This biographical drama reveals the shocking story of how fashion icon Christian Dior and his contemporaries including Coco Chanel, Pierre Balmain, and Cristóbal Balenciaga navigated the horrors of World War II and launched modern fashion.

From TV Guide:
One would expect, then, that Apple TV+'s Dior drama The New Look would celebrate Dior's work, echoing the formula for celebrity artist biopics like Elvis or Amadeus. The trailer teases a high-stakes artistic feud between Dior (Ben Mendelsohn) and Coco Chanel (Juliette Binoche), jockeying for leadership of the French fashion industry. In reality though, much of this 10-episode series is a rather dull and thinly written exploration of life in Nazi-occupied Paris.
We're treated to a slew of respectable actors like Binoche and Malkovich, plus a soundtrack of 1940s songs covered by A-list musicians like Nick Cave and Lana Del Rey. Yet most scenes are overlaid with fuzzy digital color-correction, which at best looks like a faded vintage photograph, and at worst looks cheap. Despite the show being filmed in Paris, Dior's surroundings offer very little personality. The creative team's priorities seem utterly out of whack, both on the page and onscreen — beginning with the question of why anyone would make a fashion drama that visibly doesn't care about fashion.
