Bella Hadid was almost unrecognisable on Tuesday night when she lead the runway at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, Great Britain.

As the newly announced face of Dior Beauty, the brunette was modelling for the Dior Cruise Fashion Show 2016, showing off the exquisite features that have just won her another high profile job.

It was a dramatic beauty look to make her debut as the Dior's beauty ambassador, but the sartorial statement was more classic.

She was dressed in a floral skirt and a caped black blouse that featured clusters of sequins and puffball sleeves.

Bella also made skyscraper heels look like light work on the carpet catwalk, delivering her signature walk in pretty lace-up footwear.

While there were many fashion faces on the front row, Bella's was one of the only recognisable faces in the runway line up.

Bella will star in a sensational new collection of web videos, dubbed Dior Makeup Live With Bella Hadid, which will be released on June 6. 

'What a dream come true,' she added. 'Can't wait for the show today at Blenheim Palace ❤️ @dior #happiness #cruise.'

The venue, Blenheim Palace has a long history with the fashion house as Christian Dior was invited to present his couture by then then-Duchess of Marlborough in 1954.

Princess Margaret was among the guests who watched models showcase over 100 pieces from Dior's winter collection in the setting of the 18th century stately home.

A further Dior fashion show took place at Blenheim in 1958, a year after Christian died of a heart attack while holidaying in Italy.
