The Musée Rodin in Paris became even more of a spectacle than it already is thanks to Dior's Haute Couture runway set. Lined with mirrors on the inside and outside, the circular set was made to look warped and much larger than it really is with strategically-placed mirrors and lights. We wouldn't have been surprised if anyone walked into a pillar or two, trying to find their seats. Outdoors, the set reflected everything from the blue sky, the spotless lawn and the museum itself.

ELLE.com reports that the set had 400 copper seats and 1,500 square metres of mirrors, and was built by more than 100 builders in just three weeks – a feat no less breathtaking than the flower dome that was Dior's SS16 runway set.

Watch a timelapse video of the set being built here and scroll on to see more photos.
