Kim Jones’ Crew, Including Kate Moss and Lily Allen, Pack in to Dior Homme Show

IN FASHION: Paris rarely gets to see so many designers in one place. Karl Lagerfeld, Virgil Abloh, Victoria Beckham, Giles Deacon, Haider Ackermann, Kenzo Takada and Chitose Abe were just some of the talents who attended Kim Jones’ debut show for Dior Homme on Saturday at the Garde Républicaine. Guests were greeted by a towering floral statue of KAWS’ BFF character reimagined as Christian Dior and his pooch, and covered in some 70,000 blooms.
Sweeping in on the arm of Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Campbell said she was feeling “very proud, very happy.”
“Kim is the one that embraces all the young designers and brings them into the fold and I think that’s really rare. He’s a special human being,” she said, breaking off to catch up with Kate Moss front row.
Kelly Osbourne said Jones had given her a preview of the set two days prior to the show. “To be here today, it’s a dream come true for him but also for all of his close friends. We’re all so proud, we all think we’re going to have a Virgil [Abloh]-Kanye [West] moment day today — with all of us; it might be the entire front row,” said Osbourne, who is currently

TWO’S COMPANY: Kim Jones will be in good company in his new role as artistic director of Dior Homme, which has appointed Yoon Ahn, a member of the designer’s inner circle, as the brand’s jewelry designer, according to an Instagram post.
Jones took to the platform on Thursday to welcome Ahn — known as Yoon — on her first day at work in Paris.

Robert Pattinson, Josh Hartnett and Noomi Rapace Attend Dior Homme Show

ACTORS ROOM: Escaping the rain, guests including Robert Pattinson, Josh Hartnett, Future, Big Sean and Jhené Aiko and Bella Hadid flowed into the Grand Palais on Saturday for the Dior Homme show.
Clearly not feeling the chill, Hadid sported a black suit and black bra, accessorized with a choker and sneakers.
“The rain, it’s bad, makes me sad,” drawled Future, taking in the show set, with rows of aquariums filled with smoke and lights. French actor Pierre Niney shrugged it off, saying he was used to bad weather having grown up in Paris.
“My fiancé [Natasha Andrews] is from Australia so I think we’ll have to go to catch some rays soon as she’s pretty depressed,” said the actor who chatted about the experience of working with Charlotte Gainsbourg on his latest film, “Promise at Dawn.”
“She has so much charisma but at the same time she has this shyness on set. She’s so humble and focused on the work, she’s an actress I have always dreamed of working with,” said the actor adding that his next project, a film directed by Frédéric Tellier, will be less uplifting. “I play a young guy who gets badly burned in a fire and has to rebuild
