Dior Fall 2013 Campaign at Opéra Garnier in Paris Dior Fall 2013 Campaign Opéra Garnier in Paris 2 Dior Fall 2013 Campaign at Opéra Garnier in Paris 1

The stunning images above are from the Christian Dior AW 2013 campaign shot by Willy Vanderperre at the Opéra Garnier in Paris. Hands down this has to be one of my favorite ad campaigns of the year! The gorgeous models are seen wandering the gilded hallways of the storied Opéra Garnier at night. They seem caught somewhere between fantasy and reality in their posh cocktail dresses and Dior Bar suits. The soft hair, red lips, and the ladylike silhouettes combined with the opulent surroundings is pure Dior… I like how the girls look as if they have been photographed in motion, instead of the usual, static “posed” looks that most campaigns have. I particularly love the black and white image above as it is both deeply luxurious and hauntingly beautiful.

Speaking of inspiring ad campaigns, the September glossies have hit my mailbox and I couldn’t be more excited! The start of a new fashion season is always filled with great anticipation, but there is nothing like the return of the fall collections. I dream of filling my closet with rich hues, plush fabrics, and boots, lots of stack-heeled boots! I’m in the mood for everyday wardrobe basics with a twist: a chic sweatshirt, a sleek sheath dress, a slouchy moto jacket, lace-up heels, plus edgy extras to revamp my look.

Are you excited for fall? What’s on your fashion wishlist?
