It’s quite possible that many pieces in Raf Simons’s debut Dior collection were spoken for even before they hit the runway last month. By now, you can bet that every garment has been carefully distributed to select Hollywood stylists under strict agreements about who can wear them and when; they’ll then trickle into top magazines within a few months. Last night, Jessica Biel got the honor of being the third person in the entire world to air one of Simons’s Dior designs — a structured pink gown with a corseted waist — on a red carpet. When will we stop getting excited to see these clothes in quasi-real-life? Even if you hated the collection, don’t even try to deny the thrill of playing Spot the Dior.
