dior: asian invasion

There were many beautiful things that you could say about the show that Bill Gayten showed for Christian Dior today at the Musee Rodin. We saw how he introduced leather panelling in a more sophisticated and feminine way than ever before and we were even persuaded to wear dusty pinks and pale pastels in the winter, as demonstrated in the latter part of the show. But what caught our eye the most was how noticeably fierce the Asian models were; newcomers Sui He and Lee Hye Jung were joined on the catwalk by veterans such as Shu Pei and Liu Wen, and they really did steal the show. The soft yet confident vibe of the show really complemented their features. Can't wait to see more Asian faces on the runways in Paris this season!
