Interview

Mathilde Favier

Christian Dior VIP director

The director of VIP public relations for Dior France is a full of life Parisian with a sparkling personality.

Her extra special gift?

She knows how to add a layer of humor and lightness to the world of fashion. It is second nature for her, and so she truly personifies an effortless elegance and Parisian femininity. In an exclusive interview, she reveals her favorite spots in Paris and her chic Dior routine.

YOUR INSPIRATION
Everyday at work

Sensible clothes in tune with Dior’s image. I interpret Dior and the creations by Maria Grazia Chiurri in my very own way!

On creating your perfect home

My home is a reflection of myself. It is my mood. It has to be cozy, airy, flowery, comfortable, and, above all else, personal.

YOUR PARIS

Paris is without contest the most beautiful city in the world.

What you love most

I love to walk in the streets of Paris, drive early in the morning or late at night, I love the light and the architecture. Paris is without contest the most beautiful city in the world, and I am proud to be a Parisian.

Go-to lunch place

During the week, I have lunch in my area: Hanawa, the Plaza Galerie. If I’m not having lunch outside, I order vegan dishes from Maisie Café. On the week-ends, I try to avoid restaurants as much as possible with the exception of my local bistro, Le Relais du Bois, and Carette’s for the scrambled eggs.

THE PARISIAN WAY
To start the day

I workout at home twice a week. I have breakfast at home and go to the office around 9:30.

To dress for any occasion

I usually wear jeans, and I choose the top according to circumstances.

To accessorize for the season

I always carry a Dior purse and I wear Dior shoes.

YOUR BEAUTY
Must-have beauty products

I am becoming more and more demanding when it comes to beauty products, and I favor organic products. I use Dior products and also Tata Harper, Sisley, Leonor Greyl‘s hair products, and La Prairie masks.

For makeup, I use Dior, by Terry, and Charlotte Tilbury. I am a total beauty addict.

Favorite Perfume

I wear Fracas by Robert Piguet, and I always try all of the tuberose fragrances.

YOUR TRAVELS
Best memories traveling with work

I travel around the world all year round. My first trip to L.A for work with my daughter remains a wonderful memory.

Favorite summer destination

Greece, Italy, The Pellicano at Porto Ercole, and L’île de Ré!

A weekend getaway with friends

Honestly, anywhere in France. ;)
