With a great song by Depeche Mode, stunning couture, sexy models and the luxurious Versailles Palace and Gardens as a backdrop, how can you go wrong? (Okay, so I could've done without the tear at the 2:30 mark...)
Photographers/directors Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin celebrate the newest collection from fashion house Dior with Secret Garden, a three minute and 41 second film featuring the looks of the Fall 2012 collection.
Model Daria Strokous invites you to follow her on a wondrous path that winds through the Galerie des Glaces, through the palace's endless interconnecting salons, as far as the grand tree-lined walks that sweep through the classic parkland à la française.
Along the way she's joined by fellow models Melissa Stasiuk and Xiao Wen Ju for a dreamlike fashion show where Versailles is transformed into Christian Dior's secret garden, his emblematic château. D'or et Dior.
