Rosamund Pike: Fashion is mad

Rosamund Pike loves the "insane" nature of the fashion industry.

The British actress marvelled at the lavishness of the Dior Haute Couture show which she sat front row at in Paris yesterday.

Rosamund gushed about the over-the-top decor and amount of thought that goes into organising a catwalk show, which is all over in a matter of minutes.

"That's what I think is so great about fashion: when people have the budget and the imagination to really create a set that's just ephemeral and just for one day," Rosamund gushed to WWD. "It's insane and it doesn't happen in any other industry."

Rosamund wore a chic black shift dress, grey coat and bare legs to the event, which took place in the capital's Tuileries gardens. The show itself was conducted inside a mirrored box that contained a lush garden themed set, which fellow front rower Jessica Alba was relieved about.

"I love being warm and surrounded by so much greenery," she enthused about being away from the cold.

Keeping with the theme of chic black and grey tailoring, Jessica donned black courts, red lips and an Old Hollywood style up do.

Chloë Grace Moretz wore head to toe black Dior to the show and said she has a slew of projects in the pipeline, including her remake of the 1976 horror classic movie Carrie.

Joining the high powered front row was Sigourney Weaver, who revealed that Dior creative director Raf Simons would be dressing her and her front-row neighbour, Isabelle Huppert, in the movie Body Art by Italian director Luca Guadagnino.

"Isabelle plays a body artist. I play a journalist like you, so I'm studying you. What are you wearing?" Sigourney playfully enquired.

The princess of Monaco, former French First Lady Bernadette Chirac, and Valérie Trierweiler, the partner of French president François Hollande, were also in attendance.
