Christian Dior

How many generations of fashionable Parisians have taken a turn around the Tuileries to show off their exquisite clothes? The tradition continues, with editors, buyers and chic Christian Dior customers walking from the Place de la Concorde to the tent that housed Friday’s Dior show.

Purple Gloves, Christian Dior Show

One thing is very different from olden times – there are many more photographers!

Two Women, Christian Dior

Gray, fur, and a Dior bag.

White Wooly Coat, Christian Dior Show

A white woolly coat is perfect for a cold but sunny March day.

Sculptural Black Coat, Christian Dior Show

Love the look of long hair and a black knit cap – especially when worn with a beautiful sculptural coat.

Girl With Flowers, Christian Dior Show

A camel-colored leather jacket and pale beige bag are a great transition into spring.

Double-Breasted Overcoat, Christian Dior Show

An elegant look of a double breasted overcoat and light blue scarf.

Fur-Trimmed Coat and Hat, Christian Dior Show

The beautiful Victorian silhouette of a fur trimmed coat and hat and velvet shoes.

Belted Poncho, Christian Dior Show

A ’70s Americana look of belted poncho and pale suede boots. This was one of many rakish hats seen that day.

Military Poncho, Christian Dior Show

Military poncho and tough-chic lace-up, peep-toe stilettos in military drab.

Black Zipper Wedges, Christian Dior Show

Extreme wedges are the shoe du jour – like these in black suede with a zipper detail.

Faded Denim Jacket, Christian Dior Show

Look for more faded denim like this jacket come spring – a little ’70s retro, but it looks fresh and new now.

Mirrored Wedges, Christian Dior Show

More extreme wedge platform heels, this time with mirrored sides.

Red Jumper, Christian Dior Show

Individualistic style: a red silk jumpsuit and navy coat.

Glenda Bailey and Friend, Christian Dior Show

Glenda Bailey and an equally chic colleague in a leopard print fur scarf.

Fur Scarf, Christian Dior Show

Black coat, fur scarf and gold platform heels on a fashion week regular.

White Lace Dress, Christian Dior Show

Here’s a new development: Sheer white stockings. They look especially great with a white lace dress. These look prettier than black tights at this time of year.

Gray Fur Coat, Christian Dior Show

More sheer white tights, this time paired with a beautiful dove gray jacket.

Hamish Bowles at Christian Dior

Hamish Bowles in a gray overcoat and purple scarf. The mustache suits him well.

Hair is turning up in every color of the rainbow, like this pale pink color. It’s a light wash on platinum hair.

Fur Scarf and Red Lipstick, Christian Dior

Invitations in hand.

Ombre Silk Dress, Christian Dior Show

Red Fur Coat, Christian Dior Show

A red fur coat and gold statement necklace. Plus: crazy high black suede wedges with a gold metallic heel.

Layers of Gray, Christian Dior Show

Her clothes are wonderful, but the thing to notice here is her hair and very little makeup. Chic French women are opting for the au naturel beauty look–a sexy, slightly disheveled look popularized by Carine Roitfeld.

Khaki and Military Green, Christian Dior Show

A sort of military-meets-safari look will be all the rage in the coming months.

Killer Heels, Christian Dior Show

Killer heels. These too are lace-up with a gold metallic trim.

Anna Dello Russo at Christian Dior

Anna Dello Russo arrived in an elaborate feather and sequin coat. She seemed to be taping a TV show that day.

Two young fashion fans and photographers.

Black, White, Red and Purple, Christian Dior Show

A great and unexpected combination of colors: red, black, white, and purple.
