Last week Roxie, along with her friend Rosie Fortescue, attended the opening of the Miss Dior exhibition at the Grand Palais in the beautiful city of Paris to celebrate the iconic Miss Dior perfume, which was launched in 1947. The world’s finest flocked to the event, including one of the most memorable faces of the scent, Miss Natalie Portman, Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld, and the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt.
It was a decadent affair, and as an endless supply of champagne flowed and delicate caviar canapés were enjoyed by all, it was the perfect setting to take in the collection of artwork, and to pay tribute to a fragrance which has earned its place in history.
Fifteen contemporary artists were invited to take inspiration from the scent to create their artwork, which included a film of Miss Portman deserted on a beach, which was designed to symbolise the vitality of the fragrance, and a giant version of the Miss Dior bow created using bottles of J’adore!
Roxie and Rosie even walked away with a Dior make up gift bag, which included the Diorshow mascara, and art pen, which Roxie couldn’t recommend enough for its eyeliner precision.
Of course, the finest fashion and bloggers also attended the event, including Gala Gonzalez, a Spanish stylist and a Creative Director based in London, whose blog, Am-Lul’s Closet, has attracted the attention of Vogue with her style snapshots and clippets from her personal life. And it truly is a beautiful blog.
Roxie and Rosie finished their night of art, fashion and luxury with a stay in Le Bristol, a Parisian five star hotel, which is world famous for its architecture, luxurious interior and for their gourmet breakfast menu!
Even though, you may not be brushing shoulders with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Natalie Portman, you can still walk in their footsteps, as the exhibition is free to for all to visit in the Grand Palais until November 25th, which means you still have time to join in the celebration of all things Miss Dior.
Rosie Fortescue also captured her memorable time in Paris with Roxie on her exclusive weekly post for LOOK magazine’s blog.
