No stranger to the Paris Fashion Week front rows, Kylie Minogue was channelling some classic French style as she took in Christian Dior’s new haute couture spring/summer collection.

With dusky eye makeup and her hair in a chic updo, the Australian star looked to be taking inspiration from French film icons like Brigitte Bardot as she admired John Galliano’s designs for the famous fashion house.



Following an equestrian theme, the show featured nip-waisted jackets and flowing skirts, with the models each carrying what's sure to be this season's must-have accessory, the riding crop.

John Galliano also got in on the act, taking a final bow in knee-high boots and white jodphurs, with a whip in his hand.

The petite pop star certainly approved of what she saw. "I'm sure I could make a few moves with a riding crop," she told The Associated Press.

Also chatting with the singer at the event was burlesque star Dita von Teese.

It was at Dita's Paris birthday party in October 2008 that Kylie was first seen cosying up to boyfriend Andres Velencoso.

With her relationship with the Catalan model going from strength to strength, the encounter no doubt served as a welcome reminder of where things all began with her love.
