All the big designers choose Paris Fashion Week as the one in which to reveal their next collections. Dior, Balmain, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, to name but a few, take over the French capital for shows of flamboyance, decadence and outrageous style.
As all of these high-profile designers dress celebrities for red carpet events and so the celebs returned the favour by attending their catwalk shows. The designers have so much influence that many stars flew over from LA including Grammy award winning singer Rihanna and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. The A’listers love Paris!
And we love seeing what the A’listers wore as it’s fantastic inspiration for autumn smart casual wear. It’s a bit chilly in Paris but the celebs still had to keep up appearances. These stars did a great job of that:
Jessica showed that you can never look too dressed up. She’s wearing a black maxi dress but she styles it down with a black biker jacket and what appears to be black boots. It’s perfect for the autumn chill but it’s also very chic.
J-Law attended the Dior show in a laid-back look that she rocked because she appeared comfortable and super confident. Boyfriend jeans are on trend this season and Jennifer dressed hers up with a pair of black heels and a sheer black top. This is sports luxe meets weekend casual wear and Jen gets away with it as her natural style is relaxed off-duty wear. Once you have found your style, stick to it!
Ri-Ri takes risks when it comes to fashion and her goal is to always make people look twice. I love her cold-shoulder dress and it looks fierce with lace up sandals. All of the other guests at the Dior show must have been envious!
When Kim gets it right, she looks divine. I loved the faux-fur coat that she wore to a reception for Americans in Paris. It looks especially good with her super sleek hair and minimal make-up as a coat like this deserves all the attention.
When model Alessandra Ambrosio isn’t sashaying down the catwalk, she’s using the streets of Paris as her runway. She looks just as good – if not better – when she’s off-duty. Slim leg jeans and heeled ankle boots are the perfect smart causal combo and the red coat gives an extra wow factor.
When Gigi isn’t working, she likes to dress down. She does look good in a tracksuit though! There are some lovely new-in tracksuits this season, that will make us look stylish but super cosy and comfortable. It’s now become acceptable to wear tracksuits outside the house. After all, if it’s good enough for Gigi…
Karlie was an example of old-fashioned elegance at the Dior show. Her pencil skirt is the stand-out piece bit look closer and you notice the pretty lace top. She tops it all off with a simple black jacket. Pure class.
