The celebs were out in force for the third day of Paris Fashion Week – and we don’t just mean on the front rows! Some of the most in-demand supermodels walked the runway for some of the biggest fashion designers in the world. Here are our highlights from the latest goings on at Paris Fashion Week:
Rihanna joined Emma Roberts and other such famous faces to witness the Lanvin autumn/winter 2014 collection first-hand; we’re not jealous at all, honest!
Alber Elbaz presented a versatile yet somewhat experimental collection this time around – we believe his exact words were Experimental, Extravagant and Extreme – ensuring that fur and ruffles played a huge part in his light and fluffy new season range. Asymmetric silhouettes and Chanel inspired tweed also made an appearance. The silk dresses were a refreshingly new yet reassuringly familiar addition to the collection, adding the signature Lanvin elegance to the proceedings. Red carpet faves, for sure!
NINA RICCI AW14
Jessica Alba watched the Nina Ricci autumn/winter 2014 collection from her comfy seat in the front row, which has got us pretty excited as we imagine what new-season pieces she will be wearing over the next few months as she goes about her daily business or rocks up on a red carpet.
Sparkling, shimmering eveningwear was the highlight of the collection, with the designer not being shy of an embellishment or two. Or six. Wool skirt suits, chic jackets, cosy cashmere jumpers, and much more!
Although there were a lot of big faces on the Balmain front row – did we mention Rihanna was one of the schlebs sitting pretty on the FROW? – some of the world’s biggest and hottest models of the moment walked the show too. It was a star-studded affair all round, basically. Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Jourdan Dunn and our fave American girl next door Karlie Kloss were among the famous model faces showcasing what Olivier Rousteing and his Balmain team had been working on for the autumn/winter 2014 season – and it was brilliant, just as we expected.
We saw an abundance of eveningwear – perfect for the red carpet and the awards season of the present and future – as well as eye-popping embellishments and sequins. There was also a lot of fur that made its way down the catwalk, and more leather than you can shake a stick at. A tough talking collection that we can see Rihanna, the new face of Balmain, rocking on a daily basis. The long-sleeved leather orange dress with the chain detailing was one of our highlights from the collection, although the whole outing was a roaring success.
The Balenciaga show saw the return of supermodel extraordinaire, Gisele! The super no doubt stole the show with her fierce and powerful appearance on the catwalk, but the autumn/winter 2014 collection still managed to stand out and get people talking during and after the show. (Kanye West was one of the famous faces on the FROW; we wonder if he was taking mental notes for Kim Kardashian…)
Alexander Wang once again pulled it out of the bag, offering a sleek, opulent, somewhat sporty, and generally attention-grabbing update on the trends of the past. The designer didn’t hold back in terms of colour, as yellows, blues, greens, oranges and pinks were all in abundance. Outerwear played a big part in the collection – the cocoon coats were a particular highlight – as did knit dresses and fur.
