Raf Simons Dior debut at Paris couture

~ ~
The whole fashion world awaited this show for some time and as they waited with bated breath they weren`t left disappointed.

Raf Simons made his debut as creative director of the legendary fashion house with a collection that was loyal to its feminine aesthetic, while bringing a decidedly modern edge with dramatic ballgowns, dark suits and the odd nod to classic Dior of the late 1940s what was a grand goodbye to J. Galliano era.

Clean elegant and simple lines with a interesting mixture of retro vibe and modern edgy finish. Like Grace Kelly of the 21st century.

This would be my perfect every day retro outfit with just right amount of modern statement.

The most eye-catching ansamble for me was the hot pink dress with pants underneath. The color is so rich and vibrant, the corset cut is a mixture of two styles, like they are accentuating and calming each other at the same time. And the dress by itself would be still very beautiful and trendy but this surprise accent with a center cut and pants underneath is the right kind of unexpected surprise, just right up my alley. One second you are super fabulous wearing ("just"-lol, Dior is never an "just", right?) Dior dress, and in the other second you are rocking this amazing outfit like a star. It is so simple and effortless, I am truly in love.

This one I like becasue it so fluid, again simple and super bold in this rich color. Statement piece from head to toe.
