It’s been a week of runway shows, celeb spotting and chic street style. The Paris Haute Couture Fall-Winter collection thrilled fashion lovers with its mix of outrageous and classic styles. The designers were all out in force with glamorous designs that will be finding their way into the high street this autumn.
Chanel does neoprene
Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfield experimented with neoprene -and featured a pregnant model wearing a Baroque-inspired wedding gown made out of the wetsuit material. He also featured neoprene ballroom gowns teamed with flat sandals that wrapped around the models’ ankles.
Inspired by both astronauts and 18th-century styles, designer Raf Simons Dior’s collection featured full-skirted gowns with T-back tops and long coats and detailed flapper dressers with resin fringing.
The Giorgio Armani collection showed off softly tailored suits – so smart that even the shorts wouldn’t look out of place in the office. His models also looked beautifully feminine in paillette-covered tulle gowns.
The stars were out to play in Paris, from Kim Kardashian to Kristen Stewart, every fashionista came out to see what’s hot on the catwalk.
The Kardashian’s sister Kendall Jenner worked the catwalk for Chanel, and also looked hot off the runway. Arriving at the Balmain show with a Roman inspired embossed leather dress featuring pleated flaps, Kendall finished the look with black ankle stiletto boots.
Jennifer Lawrence looked stunning in a sophisticated gown at Dior’s exclusive after-show dinner. Jennifer wore a figure-hugging Dior Bouclé dress with metallic embroidery, paired with silver Dior pumps.
Meanwhile, Emma Watson looked classy in a shaped black trouser suit with nipped in waist and open-toed sandals.
And Kristen Stewart showed off her new short hairstyle, with edgy dyed-red tips. She rocked her new edgy look with a tight white crop top and high- waisted crocheted white trousers – teamed with white Christian Louboutin heels.
But the surprise of the week had to go to Hollywood A-listers Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, who walked into the Christian Dior show holding hands and sat on the front row together. Charlize, who is a brand ambassador for Dior, shone in a gold-fringed cocktail dress and high-heeled strappy nude sandals, while her new man looked cool in a black Dior suit and open-necked white shirt.
