Coming in with a big gust of wind, Bella Hadid and several inches of her new long hair blew into a Dior Beauty dinner party celebrating their new Backstage collection. At the dinner held at Frenchette in Manhattan, Peter Philips, the brand’s creative and image director, fêted the collection’s spokesmodels Hadid, Ruth Bell, and Manuela Sanchez.
Wearing a black Dior dress with red heart detailing and wavy extensions that were practically butt-length, Hadid gave a big hug to editor Carine Roitfeld. Stylist Mel Ottenberg, designer Aurora James, photographer Margaret Zhang, and actresses Nina Dobrev and Lili Reinhart were among the crowd.
Dior Backstage includes “basic” makeup products, such as a Hadid-inspired contour and highlighter palette. It also brings Dior into the “40 Foundation” club, with a new extensive range of dewy foundations that may or may not have been used on the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. Markle’s wedding makeup artist Daniel Martin, also a brand ambassador, was in attendance. Scroll down for more photos from the dinner.
