Dior held a fashion show at the Brooklyn Navy yard. The cruise collection was previewed after guests took a ferry across the East River. Marion Cotillard, Allison Williams, Rihanna, Olivia Palermo, Helena Christensen and Maggie Gyllenhall sat in the front row to see the latest looks from the line. Rihanna wore a pink frock at the event. The singer told WWD that she is familiar with Brooklyn and spent her childhood in the borough.
“You know what, I spent most of my summers in Brooklyn,” she said. “All my life, I grew up coming to Brooklyn. My late grandma and my granddad lived in Brooklyn. He still lives here. So I do make it to Brooklyn a bit whether it’s to see the game or to see my family.”
She paused, and continued: “But now I’m here for fashion, so this is definitely different.”
