The Gulf News reported that Bella Hadid, the Face and Brand Ambassador for Dior Beauty was welcomed by  bloggers, reporters media and fashionistas when she arrived the Dubai Mall's Fashion Catwalk Atrium,  venue of the Dior: Art of Color Exhibition in her first visit to the UAE. Her elder sister Gigi came first for a New Year’s Eve party to ring in 2015 and again in October, 2016, for her TommyXGigi collection showcase.

"This exhibition is about the book, and the book is an homage to Dior and beauty, and the incredible work created."

Dior: The Art of Color edited by Marc Ascoli and Jerry Stafford and photographed by Richard Burbridge.

Dior, The Art of Color is a retrospective of the long and dynamic history the house of Dior shares with make-up.

Dior Beauty was launched in 1967, when Christian Dior asked Serge Lutens to create a make-up line. The multi-talented Lutens poured all of his experience as a hair stylist, photographer and make-up artist into the project, going on to shoot some of the iconic images that now grace the book’s pages.

Control of the department then passed to make-up artist and photographer Tyen, who was made creative director of cosmetics in 1981.

Speaking about his predessors, Philips explains: "The work they did is just fantastic. I have only been at Dior for three years, so I feel I have a small role in this book. But we needed more pages, so I did a shoot and made 12 images"

The book’s cover is an image created by Serge Luton when he first joined Dior in the 1960s.

Philips says: "Although some of the images are now over 40 years old, they are still very fresh and very daring. And that’s why we produced this book."
