OSCAR PARTY: Christian Dior is the latest fashion player to have infiltrated the Communist Party Headquarters in Paris. Site of a Prada party, and fashion shows for Dries Van Noten and Thom Browne, the landmark Oscar Niemeyer-designed building serves as a dramatic backdrop for the Lady Dior bag and its Oscar-winning ambassador, Marion Cotillard. In it, she clutches a new version of the handbag in crocodile and raffia: the texture echoed in the thousands of metal slats on the domed ceiling of its circular conference room. The ads, lensed by Peter Lindbergh, are slated to break in a range of May fashion magazines, including Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elle, W, French Vogue and Madame Figaro.
