Will the designer - whose tenure at Jil Sander ended abruptly last season – bring more of his brand of modern minimalism? Will we see the Dior Ladies - Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard - grace the front row? Stay tuned as we bring you all the action LIVE...

Leonid Gurevich (Sun Oct 07 17:09:58 BST 2012): Stellar show? Raf Simons's "work" for Dior is a spit in the face to Monsieur Dior and disgrace to Fashion in general. Dior Spring/Summer 2013 collection.... I am overwhelmed with sorrow and disgust... Simons didn't just kill Dior, he raped it of all its femininity and splendor and murdered every ounce of creativity it ever had. How dare this mediocrity Simons make such plain minimalist smut at Dior, and then sit there blabbing about sexuality and sensuality? I'm utterly disgusted and appalled.
