What does it take to get ready to go to arguably the biggest runway show of all fashion month? If you ask me, it takes an invite and a strong shoulder to push through the crowds of photographers trying to get a glimpse of influencers, models, and fashionistas sauntering in. But if you're not a normal, if you're said influencer, it takes a bit more.

The ideal outfit (made by the designer, of course), the perfect shade of lip gloss, and an epic selfie are only a few of the prerequisites for getting ready to attend a show. Just ask fashion blogger Helena Bordon. She was kind enough to let us tag along while she getting ready for Dior's Spring 2018 runway show in Paris. Scroll through to see how it's done. Like a pro.
