Christian Dior feted its 70th birthday at Paris' Couture Week Monday in style with an accomplished, star-filled show that mapped the iconic house's journey across the world.Here are some highlights of Monday's fall/winter 2017 collections.The starting point of Chiuri's empowering, feminist display was a 1953 Atlas etching of five continents discovered in the Dior archives, which mapped the house's global expansion.Chiuri took Monsieur Dior's own words – that a collection should represent "all types of women in all countries" – and gave them renewed legitimacy – as the house's first female head.This couture season, Chiuri really found her voice."Clash of the Titans" actress Gemma Arterton, who attended the fall/winter show, credited Chiuri – Dior's first ever female designer – for pushing the Parisian brand in a pro-female direction.Arterton, who called the house "iconic," chose, perhaps intentionally, to wear an empowering menswear tailored white Dior tuxedo to the show.Designer Bertrand Guyon took the iconic Parisian couturier's passion for painting Monday to produce a diaphanous collection of couture gowns that fluttered by guests at Paris' Place Vendome.With hints of the 1930s draping styles and high necks that defined the late Schiaparelli's heyday, Guyon placed allusions to Cubism and Surrealism at the heart of the show.
