Miss Dior herselfJennifer Lawrence arrived at the fashion house’s haute couture show — the third at the helm of Raf Simons — looking the part with her new chopped cut, aviator hybrid shades, a crop top, and culotte-style pants. While Simons’ muse was easily the most striking look of the star-studded bunch, the editors brought their A-game, too.
When it came to Anna Dello Russo’s latest outing, what it lacked in color it made up for in Flamenco-like shape. Vogue Japan’s postergirl paired a white crop top with a black-and-white asymmetrical ruffle skirt billowing to the floor, while flashing some serious tanned leg.
Carine Roitfeld went for the crop top and high-waisted skirt look while miraculously managing to keep her midriff under the veil. Olivia Palermo looked as polished as ever in an ivory blazer belted with embellishment and a silvery sheer skirt, while donning some serious chunky metallic statement cuffs. ’70s icon Marisa Berenson arrived in an age-appropriate fitted navy coat worn over a black blazer dress. Street style fixture Miroslava Duma went for a simpler look than we’re used to seeing from the magpie in a modern take on a sundress.
As for the collection and its presentation, Tim Blanks has already deemed it “Unlike any other couture show I have seen.” In addition to its sartorial feats, Simons used multi-media unlike any other house before. Willy Vanderperre, Terry Richardson, Patrick Demarchelier, and Paolo Roversi were each tapped to take photographs of the models in full regalia pre-show, with their images eventually being projected on the runway’s facade when the models finally hit the catwalk. The clothes boasted Simons’ signature high-octane color on modern and voluminous shapes, but were splashed with intricate detail such as standout textures, bold stripes, Japanese Obi belts, and even an African flag print.
