For the third installment of its “Secret Garden” campaign, the House of Dior has yet again invited us on a dreamy promenade through the Château de Versailles in Paris. Shot by famed duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the just unveiled short film opens on a view of the massive and geometric château gardens and we follow the Dior woman through the secret and marvelous meanderings of Versailles.
Swept up in an exhilarating rush, the woman dashes through garden pathways and palace corridors—with snippets of Depeche Mode’s “Strangelove” playing in the background—while passing through doors that are discreetly concealed or lavishly ornate, until a hidden garden passage leads her to the château’s orangerie.
Along the journey, she unveils her multifaceted nature—elegant in a little black dress with a Diorissimo bag, sensual in Nude lingerie, or modern in a sleek evening dress. In the film, the elusive Dior woman is portrayed by three people—models Daria Strokous, Fei Fei Sun, and Katlin Aas—in a variation on the Three Graces (the goddesses of antiquity who inspired masterpieces by Raphael and Sandro Botticelli).
