To celebrate the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris, guests were invited to embark on a journey of holistic wellness via the Dior Spa Cruise. As the Parisian yacht sailed along the Seine, those aboard had access to mental, emotional, and physical well-being treatments tailor-made by today’s best specialists.
Combining fitness, beauty, and culture for a comprehensive focus across the mind, body, and soul, the Dior Spa Cruise offered five unique programmes to meet every need: detox, balance, reverse-ageing, relaxation, and power. With Dior Beauty products plentiful, including skincare and fragrance, a panoramic view of the city, and a pool, juice bar, and lounge, the two-hour journeys were unlike any other. Just ask Meg Bellamy.
We hear from the actress about her time on the Dior Spa Cruise, immersing herself in the world of Dior, and what wellness means to her.

Hey Meg! How are you?
Hiya! I’m really well thank you, it’s been an amazing few weeks. All very new, but all very exciting.
How was your time with Dior in Paris?
It was an absolute dream. I feel incredibly lucky to have had my first taste of Fashion Week be with Dior and for me, it was basically 48 hours of being in constant awe of the beauty of Dior as well as the talent of the creatives present.
How was attending the HC show? What was the energy like at the show?
The pre-show buzz was electric and you could really feel that everyone was so happy to be there. The show was genuinely incredible. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s collection was elegant, smart and mesmerising. I was truly in awe of the models too – I’d always watched Dior’s shows online, but there is something so special and magnetic about being there, fully immersed.
What was the Dior Spa Cruise like?
Just a delight. I remember when receiving the invite, I’d thought it was a prank, because it all sounded too good to be true! A stunning, ingeniously designed boat with Pilates classes, wellness consultations and a treatment – I mean what more could you ask for? I met some wonderful people and it was a real pinch me moment.
Do you have a highlight from the experience?
A highlight for me was finding out that Dior had made custom vegan leather shoes for me to wear. They were so beautiful and it was an incredibly touching gift. I think it says a lot about Dior’s commitment to adapting and creating ever beautiful products with benefits beyond the aesthetic as well. Also of course the show itself, the food, the people… (I can’t pick just one!)
What does wellness mean to you?
Wellness has become increasingly important to me in recent years – I think there’s been a real surge of interest in the wellness world, and now more than ever I love to geek out about nutrition.
What does it feel to be fully immersed in the world of Dior? How would you describe it?
It feels so chic and glamorous, but in an empowering rather than an intimidating way. Something I’ve loved about Dior is meeting incredible women who are creating incredible art, and it’s a real privilege to witness the showcase of so much hard work.
What is it about Dior and Dior Beauty that resonates with you?
I love Dior’s classy, chic style. They also feel as good as they look, feeling confident and comfortable in the clothes and makeup that I wear is so important to me. Whether it’s the fascinating historical inspiration for a collection, or an innovative, original design, the iconic fashion house never ceases to inspire.
