Though liberated from Nazi rule in 1944, for years Paris remained shackled by the horrors of war. The antidote took an unlikely form. Out of the depths emerged a designer by the name of Christian Dior, whose legendary debut collection ushered in a golden era for the erstwhile fashion capital of the world.

Chanel was a gatekeeper, the undisputed queen of couture, and far more besides – a Nazi sympathiser who not only supported the occupation but actively assisted in it. When Dior's dramatic, hyper-feminine, lavish collection knocked the influential Harper's Bazaar editor Carmel Snow (Glenn Close) – who coined the term New Look – off her feet in 1947, Chanel bit back.

"The New Look" is that story, underlining the healing potential of art and how beauty can spring from even the ugliest abyss. It stars Maisie Williams as Catherine Dior, Claes Bang as Chanel's lover Hans Von Dincklage, and Nuno Lopes as Dior's contemporary, Cristóbal Balenciaga.
