Rare original watercolor fashion illustration by American artist Hilary Knight for Vanity Fair. Knight was flown to Paris by Vanity Fair in 2006 to attend Paris Fashion Week, where he illustrated models from Armani, Dior, Givenchy, Christian Lacroix and Riccardo Tischi. The present illustration titled “Blood and Grommets” features three models on the runway of the Dior show at Polo de Paris. The Christian Dior Show which opened the Paris haute couture season in January 2006 was marked by designer John Galliano’s daring and cryptic show: “Red is the New Libertine. Platinum is the New Marie Antoinette. Leather is the New Luxury. Veiling is the New Seduction. Dior is the New Erotica.” The show featured blood-splashed leather garments dedicated to the memory of Marie Antoinette. In fine condition. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 22 inches by 17 inches.

American writer and artist Hilary Knight illustrated more that 50 books and authored nine. He became best known as the illustrator for Kay Thompson's Eloise series and also created original artwork for a variety of clients including greeting cards, fashion advertisements, record albums and posters for Broadway musicals. Early in his career, Knight painted murals in private homes and entered the field of magazine illustration starting with Mademoiselle in 1952, followed by House & Garden, Gourmet, McCalls, and Woman's Home Companion among others.
