JLaw works a tuxedo jacket and wide leg trousers like it’s nobody’s business — we love when she borrows from the boys.
Sparkly eyes, sparkly lips or … sparkly eyebrows?
Appropriately wind-blown and not-so-Photoshopped.
We tried and failed to find some gifts for Kate Middleton and her royal spawn, but when you’re a designer it’s easier: You can just sketch them into existence.
Given that it’s late afternoon on a rainy Tuesday, we’re feeling particularly susceptible to jealousy right now, so the front rows of Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris are a big ol’ kick in the face that just hurts so damn good. Sure the shows themselves are providing plenty to rave about. Multi-media modeling, high-octane colors and NAOMI FREAKIN’ CAMPBELL — but it’s who’s occupying the prime seats that we want to see.
Tim Blanks has already deemed it “Unlike any other couture show I have seen,” but we’re equally spellbound by the looks on stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Anna Dello Russo just showing up outside.
Fashion is art, we know, but Raf Simons went extra literal when crafting the accessories for Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 collection. Andy Warhol’s spirit makes an appearance by way of the pop artist’s iconic shoes, sparkled on Lady Dior bags, and Simons plays with surrealist iconography like dreamy shapes, melted figures, and superstitious symbols (a black cat!).
If anyone can pull of the au naturel look, it’s Natalie Portman. However, when your husband is the man of the hour, it doesn’t hurt to stand out. For hubby Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project Inaugural Benefit Gala, the actress opted for her go-to Dior and minimal makeup.
What could make the ornate, Beaux-Arts interior of Paris’ iconic Opéra Garnier even more exquisite? Ultra-luxe pieces from Dior’s pre-fall and fall 2013 collections, of course.
The Cannes Film Festival may be drawing the biggest names from Hollywood, Bollywood, and beyond, but the chicest place to be this weekend was undoubtedly an hour up the coast in Monte Carlo, where Raf Simons showed his resort collection for Dior Saturday night. Don’t believe us? Just ask the real-life princess in attendance.
As per usual, Gwyneth Paltrow aced it at the Iron Man 3 photocall in London last night. Her black and white Dior pre-fall dress was graphic without being in-your-face, impeccably tailored, and all sorts of chic. We may not be BFFs with Raf Simons and have the power to call in dressing favors, but we did find ways to channel our inner Paltrow for less.
If ever there were a match made in fashion heaven, Marion Cotillard and Christian Dior are it. While we’ve heard some doubts about whether Jennifer Lawrence or Mila Kunis have been quite the right fit for the brand, it seems like no one can deny the Gallic beauty’s sophisticated allure (and ability to shill Lady Dior handbags like nobody’s business). Plus, the technicolor lighting in this shoot is just amazing.
Raf Simons‘ second ready-to-wear show for Christian Dior walked today in Paris, which meant we were at our screens bright and early to catch the live stream of the hotly-anticipated event. In many ways, it was the perfect start to the morning: a breezy, upbeat collection blending pop art, surrealism, and the well-entrenched codes of the storied French house.
We’re starting off our Friday with a livestream of the Christian Dior fall 2013 show, and we saved you a seat in the front row!
Are you sick of Jennifer Lawrence yet? Yeah, us neither. In fact, we’ve pretty much come to terms with the fact that this week may just be wall-to-wall JLaw coverage following her jawdropping Christian Dior Couture red carpet moment, her huge Oscars Best Actress win, and totally endearing fall up the stairs to collect her award.
It’s safe to say that the Christian Dior execs who hired Raf Simons must be giving themselves a big pat on the back right about now.
From a Dior boutique opening to a Netflix mini-series premiere to, well, Diane Kruger: who gets your vote for best in show?
As far as we’re concerned, the more Raf Simons gets his hands on, the better. So we were excited to learn that the Dior designer will be behind the costumes for Sigourney Weaver and Isabelle Huppert‘s upcoming film, Body Art.
Bejeweled lips: not a beauty look we thought we’d ever find appealing. And yet, at today’s Christian Dior haute couture runway show, Pat McGrath worked her magic on the parade of models, giving their pouts the kind of pizzazz usually reserved for the cocktail dresses on their backs.
