Beauty | Golden Jungle by Dior Fall 2012 Collection


Among her many other pursuits, Carine Roitfeld styled this striking campaign for the Dior Golden Jungle Fall 2012 beauty collection which debuts next month. Carine has infused the advertisements with a glamorous 1920s vibe, j'adore. Daria Strokous models the golden makeup beneath a leopard hat from the Fall 2008 couture collection; Steven Meisel photographed the glowing campaign. It seems everything Carine touches turns to gold …

In February 1947, Christian Dior presented his first collection to the international press in the Dior salons of Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Along with the Huit and Corolle lines that would inaugurate the era of “The New Look,” the couturier revealed another of his favourite themes: Leopard Print. Fashion editors were smitten, the room burst into applause and women rediscovered the mysterious allure of this iconic, timeless print.
At once avant-garde, sophisticated and sensual, the Jungle Motif has been a signature of the House of Dior from its debut. Actress Marlene Dietrich and the muse and friend of Mr. Dior, Mitzah Bircard, were its first fervent ambassadors. With each decade and runway show, variations of leopard print are cleverly reinterpreted by Dior Couture. In the Dior Autumn/Winter 2012 makeup collection, Tyen revamps the Jungle Motif with another hallmark of Dior, a touch of shimmering gold, embodying the luxury of the urban jungle and inspired by the deep, earthy tones of the jungle.

I’m a huge fan of the Dior palette compacts. The compact themselves are always classy looking and something you want to show and the products inside never disappoint. And for fall, who doesn’t want an animal print?! Dior's Golden Jungle palette - the animal “print” of eye shadows are a trio of nude, medium brown and deep brown in a trio of textures - iridescent, matte and satin.  Inside the compact is also a nude lip gloss which is smartly covered by a silver lid that goes directly over the lip gloss so not to mix with the eye shadows.  This would be a beautiful compact that is wearable by most skin tones and definitely a hit for women over 40. Important to know: This is a limited edition palette. When they’re gone – they’re gone!
