A Look Back at Dior’s Early Decades, Courtesy of Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe

From his very first collection, which came to be known as the “New Look,” Christian Dior’s impact on the world of fashion was undeniable.

Yet several of those titles remain classics. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 12 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

John Huston’s “The Misfits” occupies a sad place in cinema history: Clark Gable died before the it’s release, Marilyn Monroe shortly thereafter, while Clift would make only three more movies before his own untimely demise in 1966.
