Seated in the front row at the French luxury fashion house’s runway spectacle, Rutherford exuded sophistication in a classic Christian Dior skirt suit – a testament to the enduring appeal of timeless elegance.

The Jane the Virgin star’s ensemble, exuding refined charm, featured a fitted, cropped cream blazer adorned with round buttons bearing the iconic CD logo.

Rutherford didn’t shy away from embracing Dior head-to-toe, adorning her feet with glossy beige Sweet-D slingback pumps, playfully accented with a neat bow on one side.

The coordination continued with accessories, including a quilted cream-colored Lady Dior bag from the latest collection and a large golden ring fashioned into a fancy metallic knot, providing luxury.

Her beauty exuded simplicity as she tucked her sleek, straight, blonde hair behind her ears with a center part.
