Raf Simons gets his first A-list endorsement!

We don’t know why we’re surprised. Ever since it was finally confirmed that Raf Simons had secured Dior’s top job we’ve been waiting to see who’d be the first A-lister to offer up congratulations. (Well, it makes sense – we’d like to be first in line to wear one of his new designs, too). Chloe Sevigny has become that girl. ‘I think it’s cool,’ she’s said to NY Magazine of Simons’s appointment. ‘I think some of the big houses got caught up in this nineties moment and early-2000s, and I think they kind of have to refine their houses again. I think Raf is going to bring it back to the elegance that Dior deserves. Not that Galliano didn’t do an amazing job, but the bags and the merchandising and the branding got ahead of itself, and now it kind of seems old-fashioned. It seems out of touch. I think he’ll infuse the house with some real elegance and class.’ Nice one Chloe. And we think you’ll wear the minimalist, romantic designs Simons says he has planned for his first couture show in July well on the red carpet…
