No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn - Dior Cruise 2015

Looks from the Dior Cruise 2015 Runway Show (via style.com)

I've been rewatching Gossip Girl on Netflix lately (the perfect alternative to studying for finals, right?) but it already feels somewhat dated. Poor Dan Humphrey had to put up with so much crap for being from the dreaded Brooklyn *gasp* but if only he had stuck around to see how coveted the New York City borough has become. Blair, who once scoffed at the very idea of crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, surely would have been delighted to make the trek if it was for a Christian Dior runway show. 

Some of fashion's brightest young things crossed into Brooklyn for a delightfully vibrant Dior cruise collection at a Navy Yard warehouse, and the clothes radiated both the sophisticated class that Dior is known for and the hip urban edge that a city girl would absolutely adore. 

Light, airy fabrics inspired by silk scarves from the Dior archives meshed perfectly with bold graphic prints and statement-making black lace-up open-toe booties. There are first date looks, board meeting ensembles, and of course resort-worthy frocks, making the collection one for all women to wear and enjoy. 

Hanneli Mustaparta | Allison Williams | Rihanna | Leandra Medine | Marion Cotillard | Adele Exarchopoulos

The front row was just as hip as the Brooklyn setting. Fashion bloggers Hanneli Mustaparta and Leandra Medine (of the Man Repeller) showed up in baby blues. I loved the juxtaposition of the slightly scandalous mesh sweatshirt with the sweet skirt and ladylike pointed pumps from Hanneli.

Allison Williams looked minimalist chic in a Dior tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit and sleek straight hair. She is truly proving herself to be a stunning fashionista.

French ladies Marion Cotillard and Adele Exarchopoulos also attended. Cotillard wore a glimmering Dior maxi shift. It's a cute dress but I think it would have looked even cuter as a mini dress with a swing shape. Exarchopoulos has become a shining star on the red carpet and her look at the Dior show was no exception. Her mix of loose crop top and tight black pencil skirt, complete with classic black pumps, is exceptionally chic and stays true to her vampy style. 

In an unexpected turn, Rihanna ended up being my pick for best-dressed amongst the front row celebs. I love her girly bubblegum pink dress and colorful top-handle handbag. With tattoos and a bold red lip, the look isn't too cutesy but rather the perfect mix of girly and edgy. 

On both the runways and the seats, the Dior cruise show was full of fabulous looks What was your favorite look from the collection? Who was your best dressed front row lady?
