Fashion press, buyers, and a moderate number of celebs flooded the Tuileries on Monday afternoon for the Dior show. Security was tight as drivers pulled in by the gates at Place de la Concorde. All in all, there were few celebs braving the Parisian humidity. Kanye West was a notable exception. He also hit the Vivienne Westwood show an hour earlier, along with fiancee Alexis Phifer. Is it just me, or is he looking like another one of the Black Eyed Peas in this ensemble?
Also in attendance at Dior was Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. The Thai princess entered with a flood of entourage and security, looking regal and radiant as knowing paparazzi bowed down in respect. Her first collection debuted on Saturday at the Opera Garnier.
The always gracious Susan Tabak made an entrance to a flood of flashes. The author of Chic in Paris and fashion insider looked trim and energized, as various assistants made sure her perfect hair didn’t succumb to the humidity.
And what would the show be without a character like Anna Piaggi, whose ensemble needs no analysis. She and other member of the fashion elite, including Carine Roitfeld and Hamish Bowles, entered to see the jaw-dropping show that featured a very 1930’s Marlene Dietrich vibe.
