The magnificent Dior cruise 2018 show by Maria Grazia Chiuri took place in the heart of the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Los Angeles, with a backdrop of wilderness as far as the eye can see.

The  celebration  of  instinct  leads  her  to  female  figures  who  have  chosen  to  isolate  themselves  in  the  desert  to  better  understand  the deepest  and  darkest  recesses  of  the  self.  Such  is  the  image  of  an  artist  like  Georgia  O’Keeffe. The laid-back, Wild West-infused collection paired perfectly with its Californian backdrop.

Celebrities like Charlize Theron, Rihanna, Miranda Kerr, Solange Knowles, Haley Bennett and Kate Bosworth were seated front row, all dressed in Dior.

The truly spectacular collection featured extraordinary silk jacquards where the ocher, almost gold in color, contrasts  with  blacks.  Female  handprints,  reinterpretations  of  the  original  forms,  become  magnificent  sequined  embroideries  in earthy  shades. The details included raffia, pompoms and sequins, defined pleats and feather adorned tulle.

Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup Peter Philips designed a minimal yet sun-kissed look for the show. See the lineup below.
