Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.
Beauty In Bloom: The angelic looking Ola Rudnicka casts an icy shadow as she wears the Verticale Plissée yellow diamond ring which was inspired by a dress from the Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring/Summer 1950 collection in an editorial showcasing the ‘Archi Dior’ high fashion jewellery collection. Each precious piece from this luxurious line was carefully chosen down to the individual diamonds and was influenced by past vintage Couture collections; creator Victoire de Castellane chose to reinterpret the fabrics and silhouettes of iconic garments in the way of rings, necklaces and bracelets to bring a classic part of the past into the ever so opulent future. This particular photograph was shot by Ben Hassett for Dior magazine Fall/Winter 2014 which will be sent to clients and kept in the Christian Dior stores. via.
