There’s no brand who suits a garden party like Christian Dior. Known for their delicate, elegant feminine designs, the French fashion house has created excitement surrounding their Cruise 2019 show with a dinner last night at “Chez Christian” bistro, decorated with exquisite table arrangements and greenery to emulate a true Parisian night celebrating the artistry of Dior, complete with a cabaret singer and portrait artists, all emblematic Montmartre figures.

The atmosphere of the night was like a page out of a fairytale. The gorgeous greenery and intimate tables transported guests into a romantic fantasy world, connecting to the collection, set to be revealed in a matter of hours, where creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired by strong women and equestrian style.

The exclusive dinner was a star-studded affair, featuring some of the industry’s most fashionable individuals mingling in gorgeous Dior pieces.

Aimee Song

Blogger and Instagram star Aimee Song sported a jeweled dress with cut-outs, revealing black lingerie underneath to match her ballerina-esq heels and beautiful Dior bag.

Paris Jackson

The young fashion-forward Paris Jackson was also there, rocking a shirt dress that tastefully draped off her shoulders to exude her signature IDGAF attitude. Her patchwork boots were straight off the Fall/Winter 2018 runway, incorporating the signature patchwork pattern that paraded down the runways a few months ago.

Sofia Sanchez de Betak

Sofia Sanchez de Betak, a Buenos Aires-born, New York-based Art Director and Fashion Consultant (also known as @chufy) stayed on trend with her denim skirt and flawless no-makeup beauty look.


Viola & Vera Arrivabene

Viola and Vera Arrivabene were also in attendance, looking flawless in figure-flattering Dior designs. The pair of Italian aristocrats from the Savoia Dynasty are 25 and 23, respectively, and just launched Vibi Venezia, a line of Venetian slippers that are traditionally worn by gondoliers.

Previews of the collection, which were released on WWD, hint at embellished sombreros, embroidered cotton dresses, tiered skirts and petticoats, all reminiscent of the simple understated elegance of the ladies of the ranch in old-fashion movies. The embroidery details are a homage to the runway location’s rich history of lacemaking. The show is set to take place at the Grandes Écuries of the Domaine de Chantilly just outside of Paris. The historic stables, which are a symbol of French prestige, are the largest in Europe and were constructed for the seventh Prince de Condé Louis-Henri de Bourbon in the 18thcentury. The city of Chantilly is famous for its beautiful intricate lace, which Chiuri is incorporating into graphic inlays and frothy ruffles.

You can watch a livestream of the show here when it goes live on May 25th at 2PM EST
