While bosses at Christian Dior are yet to appoint a replacement for disgraced designer John Galliano, it seems the slow process is doing nothing to damage the label's reputation.

Cameron Diaz and Bar Refaeli were just two of the big names to attend the show today as Couture week kicked off in Paris.

The Israeli Victoria's Secret model and the Bad Teacher actress greeted each other with affection - and looked like they had a lot to catch up on.

Also on the guest list were Russian model Natalia Vodianova, reality TV star Olivia Palermo and Chanel muse Ines de la Fressange.

Cameron, 39, who attended the Versace show earlier in the day, hopped back to her hotel for a quick outfit change - swapping her leather skirt for a lady-like polka dot dress.

Bar, 26, looked angelic in a white dress and high heels.

But as soon as the show started, all eyes were on the catwalk while acting creative director Bill Gaytten attempted to prove that all is well and under control at the house of Dior.

A neutral colour palette - save a show-stopping red dress - included the label's signature grey (the same colour as the walls and drapery of the Salons Christian Dior, where the show was held), black and white.

The 1950's theme - and throwback to Dior's golden years - was clear. Nipped-in waists, full skirts and Betty Draper-style short hair were the order of the day.

After the show, Bill told the Telegraph: 'It's mean to be x-ray Dior.

'All the structure of iconic DIor, thanks to lots of fittings, but all of it see-through.

'I haven't slept for weeks. It's been a lot of waking up at 3 am.'

The rumour mill has been turning for months in anticipation of the new appointment.

So far, none has been announced as parent company LVMH remains tight-lipped about the label's future.

Dior's name was the subject of controversy when Galliano was charged - and found guilty of - making anti-Semitic remarks. He was sentenced to pay a total of €6,000 in suspended fines.
