All fashionistas are carefully watching the first haute couture show for the 2014 spring/summer season. Designer Raf Simons presented his new Dior collection at the House of Dior in Paris on Monday.

Among the guests at the exclusive affair were actresses Leelee Sobieski, Ni Ni, and Kate Bosworth. For those who are not lucky enough to be there in person, the show was streamed online.

The collection is full of white and purple color variations, with special much light, fluffy silk material. Some pieces featured include an embroidered, dark-ink blue silk dress and a blue wool “Bar” jacket. Christian Dior created the term “Bar” to apply to clothing meant for a late-afternoon cocktail hour in upscale bars.

The show also included a short, white dress with pale green geometric cutouts sewn on. Embroidering was a standout feature of this haute couture show.

The makeup was simple and nude, with only the lips emphasized in vivid red.

Elisabeth Erm had the honor of closing the show, wearing a navy blue jumpsuit with pink embroidered flowers.

All the beauty of the new collection can be seen on the Dior website.
