Finale: Paris Fashion Week

Cocaine Princess here

Today was the last day of Paris Fashion Week and it ended on a bang with 3 of the biggest Fashion Houses.

Louis Vuitton
The show in a word was "BRILLIANT" and it was all about the swinging 60s.

The entrance:

The set, which consisted of four large escalators with yellow striped steps, reflected the symmetry that ran through the show as models stepped out onto the catwalk in pairs, wearing similar patterns with identical styling.
Back to the future: The Louis Vuitton show was a vision of checks - and managed to feel both retro and futuristic at the same time

 "Miniskirts, beehives and exposed midriffs galore pointed to one thing: The swinging Sixties are back (viz Moschino's flower power show earlier this week). Simple silhouettes were decked out in Damier, while skirt and trouser suits made an impact in taupe, black and white geometric prints."

PLeated mini skirts and bows in beehive-styled hair gave Sixties-style dresses a cute twistGently puffed shoulders added volume, while exposed midriffs suggested next summer we'll be seeing a lot more exposed stomachsLouis Vuitton -- Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013

Favorite 2 pieces from Louis Vuitton SS13:
Miu Miu
Miu Miu SS13 brought out several Hollywood celebrities included Emma Stone, Amanda Seyfried and Dianna Agron.

Amanda Seyfried arriving:


Miu Miu's spring-summer 2013 show in Paris had a wintery vibe with lashings of faux fur on coats and stoles with dyed patterning at the brand often seen as Miuccia Prada's baby sister offshoot.

 Elie Saab
Out of the 3 shows this was my favorite. Gorgeous, elegant, sophisticated! The catwalk set of graphic angular moon rocks signalled to fashion insiders even before the show started that Saab would move in this direction.

Elie Saab, master of the va-va-voom silhouette, broke out of his strict mould for his spring-summer 2013 show in Paris. The color of the season was updated to include a beautiful cobalt.

 My favorite piece:

It's been a whirlwind of amazing shows for SS13 from NY, London, Milan & Paris & now it's officially over and done with.  Now we must wait 'til Jan/Feb (AW13) for it to start all over again!! I hope all my Lovelies, have enjoyed my coverage.
