These are some assorted photos from the beginning of Paris Fashion Week, which began a few days ago. The turnout for these shows is always less than enthusiastic, especially if we’re comparing them to the turnout for the September Fashion Weeks. I always think that the only people who show up to fashion shows in January and February are A) top-tier celebrities and stylists looking for something spectacular for the Oscars and the BAFTAs and B) famewhores who can’t get attention in September. With that in mind, let’s discuss these photos!
I’m starting with Salma Hayek and her husband Francois-Henri Pinault at the Yves Saint Laurent show on Sunday. Pinault owns (or co-owns) so many of the huge, major, important labels that show during Paris Fashion Week, and while it’s clear that Salma enjoys being a part of that world, I do wonder if a little bit goes a long way, you know? She must be exhausted with this crap by now. But she would never admit it because trophy wives don’t admit that they’re bored.
Dita Von Teese at the Alexis Mabille Spring/Summer 2013 Haute-Couture show – perfection.
Jessica Alba at Dior – she looks great, doesn’t she? For the most part, I think red lips are overdone and red doesn’t suit every woman. But this is a great example of a red lip working.
Noomi Rapace at Dior – she’s all over Paris Fashion Week, this is like the third show she’s been to in two days. I’m not crazy about her dress, but her face is lovely. PS… LOOK AT THAT RING.
Rosamund Pike in a gorgeous grey tweed. I WANT THIS COAT.
Olivia Munn at the Versace show. I don’t get it…? Is she trying to be a “fashion girl” now?
