Never has a catwalk collection been more anticipated than the Christian Dior Haute Couture autumn/winter 2012 one that took place in Paris yesterday.

The first collection shown by John Galliano’s successor was inevitably always going to be, but we don’t think Raf Simons let the nerves get the better of him. The new Creative Director presented a clean, fresh and downright beautiful Haute Couture collection that combined the true essence of the Christian Dior brand with the flare of femininity, romanticism, and contemporary edginess that he brought to Jil Sander.

We bet Raf Simons was really feeling the pressure though, as the hottest names in fashion turned up to witness his first show. Donatella Versace, Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour and Anna Dello Russo were all on the front row watching with very beady eyes!

What do you think of Raf Simons’ first duties for Christian Dior?
