And never more so than when I’m sat at the Dior show. The fashion brand that I would wear to bed, if I could. The brand that inspired me the most and that I dreamed of wearing when I was back in my teens. And now, I see myself as one of their #DiorGirls, attending their stunning beauty trips, meeting with their Creative Makeup Director and wearing the most exquisite of their dresses to their Paris Fashion Week show. I’m certainly a believer now, that dreams do come true.
So what did I wear? A Dior gown from A/W17, embellished with sequins and embroidery in a stunning pewter grey. Underneath, the Dior bra and Dior shorts to cover anything from the sheer dress and to also provide that pop of Dior branding from the Maria Grazia collection. In my hand was a silver toned Dior Diorama in the medium size and black open toe heels with crystals over the toes. My hair was loose and waves but pulled back on both sides in a beautiful knot and to finish, a Dior choker to my neck. The final touch, spritzed all over me was the new Dior L’Or.
It is always so exciting to visit Dior backstage before the show. It is always one of the calmest backstage areas I have visited, with lots of light, room and happy faces excited for the show. And a few times now I have had the chance to meet with Dior’s Creative and Image Director, Peter Phillips to chat about the runway look.
This year it was fresh and light – a flawless base with the new Dior Forever Undercover Foundation launching in January – but the higher coverage version of the much loved Forever foundation. The eyes were bare apart from a ‘cementing’ of Dior Pump n Volume mascara for a super black and intense eye look. And to the lips, the Dior Lip Scrub to prep the lips for a dash of Dior Lip Glow to moisturise and add a touch of tint.
Easy and flawless and perfect to fit with the bright and colourful Dior Spring Summer 18 collection.
And everything else that was laid out on the makeup tables, I’ve linked just below for you, in case you wanted to try something new from Dior!
Another wonderful experience to add to the recent pile. And whilst I could go on so much more about the show and the collection, I actually wrote a full write up of the whole experience over on Marie Claire.
