The Dior couture show kicks off with pixie crops, sequin lips and soundtrack by the XX

@rcollete Backstage beauty - it's going to be red, purple and pink crystallised lips and wet pixie crops. We're now just minutes away from the show!

The fash pack are arriving at the Tuileries - Chloe Grace Moretz and Ruth Wilson have been spotted making their way to the FROW

@rcollete has tweeted this backstage sneak peek at the Dior couture show - eeeek we're too excited! If the 'garden of seasonal change' with barren trees and green hedges wasn't a enough of a clue of what we can expect Raf Simons has said of the collection: 'I wanted it to literally be about the seasons; to be about the very idea of spring.'

It's topiary at Dior! It might be snowing outside, but it's officially spring inside the Dior show. Everyone is taking their seats and are met by bare trees and green hedges, Dior has said the garden is the literal embodiement of seasonal growth and change. Grazia's @SusannahFrankel is predicting the clothes will be budding blooms... lovely

It's Raf Simons' second haute couture collection for Dior which is about to start in just a few minutes - we're so very excited. We're bringing you all the latest from the FROW to the frocks live from Paris. Who will hit the grey carpet and brave walking through the icy Tuileries in sky scrapers? Marion Cotillard perhaps? Chloe Moretz? Guests are starting to arrive now at the show venue, to find what Dior have described an 'almost invisible mirrored box in the Tuilleries galleries.'
