ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A forest of blue delphiniums sprouted in the courtyard of the Louvre in Paris on Friday (October 2) as Rihanna topped the bill at a pretty Dior collection of feather light layers for Spring/Summer 2016. The Barbadian singer embraced the fashion brand's CEO wearing a pretty pink cape dress sexed up with black PVC boots and clear perspex heels as she arrived. The collection kicked off with a string of bared midriffs with shorts, pleated skirts and crop tops in thin white cotton, topped with slouchy parkas. Warmth was added by Borgen-esque white sweaters checked with chocolate or navy, and the light cottons were swamped by masculine blazers in black. Stripes -- horizontal or vertical -- covered coats or sheer, floor-length dresses layered over tops with scalopped edging. Everywhere the heels were chunky, whether low or high, with pointed toes and elegant ankle straps. Fashion week runs until October 7 with eagerly-awaited shows from Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney still to come.
