The Lady Dior bag has come a long, long way from when it was first presented to Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1995 whose adoration for the bag propelled it to the status of one of fashion’s most iconic accessories. Rectangular and structured, the bag has become a perfect canvas for artists of various generations and nations to paint their imagination onto it. Being reinvented again and again, the Lady Dior, however, doesn’t falter when it comes to how, as a fashion accessory, it defines what it means to be a lady.
Just like the woman of today, Lady Dior is an ode to plural femininity, this modern manifesto is a match for every personality. It is an emblem of a naturally sophisticated, self-assured, ageless, creative and free-spirited attitude. Now, we are all invited to explore the iconic bag that is Lady Dior once again, this time through the lenses of photographer Joan Braun. Titled “What’s Lady like?,” this series of images portray modern icons of femininity, all friends of the House who pose with their favourite Lady Dior, whether a classic design, a colorful version or one inspired by works of art, worn cross-body or held in the hand. They are artists, models, actresses, dancers, singers – sometimes all of these at once – influential, committed and captivating. Their names are Ruth Bell, Angelababy, Adesuwa Aighewi, Sun Yihan, Anne Nakamura, Wang Likun, Kat Graham, Wanwan Lei, Olympia of Greece, Lineisy Montero, Alisha Nesvat, Evelyn Nagy, Sara Grace Wallerstedt…one by one, they express their singular personalities, their multifaceted sensitivity and their definition(s) of what it means to be “ladylike” – that unique combination of audacity and elegance.
