Backstage with Dior’s California Cowgirls


For her first Dior Cruise showing, Maria Grazia Chiuri settled on a casual, rustic aesthetic inspired by the runway’s desert venue. Fittingly, Dior Makeup’s creative director Peter Philips chose a beauty look that reflect the au-natural, but flawless setting. He wanted to recreate the rugged radiance of a day spent outside under the California sun. This Calabasas-country vibe married with Dior’s storied classicism echoed throughout the whole collection—which included hats emblazoned with Georgia O’Keefe-inspired graphics and embroidery mimicking French cave paintings.

In a statement, Philips said that the beauty look, like the accessories, was inspired by the American West. “I wanted to use the warm, organic, and earthy tones of the desert, just like in Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings. I wanted a natural but slightly unpolished ‘warm glow’ effect, the way you look after physical activity. I used earthy colors so the girls looked like they had spent an afternoon in the sun and the wind.”

To achieve this look, the makeup pro set off each model’s complexion, using a rust-colored Dior lipstick as blush. Philips then brought a flush of sun-imbued contrast to eyes with a red-brick shadow and no mascara. He finished off the look with an unembellished lip, using only Dior Addict Lip Sugar Scrub to give a slight polish and sheen. On the runway, hairstylist Guido Palau tied back long hair in a loose and easy plait.
