Dior Spooked Its Models Right Before the Runway (and It Was Adorable)
Are Kendall and Gigi snapping selfies? How many seamstresses are on hand making last-minute adjustments? These are just a couple of questions we ask ourselves when we think of what could be going on backstage before models hit the runway. Thanks to a video from DiorTV, we're being treated to a glimpse of what actually happened before the fashion house showed its S/S 17 haute couture collection—and what we saw surprised us.
Among the chaos of hair and makeup stations was Dior's resident fortune teller, Zoltar, a machine that dispersed cards outlining the models' fates. A slew of curious models dashed over in the midst of prepping for the show to pull out a card—"I don't believe it!" said one skeptical model, giggling—and were quickly spooked when Zoltar began speaking, calling a few girls by their first names to grab a fortune. Who would have thought Dior models had such a quirky ritual before hitting a major haute couture runway?
