There were nearly too many Christian Dior-clad darlings to count at the Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party, made possible by Dior, at the Guggenheim Museum on Wednesday (November 14) in New York City.
Jaime King: This may have been a Dior Spring 2019 ensemble, but it also showcased the best of winter white. I love the relaxed, slightly outsized proportions of the sweater in partnership with the tonal, dimensional floral embroidery of the skirt, which made this such a modern, poetic interpretation of classic femininity. She completed the look with nude, ankle-wrap wedges and a Dior Resort 2019 embroidered saddle bag, which was designed to stand out.
Olivia Palermo: I’d almost call this Dior Resort 2019 look minimalistic by Olivia’s standards, as it is worn without the addition of a bold statement accessory or two. However, the look was made to stand alone with the sharp structure of the jacket and the richly sleek edge of the pleated, leather skirt.
Jorja Smith: Va-va-voom is what Jorja was giving us in this red tulle corset dress.
Selah Marley: The dainty Dior ‘Toile de Jouy’ print took on a bit of a subversive edge in this Dior Resort 2019 dress when paired with an ecru and burgundy striped bodice, a Dior saddle belt, and Dior Resort 2019 black ‘Diorcamp’ rubber ankle boots.
Winnie Harlow: I loved the girly-meets-sophisticated nature of this pretty-in-pink Dior Resort 2019 ensemble in which the structured coat offered a moment of refined elegance to the flirty plisse dress underneath.
Hannah Bronfman: Hannah made all the embroidered, doily-esque layers of this Dior Resort 2019 look effortlessly sexy with her minimal styling and smoldering smoky eye.
Kat Graham: The cherry-red lip offered an additional pop of allure to this look, although part of me wished for this Dior Resort 2019 gown to be more streamlined without the wide Dior embroidered leather saddle belt and the quirky Lady Dior bag — or perhaps just one or the other.
Duckie Thot: The Aussie model was simultaneously sweet and sultry with this Dior Spring 2018 babydoll-inspired chiffon gown and J’adior slingback shoes.
Princess Olympia of Greece: The young royal let this Dior Fall 2018 T-shirt do the talking and paired it with a Dior Pre-Fall 2017 chiffon skirt printed with the ‘explore in the sky’ motif. Dior ‘Diorunit’ ankle boots in perforated calfskin leather and a ‘Diorquake’ navy oblique saddle clutch rounded out the rebel-chic look.
Gala Gonzalez: While Michelle Obama wore this same Dior Cruise 2019 white shirt and skirt ensemble on the cover of ‘Elle,’ and looked amazing while doing so, a bit of the magic was lost here. I think the styling is primarily the issue; the fit and position of the Dior leather corset seemed askance against the solemn, buttoned-up blouse, and the black ‘Diorcamp’ rubber ankle boots gave it a tougher spirit. A ‘Toile de Jouy’-embossed and hand-painted Lady Dior bag completed the look.
Camille Rowe: Proving that tie-dye can look quite elegant is this Dior Spring 2019 silk blouse and pant combo styled with a ‘Diorquake’ belt and saddle clutch.
Zosia Mamet: The more delicate, cream shirting with this tailored Dior Pre-Fall 2018 suit gave it a lighter touch that was lovely for Zosia with a Diorquake navy oblique clutch to finish the look out with a touch of graphic patterning.
Nicole Warne: There was a lot going on with this Resort 2019 antique lace dress that certainly had nothing old-fashioned about it, once it was edged up with the black Dior saddle belt and Nicole’s goth-forward makeup. It was a bit much, this is true. But, the Dior ‘Toile de Jouy’ J’adior slingback shoes gave me most pause, as they just seemed to add too much final icing to this lacy cake.
Juana Burga: You can’t see much of it, with Juana’s sleek overcoat, but she was carrying a Diorama bag to complete her gracious LBD moment.
Harley Viera-Newton: This Dior Spring 2018 jumpsuit and skirt had plenty of flirty appeal, even if it seemed a bit bare for mid-November. I didn’t understand the taupe sandals, unless she was trying to match the Dior tarot clutch.
Jhene Aiko: I’m also chilled just thinking of wearing this in November, but the Dior Spring 2019 feather mini was still ever so whimsical. I love how Jhene echoed the pinkish purple metallic hues in her J’adior bag and eye shadow, with retro pin curls to complete the look.
