It sure takes a lot to stand out in a room filled with wedding-cake sized couture, but Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Tavi Gevinson and Anne Hathaway filled the front rows with eye-catching outfits at the Christian Dior and Armani Privé shows at Paris Fashion Week.
We had a really hard time focusing on the massive Dior ball gowns when Dita came on the scene in her head-to-toe black leather ensemble. We thought Catwoman had clawed her way from Gotham City to Paris! But we loved that Dita stayed true to her Forties pin-up girl hair and make-up.
Kylie went soft on the colour and kept it professional with her grey two-piece ensemble. We thought we were running out of ideas for our office attire, but Kylie’s definitely given us a pointer or two on how to glam up our work outfits.
Nestled between these starlets was 13-year-old fashion blogger Tavi, who perched herself in the front row at Dior, while her Lady GaGa-esque pink bow headpiece created quite the obstructed view. And if that didn’t get anyone’s attention, then her newly dyed blue hair must have caused quite a stir. Looks like our little fashionista is going through her rebellious phase!
And if Anne ever had a rebellious streak, then it must be long gone because her cream and silver strapless gown at the Armani Privé show was a timeless masterpiece. Normally we would expect something a little more dramatic at one of the most highly anticipated couture shows of the season, but Anne knows how to wow the Parisians while keeping it classy. Nice work Anne!
