The fash pack are well and truly off on the last part of their month-long trip to the fashion capitals of the world – last stop, Paris! Some say Paris is where the big guns come out, and it’s not hard to see why with the likes of Chanel, Dior, Valentino and Balenciaga among those which show their collections in the French capital.
Before the aforementioned big guns come out to play though, other collections from the likes of Rochas, Dries Van Noten, Alexis Mabille and Anthony Vaccarello helped kick Paris Fashion Week off in style, offering a host of versatile and truly memorable pieces for the new autumn/winter 2013 season.
It was flirty fifties silhouettes galore at Rochas (with a stunning Olivia Palermo sitting pretty on the front row, no less) while it was all about the 80s style goth over at Alexis Mabille – teamed with stunning scarlet lips, obviously! We loved the sexy, daring pieces at Anthony Vaccarello, and if you think the one-sided flesh-flashing looks familiar, it might be because he was the mastermind behind the dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammys earlier this month.

Check back tomorrow as we’ll be seeing what Alexander Wang has up his sleeve for his debut Balenciaga collection, as well as highlights from Carven, Mugler, and more.
