It's couture season in Paris as Lanvin opens the week with a party. The first day included a John Galliano for Dior show with celebrity support from Claudia Schiffer and Eva Mendes. Galliano showed his Spring couture line for Dior presenting a typically dramatic collection.
The pieces created a strong, architectural silhouette with towering diamante heels and oversized costume jewellery. There were plenty of hints towards next seasons key trends including sheer, tiny belted waists and Victorian style skirts.
The colour palette was varied from cream pieces (including this ruffle skirt dress) to animal print. See below for images from the show.
