Pattern play took centre stage this week as A-listers said bonjour to Paris Couture Week. The French city hosted everyone from Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka in dizzying Miu Miu to Jessica Alba in gilt-infused Tory Burch.
Teenage darling Kiernan Shipka attended the Miu Miu Club’s fragrance launch in Paris wearing a classic 70’s throwback, featuring a sheer tie-neck blouse, fully beaded mini skirt and embellished platforms. Also in the City of Light, Jessica Alba stunned in a metallic-accented gown with semi-sheer paneling at Tory Burch’s flagship soiree, and elevated her look with a rich berry lip and opulent earrings.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteleyalso stepped out in France, opting for a decidedly grown-up take on plaid in a buttoned up Christian Dior ensemble with a flirty exaggerated peplum at the couturier’s hotly anticipated Couture Week presentation. Model Chrissy Teigen also made her way through Fashion Week, attending Armani’s bi-annual showing in an ultra-sexy, pastel-printed gown with a banded hip flourish , bringing her look back down to earth with a simple ponytail and minimal makeup.
Print-master Olivia Palermo struck a pose outside of Giambattista Valli’s fashion show in a playful getup, smartly pairing one of the brand’s referee-inspired blouses with a wide-leg multi-stripe pant.
As we know, Hollywood’s A-list is always earning their fashion stripes—even when they're rocking strict solids. Kendall Jenner modernized a sleek Chanel wrap blouse and high-waist pant with trendy oversized sunnies, buckled high-shine oxfords and a bright cherry pout.
Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o wore a refined Maison Margiela dress with a side of edge (note the bodice’s semi-sheer, scalloped cutout!) for the house’s acclaimed fashion show in Paris. Bringing a ray of sunshine to this week’s set is Irina Shayk, who accented her chartreuse leather Versace dress with ankle-strap heels and her gorgeous signature smile.
And last but never least are Nicole Richie and Elizabeth Olsen. Nicole attended the premiere of her hit show Candidly Nicole in a beautiful lace halter top and wide leg silk pants from her very own House of Harlow 1960 clothing line, while Elizabeth took to Miu Miu’s show in a bibbed navy-and-white romper paired with fabulous silver platforms.
