Balenciaga's Nicholas Ghesquiere offered up the most discussed model line-up of Paris fashion week. Not only did he have the likes of Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bundchen, Amber Valletta and Freja Beha Ericsson walk his runway, he also featured three up-and-coming models too. Over the past few months Ghesquiere and his team of scouts have hit the streets searching for new talent. Watch out Freja!
Christophe Decarnin showed an undeniable feast for the eyes at Balmain with lots of leather biker jackets studded and safety-pinned with heavy embellishment (the new IT jacket we wonder?). Then there were the spray on silver metallic trousers we just know the A-list will love. It's an exciting time for eveningwear especially for the summer rock princesses.
Likewise, Zac Posen went for eveningwear at his Paris show (he chose the venue where Yves Saint Laurent famously used to show) and the designer wasted no time getting to cocktail hour with plenty of black lace, feathers, and fur.
And with Dior, Lanvin and Vivienne Westwood all showing on Day 3, we can’t wait to see what’s next!
