Paris Couture Fashion Week has begun, and I will be around many venues trying to catch a glimpse of designers and celebrities! Today I went to Dior Couture on Ave. Montaigne, just off Champs Elysees. John Galliano is the designer who creates beautiful pieces for Christian Dior.
Among those attending the show were Kylie Minogue, and Dita Von Tess and Nora Arnezeder. Also spotted were Hilary Alexander, the fashion director of the Daily Telegraph and Anna Wintour, editor in chief for American Vogue.
Jeanne Becker from Fashion Television was also there filming a segment. I was lucky enough to meet her, and take a photo!
A lot of attention was also given to Tavi, whose appearance in the front row made headlines when the teenage blogger blocked views with her crazy hat.
Inside, the equestrian themed show had models dressed in top hats and veils. Jackets were precision tailored with silver buttons. Skirts were long and had many pleats and folds.
For the evening wear, dresses were delicate, hand embroidered with lace and tulle. The accessories where chunky with huge earrings, and choker style necklaces with large hanging cameos.
Galliano took his bow in full riding gear, kneeling to kiss the hand of one of his models.
Karl Lagerfeld will show his collection for Chanel tomorrow, and I will be there to catch a glimpse!
