    famous for...widely known for having done something, recognized by many people.

    Christian Dior is famous for his fashions and cosmetics.
    Sigimund Freud is famous for his contribution to science.

    popular with - widely liked, appreciated, accepted by many.
    If you are famous you don't necessarily have to be popular. For example Goerge Bush is famous (we all know who he is) but with most of us he is not a very popular president.
