the one thing: raf for dior goes red carpet.

the one thing Uncategorized

now that the dust has settled from raf simons’ first dior haute couture show, we’re seeing some of the looks turn up on the red carpet. rachel weisz, long a devotee to a more fitted silhouette (usually from narciso rodriguez), wore a black column to the new york premiere of the bourne legacy. while some didn’t like the pairing of a more playful shoe with the structured dress, i actually liked it, along with the matching red lip/nails. my main issue was with the length of the dress, which falls right below the knee on the model. marion cotillard, a face of the brand, picked a mixed tweed strapless dress for the london premiere of the dark night rises. like weisz, she choose a red lip that closely matched her minaudiere, and her orange-red pointy toe stiletto and minimal jewelry were the right finishing touches. and even though cotillard’s dress could also stand a slight hemming, it felt truer to the runway than weisz’s. no matter what, i do love seeing simons’ creations out and about (even if jessica biel wasn’t as successful).
