Kelly Rutherford has arrived at Paris Fashion Week in style.

The actor embodied sophistication in a classic Christian Dior skirt suit while sitting front row at the French fashion house’s spring/summer 2024 haute couture runway show. She wore a fitted, cropped cream blazer with round buttons emblazoned with the brand’s CD logo, with a pleated A-line skirt in the same soft hue. Rutherford wore the skirt suit—a longtime Dior staple—with glossy beige slingback pumps adorned with a neat bow on one side, and a cream-coloured Lady Dior bag from the latest collection. Her only jewellery was a large golden ring in the form of a fancy, metallic knot.

Rutherford tucked her straight blonde hair behind her ears and wore natural makeup, including a subtle pink lip and a glossy nude manicure.

Best known for her role as wealthy Upper East Sider Lily van der Woodsen in the cult-classic series Gossip Girl, Rutherford has been making headlines as of late, thanks to her fit-check mirror selfies, which she’s been sharing on Instagram.

Her looks often include timeless staples in neutral tones—cosy jumpers, pleated trousers, A-line skirts—mixed in with great coats, statement boots, and big sunglasses. It’s elevated and luxurious, like Lily’s socialite wardrobe, but much cooler and more inventive—evidence that Rutherford utterly enjoys dressing up every morning. Like, if the opulence of Capote vs. The Swans met Copenhagen street style.

Rutherford’s latest Dior look is more proof that old-school glamour is back after a long pandemic slump, people are excited to dress up again, and the ladies-who-lunch aesthetic is getting a fabulous rebrand.
