What happens when you combine fashion and art? The answer to this question can be found in the exhibition «Lady Dior As seen by», which recently ended in a gallery in Shanghai. Cult Bag Lady Dior, and part-time favorite accessory of Princess Diana, has become a source of inspiration for famous photographers, sculptors, filmmakers and artistic figures of our time. The exhibition consists of more than 50 exhibits - photographs, installations, sculptures, and even applications that focus on the famous handbag. The work is very varied and do not resemble each other. Indeed, where else can you see the Lady Dior chocolate or colored tablets of LSD?
According to the masters, they created the Lady Dior be what it once they see, and frankly, some of the exhibits were quite strange. And even explain who the artists were given about their work, did not help to reveal the essence of their audience. Well, let's rely on their own fantasy and imagination, because art - a subjective thing.
The work of the Chinese artist Wen Fang called "vice". Apparently, in their handbags lovely ladies can wear not just lipstick and powder box.

Well, chocolate can do anything, and did not give any explanation. All well and enjoy.

They are my old friends from the group "Hollywood Undead" (Hollywood undead - this translation gives us Wikipedia). They not care what people think about them by others. Very smart guys. My idea is very simple: I was shooting them against a white wall with bags in their hands. People who wanted to spit on glamor, but with such bags in their hands.
Patrick Demarchelier, "Anya"
In general, it is the expected choice for one of the greatest fashion photographers of our time: the top model and the very subject of the exhibition. Anja Rubik is covered Nude Lady Dior.

This project gave me the chance to work in the manner which I love - without any restrictions. He allowed me to feel completely free and work with my muse - Corina model. The process of the work lies in the fact that one rainy the Los Angeles Sunday, we just had to Corina at my house and drinking champagne. At the end of the evening we watched all the pictures, and this is just a photo shocked us. It was such an amazing, sexy, exciting and challenging.

Tim Walker, "The image of Dior"
The objective of any fashion photographer - make a person dream. By creating this collage, I wanted the viewer to imagine yourself in the empty space between the hat, boots and Lady Dior.
Courtney Roy, "You belong to me"
I liked to fake his own death. The idea of these images came to me when I thought about the iconic Lady Dior status in our society. Thus was born the character - a woman obsessed with the idea to maintain its position even after death.
