Who doesn't love a catwalk show? Beautiful clothes on beautiful people… What's not to love? Couture Fashion Week goes one step further with EVEN more beautiful clothes and, since it kicked off on Sunday, it's already got us talking.
SS16 opened with the Atelier Versace show, with the usual gang of models including the newly-engaged Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk and Joan Smalls, with Rita Ora and Miroslava Duma sitting front row side.
Donatella's 'Athletic Couture' collection was performance sporty and modern with blocky colours and lines, complete with stirrups, knot and harness strap details - and Joan Smalls looked INCREDIBLE. Of course, Irina, Rosie and Gigi did too - with a strong smokey power eye - but Joan was our fav.
Schiaparelli had less of a celeby line-up, but some MEGA hair. Crimped and preened into perfect Lego-look asymmetric almost-bobs, it was excellent (though not a style we'll necessarily be trying ourselves). Fashion plates Kate Bosworth was catwalk-side, in a garish fun suit, while Olivia Palermo went uncharacteristically low-key in clashing checked prints.
Then the Giambattista Valli show - where the amazing Lineisy Montero walked - was as beautiful as ever, with the backstage pictures of the dresses making us swu-hoon.
Chanel was predictably totally amazing. Gigi, Bella and Kendall all walked in the show, alongside Karl's usual model set, with Princess Leia-like buns and painterly eyes. Cara Delevingne was sitting in her usual posish on the front row, with a PUPPY and incredibly plaited hair.
With Alexandre Vaulthier, Maison Margiela, Elie Saab, Ulyana Sergeenko, Valentino and loads more still to come, watch this space…
