Simon Porte Jacquemus knows how to host a fashion show. After the lavender-blanketed hills of Provence, a golden wheat field, and the salt flats of Camargue, he brought his newest Le Chouchou collection to the grounds of the Palace of Versailles. Jacquemus’s front rows have become just as starry as the supermodel casting – today David and Victoria Beckham were among the guests who watched the runway from white rowing boats moored on the lake at the edge of a spectacular scarlet runway, which meandered through the gardens of the historic palace.
Beckham wore a soft pink slip dress with a flowing asymmetric hemline and dainty spaghetti straps, and a giant ruffled flower adorning her right hip (perhaps a nod to the garden setting). Light and breezy, it was an ideal choice for late June in France. Beckham always puts style over comfort, however, and so instead of an obvious choice like strappy sandals, she wore thigh-high peep toe boots underneath her slip dress (could it be that VB subscribes to the “wrong-shoe theory”?).
