Paris Fashion Week Top Four

Now that the big 4 fashion weeks, London, Milan, New York and Paris are over, we give you our top 4 picks from the Paris runway shows.

Alexander McQueen
McQueen’s dreamy collection lives on with the ever-talented Sarah Burton. Bold and structured silhouettes continue to be standard at the house of McQueen. This collection continues to be breath taking walking pieces of art and is enjoyed every season.

Valentino, who we love, presented stunning feminine gowns in floor length lace and pretty pleated chiffon looks.

Dark, smoky and elegant was Chanel theme for A/W’11. Lagerfield captured our attention with plenty of sheer hitting the black rock-lined catwalk. It was a dark and steamy affair from Chanel for A/W’11.

Louis Vuitton
The theme for Louis Vuitton’s show was a fantastic hotel lobby. We adored Kate Moss’ as she paraded down in the finale. Very tailored coats and ladylike dresses had fantastic catwalk appeal.

Access Denied at Paris Fashion Week

Well the larger than life rapper Kanye West is at it again. It's Paris Fashion Week and the rapper and fashion enthusiast had invites to Valentino and Givenchy. Other fashion houses were not as accommodating when West showed up unannounced.

West hit the Balmain show with his entourage (and no invite), well let's just say he didn't view the latest collection from Balmain. KCD, the organizers of the show told Page Six, "Mr. West requested to attend and we let him know we would not be able to accommodate him. He chose to come to the door anyway and we kindly let him know we could not accommodate him." Yikes. West also crashed the Alexander McQueen show (uninvited) this time he managed to get through a side door. What people will do for fashion!
