As the celebrities flocked to the entrance row, Raf Simons introduced his Princess-Astronaut collection on the Dior Haute Couture present.

Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Emma Watson had been simply a few of the A-listers that turned up in Paris to look at the Dior Couture Fall/Winter 2014-15 spectacle.

And spectacle, it most certainly was. The present featured eight distinct appears to be like that included 18th century ballgowns (suppose Cinderella) with contrastingly mannish frock coats. However that’s not all, now attempt to think about Simons’ classic-modern couture combined with Dior-chic astronaut fits! Et Voila, there you may have the complete Dior Haute Couture expertise.

Slimline cycling shorts made a repeat appearance. Hardly flattering and surely more of a runway item, they peeked from under knee-length hemlines. The modish caps and hairstyles were a modern contrast to the sophistication of some of those gowns. A sea of white, red, black and glittering gold or silver in sequins made for a strongly edited look, where innovation in fabrics – mixing chiffon, tulle, tweed, even concrete (though you couldn’t tell) – made for interesting effects. A wonderfully frothy powder blue tulle gown embroidered with long lightweight feathers should be an editorial favourite.
