This morning, in the gardens of Paris' Rodin Museum saw a fairy tale of mystique and romance with Maria Grazia Chiuri's first Haute Couture collection for Christian Dior. A surprising contrast to her spring/summer 2017 collection where "We should all be Femininsts" became the focused take away. Today she could not have been more feminine or sensitive, but it can be said that showing vulnerability is a strength in itself non? Surrounded by walls covered in fragrant foliage, the girls floated (in satin and lace bowed ballet slippers) through this magical wonderland wearing dramatic dresses of layered tulle and embroidery- think soft dreamy pinks, peaches and whites, midnight blues and blacks, and (my favourite) green with 3D florals. Adorning their heads and faces they wore floral or feathered masks and head dresses – worthy of a grand ball. The makeup created and styled by Peter Philips, Creative and Image maker for Christian Dior Make-up, saw girls with minimal makeup, (no eyeshadow or mascara!) but skin with a "luminous glow” created to “ bring out the play on the starry glitter,” that Phillips personalised for each girl. In one look, the glitter was applied in a "Stardust" shower on the cheekbones swept up towards the temples. Those looking for true escapism apply here.
