Dior Suite

Dior crafted its bespoke and stylish suite and extended a welcome to their guests to come up to the penthouse level at the Hotel Barrière Majestic, Cannes. This setting overlooks the Film Festival’s heart at Le Palais Royale, as well as the yacht-studded seafront and was the perfect venue for Dior to greet famous actors, models and personalities. All sorts of film industry figures called in for a beauty treatment, fashion selections, photo shoots or interviews. Led by Christian Dior Makeup Creative and Image Director Peter Philips, a team of Dior backstage professionals and internationally recognised make-up artists took care of Dior’s guests so that they were truly ready for the red carpet.
