On July 2, 2012 Raf Simons debut Christian Dior's Autum/Winter 2012 Haute Couture in Paris. And if you were able to catch the streaming of the show on Style.com like I did, then you'd know that the set of the fashion show was just as stunning as the couture itself. This behind the scene video showcases the installation of 1 million fresh flowers to create the explosion of florals three days prior to the show: it's incredible! Watch closely in the beginning and you'll be able to catch a glimpse of Vogue's Grace Coddington in the front row sitting next to Hamish Bowles with Anna Wintour a few seats away, of course. You couldn't miss that mop of red hair anyway.
p.s. out of 54 looks here are some of my favorites from the show -- peplums, bold coats, clean lines, exaggerated silhouettes, and a little bit of sparkle.
