Dior Touches Down In L.a. For Cruise 2018

This week, the house of Dior decamped to the American plains for their Cruise show. Attended by the likes of Rihanna, there were 12 Elite girls walking in the show, including 6 who participated in Elite Model Look. We take a look at how it went down.

The show was titled "Sauvage" which means "wild". According to Vogue Paris, designer Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired by the book Women Who Run with Wolves, a book for women about about understanding female power, and the prehistoric cave paintings in France.
