j'adore Dior.

A few days ago we took a trip down the coast to the pretty seaside town of Granville to visit the childhood home of Christian Dior, Les Rhumbs, which is now a museum dedicated to him and his life's work.

This summer they are holding a special exhibition entitled "Stars en Dior" and many wonderful dresses and costumes, created by the House of Dior, are on display.

There are also film clips to enjoy of old black and white films from the forties, blockbuster movies from Hollywood and France and even tv commercials promoting Dior fragrances.

Sadly we were not able to photograph the frocks (!) but we took many photo's of the outside of the house and surrounding gardens.
