Raf Simon's Greatest Red Carpet Hits!

So the news broke yesterday that Dior has finally appointed a new Creative Director - Raf Simons, who recently exited Jil Sander. The Belgian designer headed up the Milan-based fashion label for seven years, and his bold palette and  modernist silhouettes made the designs a firm favourite with fashion experimenters like Tilda Swinton, Kate Bosworth, Drew Barrymore and Diane Kruger.

We take a look back at some of the designer's greatest A-lister moments from his time at the label, to remind ourselves of Raf's fresh new take on red carpet style (including from his blockbuster T-shirts-and-taffeta-skirts collection from Spring/Summer 2011), and to help us dream about the kinds of looks (and the kind of new clientele) he might be creating for Dior...

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.
