Paris Jackson Explains Why She Left The Dior Show (People)
After her abrupt exit from the Dior cruise show on Monday, Paris Jackson is breaking her silence, explaining why she felt compelled to leave and confirming suspicions that it had to do with the treatment of the horses involved in the show. “To be clear, I did not ‘storm out’ of the show. I quietly got up and walked out trying my hardest to not cause a scene, because I do not support animals being branded and whipped,” Paris tweeted on Tuesday night. In a second tweet, Jackson seemed to be optimistic about the future of animal cruelty within the fashion industry, noting the influx of no-fur policies sweeping the luxury market.
to be clear, i did not “storm out” of the show. i quietly got up and walked out trying my hardest to not cause a scene, because i do not support animals being branded and whipped. not trying to become enemies in the fashion world in any way, but i will always be myself.

furthermore, i was not ‘enraged,’ just taken by surprise and a little heartbroken. and i have no doubt that all high end fashion brands will soon switch over to no-fur and anti animal cruelty, as that seems to be the pattern here. and we should all be very excited about that! 🙂

A source close to Jackson told People that while she “was uncomfortable with how the horses were being handled” because “the whipping sound was loud,” Jackson “meant no disrespect to the brand. She loved the collection and had a wonderful time in Paris with Dior.” This “source” sounds remarkably like a publicist and we’re not sure how Jackson could have loved a collection she didn’t stick around to see, but you have to admire her for standing up for what she believes in. Dior has yet to comment publicly on the matter.
Dior Launches a Diffusion Makeup Line with Bella Hadid (Harper’s Bazaar)
In other Dior news, the luxury house has launched a diffusion (read: less pricey) makeup line with Bella Hadid. Hadid, a friend of the house, of course fronts the campaign. The collection, titled Backstage, is massive — ranging from contour and lip palettes to a “face and body foundation,” which is available in a very inclusive 40 shades. “It’s a key product,” said Peter Philips, the creative and image director for all Dior Makeup. “I wanted 16 different levels of intensity for 6 different skin undertones; rosy, olive, yellow, beige, etc. In total that makes 40 colors, allowing every woman to find the shade that best matches her complexion.” The full range of Backstage products were given a test run — where else? — backstage at the Dior Cruise 2019 show in Chantilly, France over the long weekend. The entire collection is available today on Dior.com, with a subsequent launch at Sephora on June 15.
