The year is 2004, and history is about to be made: Charlize Theron stars in the new commercial of the J’adore perfume. Now, twenty years later, and after several more campaigns, the South African actress is still one of the Maison’s most recognisable faces and ambassadors worldwide. That’s why she’s the perfect guest of the In My Lady series, where friends and family of Dior showcase what’s inside their Lady Dior bag. So what’s in hers?
“First, we have some chocolate coins,” she starts. “You can actually buy stuff with this no matter what they tell you,” she jokes. With her candid voice and presence, the Academy Award-winning actress keeps pulling stuff out from her champagne-tainted Lady Dior: of course, a bottle of J’adore, but also iconic pieces like the necklace she wore in one of her commercials or a stiletto shoe ‘lost’ in the 2014 campaign. But also random stuff like a balloon or a shoe horn, which always come in handy. But there is one motto, and one motto only: gold. As she concludes, “I absolutely love gold, and I absolutely j’adore Dior.”
