Dior had previously announced its plans to showcase its Cruise 2016 collection in Los Angeles on May 9, however, according to a new report from WWD – this has all changed. Raf Simons, creative director at the iconic French fashion house has decided to host the showcase on May 11, on the French Riviera, just a stones throw from Cannes.

The venue is yet to be revealed, but the new location and date means that the world's most iconic and influential stars will all be in close proximity to attend the Dior event, as one of the most respected film festivals in Cannes will open May 13, two days later.
