Natalie Portman does colour blocking

Natalie PortmanWHO: Natalie Portman

WORE: Dior Couture

WHEN: NYC Ballet Gala

Comment: Natalie always looks elegant and as the face of Dior she can have her pick of outfits. This one is interesting due to the texture and colours that make up this dress. The colour blocking helps elongate her petite body and show cases her small frame. The dress is simple and not fussy, however it is a dress that I did not expect Natalie to wear or Dior to create.

The World of Dior

I recently went to the Dior exhibition currently showing at Harrods which delves into the secrets behind one of the worlds most luxurious fashion houses.

There was a video showing the construction of the Lady Dior handbag to the actual dresses worn by Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard at red carpet events on display.

You can read in-depth history about the iconic brand and it’s long standing relationship with Harrods. It is only a small pop up exhibition but there was so much on display and extremely interesting to see the beautifully constructed garments from the house over the years.

Christmas arrives in Paris

Louis Vuitton Christmas window for Galeries Lafayette

I was recently shopping Galeries Lafayette in Paris (and getting totally lost in store) and it was the night they unveiled their Christmas windows by Louis Vuitton. Much as I am a Louis V fan I was disappointed the windows were not more “Christmassy”.

However the Christmas tree, which is always placed inside the centre of the department store, was beautifully decorated by Swarovski this year.

In contrast, Printemps unveiled their Christmas windows by Dior which featured miniature dolls in Dior outfits for a Winter wonderland theme which evoked the Christmas season.
