EXCLUSIVE: The Chimamanda Dimension – What she wore, where she went in Paris today

Modern feminist icon, Chimamanda Adichie sat pretty and strong on the front row of the 2017/2018 Autumn-Winter Christian Dior Haute Couture show at the Hotel National Des Invalides, Paris.

Chimamanda’s collaboration with Christian Dior began last year when Dior requested her to partner with the designer label on a “We Should All Be Feminists” campaign, inspired by her famous 2013 TEDxTalk and subsequent book of the same title.

As part of the campaign, Christian Dior launched a limited edition of the “We Should All Be Feminists” T-shirt.

Numerous celebrities have made a point of wearing and being photographed in the Chimamanda- inspired T-shirt to make a statement and show their support (including a number of them wearing it during the Women’s March in Los Angeles and New York in the US).

The famed “Tee of the season” as Harpers Bazaar described it, has been seen on stars like Rihanna, Natalie Portman, Kendall Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence.

Chimamanda Adichie sported a monosleeve midi striped dress and paired with yellow statement mules.
