Why Did Paris Jackson Storm Out of the Dior Cruise Show?

Paris Jackson was among the elite to attend Dior’s 2019 Cruise show in Chantilly, France on Friday—but despite her early appearance, the 20-year-old model ultimately left an empty seat at the ornate venue.

The show, somewhat ill fated by a rainstorm settling in as the models hit the open-air runway, and drenching the front row guests (including Jackson, Emma Stone, Billie Lourde, and Stranger Things stars Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton), got off too a rocky start.

Things got even stranger (save us, Natalia and Charlie!) when a barefoot Paris, shoes soaked by the downpour, “stormed out” as the show began.

According to a source at E!, it wasn’t the fashion that prompted Jackson to leave early, but the manner in which it was put on display. Female rodeo riders from Mexico were the inspiration for the collection, and were thus featured in the show, riding in on white horses.

“She left because she was uncomfortable with the way in which the horses were being used. She loved the collection and being part of the weekend but she’s just very sensitive when it comes to animals,” the source explained.

It is unclear which aspect of the equine show Jackson took offense to. A representative for Jackson did not return InStyle’s request for comment.

Jackson herself addressed her absence on social media, posting a photo of herself standing in a puddle outside the venue. “Left early n did this,” she captioned the image.
