Top 5 styling moments from Dior AW15
The verdict on Dior AW15 is that these highly commercial RTW pieces wll fly off the rails. I’m quite taken with the accessories and beauty direction too. Here are my favourite styling elements…

While the thigh highs will no doubt be all over the red carpet, the ankle versions are more likely to resonate with the street style set. Consider them as a way to elevate the newly-fashionable 501s…
2. HALF-HALF NAILS
Dior’s nails colours were matched to bags, but not exactly. One hand was mani-ed in one colour and the other in a similar but not exact shade. There were four Dior Vernis shades to choose from (Black Out, Cosmopolite, Darling Blue, and Metropolis — available in August) of which my favourite is Metropolis, a gunmetal greenish-grey.
