René Gruau (Italian, 1909–2004) was a fashion illustrator, whose distinctive “New Look” of the 1940s revolutionized haute couture, theater, art, and commercial design.
In 1947, Christian Dior commissioned him to create the Miss Dior advertisement, an ad which garnered international attention, and launched Gruau’s career.
In 1948, he travelled to the United States to work for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, before becoming the exclusive artist for Flair. Also during this time, he produced ads for Lido, Moulin Rouge, and Bemberg.
Over the next several decades, Gruau was employed by some of the most familiar names in haute couture, such as Balenciaga, Givenchy, Pierre Balmain, and Lanvin. His illustrations were featured in every major fashion magazine of the era, including ELLE, Madame Figaro, and L’Officiel de la Couture. In 1959, he created the enormously influential poster for Federico Fellini’s film La Dolce Vita.
