Dior’s limited-edition Grand Bal Palette is available at $112 at all Dior counters from 1 November.
Inspired by the dance cards that les belles femmes at 18th-century balls used to keep track of who they’d promised to dance with, Dior’s vintage-meets-sleek-modernity palette is designed to contain all that a 21st-century party girl needs for a magical night out. The pearlised eyeshadows in platinum and gold give just the right shimmery light to the eyes, while the lip glosses complete the pretty picture. The mini-brushes are also brilliant for emergency touch-ups in the cab. But the trump card is the coal-hued eyeliner pencil that cleverly acts as a lynchpin to hold the palette shut. Simply the ultimate party palette.
