The Dior Beauty ambassador shares snaps from her quick adventure to the City of Light.

If you're one to attend the hottest fashion soirees around town, it's likely you've spotted redheaded Nikki Pennie — also known as "The SheJ" — on the turntables, playing the hottest tunes. She's also a Dior Beauty ambassador, often spinning for the fashion house's events, and was lucky enough to get an invite to check out Dior's fall 2016 runway show during Paris Fashion Week.

So, before we bid adieu to the weeks-long escapade of runway shows, the stylish DJ gives us an inside look at her latest adventure to the City of Light for fashion week.

Rocking Dior Addict Lipstick in "Too Much" as I make my first stop: La Fontaine de Mars, a famous French bistro, visited by the Obamas! What's for dinner? Sancerre and foie gras, of course.

It's the morning of the Dior Fall/Winter 2016-17 RTW show and I'm so excited and so lucky to have this fabulous glam squad — makeup artist Emma Day and hairstylist Tommy Buckett — get me beautified!

My Dior Beauty look for the day! The key items for Paris are Rouge Dior 999 lipsitck and Rouge Dior Brillant gloss in 999. I also always throw a Fix It 2-in-1 Prime & Conceal in my purse for touch-ups.

A girl's dream come true: backstage at the Dior show!

Loving these palettes! Beautiful colors, and if you look closely, you'll see the pattern of the Eiffel Tower embossed in the shadows.

With the mastermind himself, image and creative director of Dior makeup Peter Phillips.

So fun posing for photos and taking in the magical atmosphere — such an incredibly amazing place to hold a fashion show.

My Parisian ponytail and I are looking to see who is arriving, as the photographers and paparazzi are getting very excited!

And finally ... the main event. The show was amazing!

Backstage after the show with my gorgeous friend and movie star, Riley Keough.

So happy to see my friend, Brit actress Naomie Harris, and her our mutual friend, Nola Singer, her fab stylist.

Enjoying one last lovely day in Paris before I go. Birds flying high in Le Marais, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris.

My last night in Paris: dinner at hot spot La Belle Epoque with friends, including this amazing Hollywood stylist, Jamie Schneider.

Move over Eiffel Tower, this is my new fave tourist attraction!

My final meal in France — cafe au lait and pain du chocolat, yum. Dior Lip Glow is the perfect addition to this chic breakfast!

Au revoir, Paris! My trip was short but very sweet. Until next time!
