Australian Style-setters Welcome Christian Dior To Town
Stylish actors, models and sportstars hit the sidewalk last night to celebrate the opening of the Sydney's first flagship Christian Dior store, in the heart of the CBD. Swimmer Geoff Huegill attended with his wife Sara, while Lara Bingle rocked a red-orange lip and Megan Gale and Isabel Lucas posed out the front. Australian model Nicole Pollard, who is the new face of Dior, was flown in from Paris for the event. Under the direction of new creative head, Raf Simons, Dior has recently seen something of a resurgence, with countless celebs picking the luxury label for red carpets and fashion week events alike. Taking up residence in the old Louis Vuitton store on the corner of Castlereagh and King Streets, the multi-level store was made to resemble Dior's famous boutique on Paris' Avenue Montaigne — it joins a growing list of designer flagships that are opening across Australia.
