At the Christian Dior S/S '15 Show, Dakota Fanning, Olivia Palermo, Marion Cotillard, And More Are Beauties in Black on the Front Row
As the month of September draws to a close, that (very sadly) means the Spring/Summer 2015 edition of Fashion Month is quickly coming to an end, too. There's no clearer sign of that than the presentation of the Christian Dior Spring '15 collection — an occasion that always attracts a long list of A-list celebrities and style stars to one of the chicest front rows in all of fashion. And this season's turnout was no different, with famous faces like Dakota Fanning, Olivia Palermo, Marion Cotillard, Coco Rocha, and Natalie Dormer making an appearance.
But aside from the fact that they all looked absolutely amazing (as they always seem to do), there was one more common thread that connected Dior's front row stars: They were all wearing black. And while that may or may not be a sign that next year's spring wardrobes will be looking a little moody, one thing is for sure: These stars know how to pull off the head-to-toe black look with ease.
First up was the lovely Dakota Fanning, who sported a voluminous, cocoon-shaped LBD featuring a tastefully low-cut neckline, a tailored mini hemline, and a voluminous sheer overlay that took the entire look from basic to bold. Pairing the outfit with black pumps, a matching clutch, and minimal makeup, Fanning was the definition of Parisian chic.
Always one to look, well, perfect at every single show she attends, Palermo's long-sleeved and belted midi-length ensemble was no exception — a look she complemented flawleslly with ultra-cool black aviators, a striped tote, and colorful pumps.
As a walking, talking, and shining example of how to dress like a French woman, Cotillard looked effortlessly Parisian-chic in her simple Dior mini dress, which she topped off with a soft pink lip, fuss-free hair, and a pair of pointy-toed black booties.
Seeing as Coco Rocha is the queen of bold fashion choices, it was no surprise that the star showed up in (and totally rocked) an all-leather ensemble featuring a sexy front slit, peplum detailing, and strappy sandals.
Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer got in on the action, too, with a minimalistic LBD, black pumps, and sunnies, which she made look even more sophisticated thanks to her gray overcoat and polished white tote.
So as a lady whose closet is swimming in a sea of black dresses and the like, I wouldn't be upset if spring's outfits are heading in the same direction. Especially if it means I could look even half as gorgeous as these stars do in their dark-hued ensembles.
