Christian Dior Fall-Winter 2012/2013 Haute Couture show in Paris this week…
The first collection by Christian Dior’s new creative director Raf Simons was met with rave reviews and attended by a stellar audience including Marc Jacobs, Donatella Versace, Alber Elbaz, and Natalia Vodianova. Raf’s Dior debut was both simple and striking, contrasting bold brights in harmony with subtle feminine details. Paying homage to the house’s history, strong silhouettes were cinched at the waist and plump peplums and strapless gowns were paired with cigarette pants and pointed heels… J’adore!
In attendance, Olivia Palermo struck a fine balance between edgy and chic in her leather peplum and shorts ensemble, no doubt a nod to Dior’s revered New Look silhouette. Softening the look with an undone chignon, she exudes modern elegance and is ever the trend-setter…She never puts a pointed heel wrong 🙂
