model wearing a grey Dior suit outside the Louvre Metro station was photographed by Mark Shaw in Paris, 1957, for LIFE magazine’s September article “A Bright Young Look in Paris”. The ‘Palais de Glace’ dress was part of Dior’s Spring/Summer 1957 Collection ‘Libre line’. Through his photography, Shaw aimed to redefine the way in which haute couture of the 1950s and ‘60s was portrayed. Rejecting the typical images of stiff, joyless posed bodies, he was determined to capture the energy and movement of Dior through his American realism.
