The Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture show featured an imaginative surrealist mood, and I can only imagine that continued in force at Le Bal Surrealiste Dior that was hosted afterwards on Monday (January 22) during Paris Fashion Week with Dior’s constant fans dressed to impress in the label.
Bella Hadid: Black has been Bella’s Paris Fashion Week colour, and this sheer frock continued that trend whilst working right in line with Bella’s provocative style. I like the romantic, off-the-shoulder silhouetted and embellishment, which I feel brings a bit more composure to the see-through look. A ‘Lady Dior’ quilted bag and Dior shoes completed the picture, with a sculptural hairstyle to play to the party theme.
Gemma Arterton: Gemma balanced her sleek ’do and power red lip with the girlish sophistication of this sparkling, tea-length dress that was ladylike in silhouette yet dazzling in sequin embellishment.
Annabelle Wallis: It looks as if the fashion house’s logo briefs are back in action with this sheer corset gown. I was grateful for the chic moto jacket to bring some edge to the sultry, borrowed-from-the-boudoir look.
Jhene Aiko: Sheer was certainly the trend of the night, and Jhene wore her version via a Dior Spring 2018 design that actually worked in reverse—meaning, the tulle, point d’espirit slip-like skirt acted as a light layer of more conservative covering to the glittery, textured micro mini below it.
Big Sean: This Dior Homme suit was strikingly handsome for its stark black and white contrast.
Haley Bennett: I couldn’t get on board with this gown—the colour fell flat for me, and the logo briefs underneath were an unwanted distraction.
Sasha Pivovarova: I do like that Sasha fully committed to her artsy, surrealistic look with the mask and embroidered Dior Spring 2018 dress, but that will not warm my affection to the fully transparent skirt and briefs—even in this more costume-y look.
Winnie Harlow: I found this Dior Spring 2018 gown to be intriguing, with the emerald-green colour lovely on the model and the striped briefs an interesting contrast.
