This past weekend, Visual Therapy lead stylist Lisa Marie McComb attended the Dior 2019 Cruise/Resort show in Chantilly, France. To say the experience was extraordinary would be an understatement. Between her stay at the always beautiful Plaza Athénée in Paris, the long journey to the show’s venue, braving the elements mid show (!) and finally being able to view the collection up close and personal at the Resee, the experience was truly one to remember. Follow her along on this stylish adventure below and for even more behind the scenes action, check out her instagram @lmcstyle!

Day 2, Part II: Showtime!
The royal stables at Domaine de Chantilly. The show started with a beautiful display by a team of Mexican Rodeo women. The weather was not cooperative and a heavy storm moved in just as the show began!
The show must go on…rain or shine! @dior the horses didn’t mind but these ladies were soaked! #diorcruise19 #dior #equestrian #sidesaddle #escaramuza #chantilly #paris #stylist #fashion @visualtherapyny #lovemyjob #love (look up these stunning Escaramuza Charra Rayenari ladies…not on IG just Facebook)
The models walked along the stable amidst the storm.
Even though it was pouring, the show was still nothing short of magical. Maria Grazia Chiuri definitely brought her A game with this collection and we can’t wait to shop our favorite pieces for our clients.Lisa Marie poses with the Mexican Rodeo women post show.

Lisa Marie was thrilled to be invited to view the (somehow dry!) collection up close and personal at Resee.
