In 1947, Christian Dior had a vision to become one of the world's biggest fashion empires, when he debuted his first collection. As we look at what has become of this world-renowned fashion house, we see nothing short of panache, epitomizing only elegance in both the world of fashion and the world of beauty. And as gusto as the Dior was then, today in 2018 his legacy lives on. Dior's newest collection for Pre-Fall 2019 was designed by Kim Jones and presented in Tokyo, creative and image director of Dior, Peter Philips created a dramatic yet cyber-chic look which he says is inspired by the great science-fiction classic "TRON".

So, is it possible to re-create this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the internationally known groomer prepped the models skin. Using only Dior beauty products, his goal was to keep the models' skin as hydrated as possible. "I hydrated the skin well with the Dior Homme Dermo skincare line." Philips applied the Dior Invigorating Moisturizing Emulsion followed by the Dior Pore Control Perfecting Essence and the Dior Anti-Fatigue Firming Eye Serum.

Then, Philips used the new Dior Backstage Line and Face Body Foundation. "This foundation helps obtain even skin and a clear complexion. I like it because it has an ultra-light texture and creates and incredibly natural impression," he shared with me. To complete the makeup portion of the look, he used the Dior Backstage Brow Palette followed by the Dior Diorshow Brow Styler.

The look created was used to complement the innovative fashion designs for the collection. "I created these silver 3D designers, some of which have a rainbow glimmer to replicate the new Dior Logo created by Kim Jones for this new Pre-Fall collection," Philips shared.

As the Dior groomer continued, he applied the actual Dior logo to some of the models just on the nape of the neck. He decided to go with a more abstract approach, so Philips applied individual letters just below the ear, as well as, on the forearms, the back of the hands and even on some of the fingers. "I wanted the look to have more of a metal sheath, as my goal for these futuristic decorations was to create a very 'robotic-chic' effect," Philips added.

The hair was styled by stylist Guido Palau, who gave the models a very structured look. For this look, Palau wanted to create a very futuristic yet cyber-rock effect with controlled volume.

This completes the grooming look for the Dior Men 2019 Pre-Fall Collection. For more information visit Dior today.
