The house of Christian Dior certainly knows how to make a girl feel welcome.
For former Valentino co-creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s official debut as artistic director of Dior on Friday, the brand pulled out all the stops and welcomed all of its lead ambassadors to the spring 2017 runway show's front row. Rihanna led the pack of A-list Dior lovers and captivated every guest's attention as she arrived in a stunning embellished white dress with lace-up heels, a blush-toned chain-strap handbag, and two accessories that brought her rock star edge: gold hoop earrings and gold reflective Dior sunglasses.
While a solo Rihanna outing is typically a major fashion moment on its own, the guest list at the show upped the ante into the stratosphere. Dior campaign star Jennifer Lawrence made an appearance in a sporty-racy sheer top, a '90s-like choker, and (because why not?) cuffed-up jeans. She completed the outfit with pointed-toe sling-back heels.
And Lawrence wasn’t the only one to take a denim approach to dressing for Dior: Kate Moss arrived with a denim jacket colored with Elvis Presley imagery as she posed with dusty, well-worn pointed-toe black boots and a sleek geometric clutch. She wore a slim black choker that was similar to Lawrence’s.
For Natalie Portman, aka Miss Dior, the occasion was another opportunity to style her growing baby bump. This time, the star rocked a black coat with ankle-strap heels worn over a dress with a peek-a-boo hint of silver.
Meanwhile, Olivia Palermo opted for oxblood and paired her pleated skirt with a lace-adorned sheer top and finished off the look with a dark blue-purple lip.
And while fall launches into full swing, Diane Kruger turned to florals with a gorgeous, sporty dress.
And who else brought the show to the front row? Catwalk regular Karlie Kloss was the picture of eleganance, as always.
This show is definitely one for the history books.
