Actress Kate Bosworth wore Dior Cruise 2020 to the VIP Opening Celebration and Dinner. The Dallas Cowboys superfan caught up with owner Jerry Jones’ granddaughters, Haley Anderson and Jordan Jones, with whom she regularly attends games.

Exactly one week after The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted the 2019 Met Gala in New York in celebration of its spring exhibit, Camp: Notes on Fashion, the Dallas Museum of Art summoned modern icons from the fashion world to celebrate its own spring show, Dior: From Paris to the World. Opening ceremonies commenced Monday morning, when the museum doors opened to a select group of VIPs—welcomed by host committee chairs Gene Jones, Charlotte Jones Anderson and Jordan Jones—who were given access to the show before anyone else. Socialites arrived dressed in different iterations of Dior designs—from ’90s-era Gianfranco Ferré to present-day Maria Grazia Chiuri—and versions of the Lady Dior bag were carried as far as the eye could see. Fashion editor Hamish Bowles, his hair still ice blue from his Maison Margiela Met Gala ensemble, explored the blockbuster exhibit alongside Nancy Rogers, honorary chair of the opening week events. Joining the pair were milliner Stephen Jones, fresh from fastening hats on the heads of Met Gala attendees like Gigi Hadid and Emily Blunt; and the exhibit’s creator, Florence Müller, curator of textile art and fashion at the Denver Art Museum. The following evening, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s creative director, landed in Dallas for the VIP Opening Celebration and Dinner. After patrons—including Hollywood actresses Kate Bosworth, Zoey Deutch, Lea Thompson and Kat Graham—pored over the show, a select 181 guests convened for a dinner designed by Todd Events and prepared by Cassandra Fine Catering. Conversations about the exhibit and summer vacation plans filled the air as all reveled in the glory and spirit of Christian Dior. Dior: From Paris to the World through Sept. 1, tickets from $20, DMA Circle Memberships $1,000-$25,000, 1717 N. Harwood St., dma.org
