Charlize Theron and Sean Penn graced the front row of Christian Dior's haute couture autumn/winter show at Paris Fashion Week.

The Oscar-winning actress, who is the face of Dior's J'adore fragrance, stole the show in a gold lamé mini shift dress, which she paired with nude, strappy heels.

Penn also put in a stylish appearance in a black suit with open white shirt and Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses.

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence also attended the catwalk show wearing a stunning Christian Dior dress, which had a pastel blue top with thin spaghetti straps and a high waisted white skirt. This low-backed number was set off with monochrome pointed heels.

Red carpet favourite Emma Watson went for an unusual asymmetric one-shoulder black and white dress, which had a layered, pleated top and sheer spotted skirt.

French actress Marion Cotillard, who is frequently spotted rocking Dior at premieres, chose a chic black cocktail dress with a cinched-in waist and ladylike, knee-length skirt.
