A Major Blogger Takes Us Inside Dior's Fashion Show at Blenheim Palace

What with Chanel’s street fiesta in Cuba and Louis Vuitton jetting off to Brazil, a fashion house steeped in as much grandeur and history as Dior would of course be no let down for a Cruise 17 extravaganza. However, rather than far-flung reaches, the French mega-brand chose the incredible landscape and interiors of Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire. With no detail left untouched, the event was truly impressive—even with the as-to-be-expected dreary British weather. Couture houses and oodles of glamorous fashion-seekers can't control the climate either.

The baroque building, which has played host to Dior twice before, provided a stunning and luxurious backdrop to the catwalk, and we had an insider giving us a real behind-the-scenes scoop on all the action. Doina Ciobanu, super-blogger at The Golden Diamonds, allowed us to follow her from the pre-show fitting all the way through to the after-party. What with lashings of gold accessories, a ride on an old-school train (just imagine hopping on the Dior Express for your regular commute!) and copious amounts of sweets, you could call us a little jealous.
