Christian Dior, Happy Birthday!, Born January 21st; 1905-1957

Christian Dior

A short but powerful film presence belonged to this Haute Couture Designer; with more than 20 credits over the course of just 15 years in our world-wide movieland; 1 Academy Award nomination for Stazione Termini (Indiscretion of an American Wife), 1953 (nomination came in 1955). Dior provided dresses and gowns for some of the most cultured, beautiful and charming actresses (Cyd Charisse-glamor herself, Falling in love again-Marlene Dietrich, Olivia de Havilland-as elegant and lively as her name and Myrna Loy she-of-supreme sophistication) of his day and working for a motley crew of directors (Vittorio De Sica,  Alfred Hitchcock, Julien Duvivier, Norman Krasna and René Clair) during his short silver-screen career.
