Front Row at Christian Dior Spring 2012

Orlando Bloom, Olivia Palermo, Leighton Meester and Poppy Delevingne attended the show in Paris on Thursday.

MEETING POINT: Doting husband Orlando Bloom, who is filming "The Hobbitt: An Unexpected Journey," flew in to support his wife Miranda Kerr as she walked in the Christian Dior show in Paris today. "I'm here to see her, them I'm out," he said, before scooting to his seat. Leighton Meester warmly greeted Roxane Mesquida, who plays her nemesis on the new season of television series “Gossip Girl.” “Hey, beautiful!” she exclaimed, throwing her arms around the French actress. The two are allowed to be friends “only off-set,” Mesquida joked. Meester, fresh off the premiere of “The Oranges” at the Toronto Film Festival, said she will branch out into comedy in “I Hate You, Dad,” co-starring Adam Sandler, due to be released next year. “It’s different than anything I’ve done,” she noted. Meester is also stretching herself musically — after forays into dance and country, she is working on new songs with indie band Check in the Dark. Olivia Palermo, wearing a pair of Bochic earrings, was gearing up for the launch next week of her Web site, oliviapalermo.com, and said she relished finally being her own boss. “I like it because you’re able to be more creative and have your focus, so it’s great,” she said.
