After Raf Simons’ unexpected departure from Dior womenswear last year, the luxury French fashion house will be bringing in its first-ever female creative director.

Italian designer Maria Grazia Chiuri, who currently heads things over at Valentino as half of the label’s creative director duo with Pier Paolo Piccioli, was hand-picked in 2007 by Valentino Garavani to head his brand.
