‘Le Bal Surrealiste’ Dior

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.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture

A couple of days after the Dior Homme show, more Dior-clad darlings descended on the Rodin Museum for the fashion house’s runway show, the first big one of Paris haute couture week on Monday (January 22).

Emily Blunt: Sleekly elegant styling was the only way to go for this ornately printed Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2018 frock, and Emily complied.

Annabelle Wallis: Statement shirts continue to be a relevant trend, and Annabelle’s fit the bill. I like how she styled it with the graphic jacket (which coincidentally reflected the show’s checquerboard set), high-waist, cropped trousers, and hat for a slice of Parisian rebel-chic.

Willow Smith: Perhaps taking a cue from the surrealist mood of the show in her white eye makeup, Willow offered a more girly perspective than we would expect from her urban-cool style in this sheer tulle gown juxtaposed with a tuxedo vest.

Sally Hawkins In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Sally Hawkins attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The nominee wore a Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown with a Tyler Ellis clutch, Stuart Weitzman ‘Queen’ pumps and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

Never one to shy away from bold fashion, Sally wears this in a way that many people could not. While it is definitely what many would refer to as a ‘lot of look’, I love how graphic and unique it is. The length is perfect on Sally’s petite frame, and I can’t help but smile, because she looks like she’s genuinely enjoying wear it.

I will say, I miss the belt from the runway presentation. Without it, the center of the print looks like a bullseye, and I find myself staring straight at it, every time I look at the gown.

Odeya Rush In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Odeya Rush was also in attendance at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 21) in LA.

The up-and-coming Israeli actress donned a Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture frock.

Diaphanous tulle and exploded herringbone lines made for an intriguing balance of sweetness and directional structure in this dress, which I thought she carried off quite well.

Lorraine Schwartz jewels and long waves completed the look suitable of a young ingénue.

So well-defined was the waist that I didn’t even miss the belt.

Laura Dern In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Laura Dern joined the ‘Big Little Lies’ cast at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 21) in Los Angeles, California.

The Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie nominee was outfitted in a Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture dress.

My inclination is that this would have been better suited to a performance piece where we could see the fringe in motion — like we saw on the runway.

I’m afraid that the details on the dress will largely be lost in static photos.

Of course, I am sure many will say they’ve seen enough of the sheer fabric and the visible briefs already.

Natalia Dyer In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Natalia Dyer was another one of the early arrivals on the red carpet of the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 21) in LA.

I’ve been awaiting a modern princess moment from the ‘Stranger Things’ starlet, and she delivered her own interpretation of such in this Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture gown.

I was enamoured by the youthful sophistication of the look and how at ease Natalia seemed to be in the dress.

It was perfectly feminine—with a nod to Dior’s classic New Look aesthetic in its fitted bodice and the sweeping pouf of the ball skirt.

Yet, even still, the ensemble held true to the actress’s quirky-cool style thanks to the eclectic print of the celestial beings.

As for her beauty look, she hit it out of the park with her sleek-sweet bun and retro-winged eyeliner.

Front Row @ Dior Homme Fall 2018

Some of Dior’s most dashing and fashionably daring fans were in attendance at the brand’s Dior Homme Fall 2018 show, held on Saturday (January 20) during Paris Fashion Week.

Robert Pattinson: Monochromatic black proved far from boring on Robert, who cut an impossibly cool profile by wearing a Dior Homme leather bomber jacket over his Dior Homme suit. I love the slightly rebellious effect it provided. A black cotton tee and black leather derbies completed the look.

Bella Hadid: Speaking of style rebels, look no further than Bella who walked on the wild side with Dior Homme’s ‘New Look’ jacket and pants featuring an all-over tribal print. Her silver sunglasses and bandana echoed the same print, with the exposed bra adding her signature side of sexiness. I know those red, fluorescent yellow and white techno sneakers may be a marmite addition to the look, but I was a fan of their unexpectedness.

Future: Rocking the same sneakers that again shone like a beacon on an all-black look, Future paired his with a Dior Homme shiny-effect leather bomber jacket styled over a wool turtleneck and wool pants. The metal round sunglasses added even more attitude.
