When Naomi Campbell attended the Dior Men’s fall 2022 show on Thursday night, it seemed obvious the model would arrive to the event wearing Dior. It’s customary to wear a specific brand’s designs when attending their show, and there were some very chic looks from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring/summer show in September from which Campbell could choose. But this was a Dior Men’s presentation, so it shouldn’t have come as a surprise when the model stepped out in a Kim Jones-designed suit.
Campbell attended Jones’ show in a look from his fall 2021 presentation, which was heavily influenced by the ceremonial coats artists wear when inducted into the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris. The result of that specific show was a parade of high-collared, button up military-style outerwear, some of which were adorned with golden buttons and other army-like detailing. When Campbell pulled from this collection, though, she went for a more subtle look, opting for a monochrome, pale gray option. The model left the military-style jacket open and paired it with a multicolored button-down. She finished off the outfit with some sneakers and a pair of sunglasses.
The look is a bit of a departure for Campbell, who usually opts for a more feminine aesthetic when it comes to dressing, though she has surely rocked a suit before. The inclusion of sneakers isn’t too surprising, however, as the model seems to be a bit of a sneaker head, and is known to pair a good trainer with a chic outfit.
