HB: What is your impression of Dior’s Women’s Artistic Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri?

JISOO: The day before the show, we met to shoot a video and do a costume fitting, and I got the impression that she is a person with her own distinct colour. I also spoke with Peter Phillips, Dior Makeup & Creative Image Director, and he said that Maria Grazia is a very passionate woman who gives careful and detailed opinions on make-up as well. While showing me the glamorous and dramatic outfits, she made many suggestions, saying, “You should wear it on stage” (laughs). She was very open to challenges, and I thought she was a very lovely person who successfully created an innovative and diverse image that is unique to Dior. 

HB: How did you feel about this shoot?

JISOO: The concept was to shoot in harmony with warm natural light, so I wanted to make it look clear and clean. The outfits were minimalist and to the point, so I wanted to create a natural and beautiful impression with the hair and make-up to match.

The “bar” jacket, an eternal classic synonymous with the Maison is modernised with shorts.The large ribbon adds a coquettish touch to JISOO’s style. Jacket; shirt; and shorts, all from DIOR.

HB: What is your favourite item you wore for this shoot?

JISOO: The long white dress (laughs). I don’t usually have a chance to wear something like that. It was a dress that I could wear only for this kind of shoot, so it was fresh.

HB: What are the main points that you pay attention to in your daily fashion?

JISOO: What I pay most attention to in styling is very similar to the atmosphere of this Dior collection. Rather than being colourful overall, I like a clean style that highlights a single point of focus. If I have an outfit or a bag that I want to wear, I make it the key element and work around it.

HB: Which of the four couture cases of the new Dior Addict Lipstick is your favourite? What style would you like to match it with?

JISOO: The denim case! I actually did a shoot for this lipstick last year, and I was surprised and amazed that they could make a case out of denim. If you want your style to match the denim lip case, put it in a micro bag and ta-da! I think it would be even more eye-catching and cute if a denim lipstick like this appear while everyone’s wondering, “What’s in that little bag?”.
