1. Jessica Chastain: The New A-List Darling

Jessica Chastain’s flame haired beauty lit up many a FROW. From Saint Laurent to Viktor & Rolf we were dazzled by her pearly whites and sweet nature – we snapped her posing with fans in the Jardin de Tuileries. Bless!

2. Cher’s Headgear

Spotting the Do You Believe In Life After Love singer on the FROW at Gareth Pugh, we were immediately taken with the fact that, a) Cher was a PFW!! And, b) She was wearing a mahoosive hat. More topper action was to come as she took her place at the Balmain show. We can also exclusively reveal that said hat remained atop of head throughout her stay in Paris – we ever saw her sporting her mega hat at dinner. That’s some serious dedication to millinery.

3. Giovanna’s Speedy Catwalk Steal

As we saw a pretty floral swing coat sashay by our eyes at the Rochas show we immediately thought of all the street stars who would look amazing wearing it. Then only two days later we spotted Giovanna Battaglia sporting said coat. That’s some speedy runway to reality moves Gio!

4. Hanging With Cara Delevingne

The girl of fashion week (all of them, natch), Ms D is currently one of the most photographed women in the world. So when we spotted her getting down at the H&M party, we had to go and find out how the lady herself was finding fashion week. As well as being just as fun as we expected, she told us about her new music career and admitted that Graziawas her favourite magazine. We always said we liked her.

5. Saint Laurent Ode to Courtney Love

The first style icon that sprung to mind during Hedi Slimane’s second outing for Saint Laurent was a certain Courtney Love. Dishevelled silk dress, girlish Peter Pan collared minis, tartan shirts and some serious bed head action all read Cali-grunge in that classic Love way. So what did the singer-songwriter have to say about the collection?  Her tweet review read: “having gasms at the idea of rich ladies buying what we used to wear, finally someone got the actual look exact, no beanies.” So we take it she liked it then.

6. Hussein Chalayan’s 2-in-1 Dress

Here at Graziawe are major Chalayan fans, and we were awed by this season’s magical two in one dress. As the model walked along the catwalk she grabbed at her neck and to tear her dress away – only to reveal another totally different gown from beneath. A wonderful moment of catwalk theatre.

7. Fashion’s Gone Global

At Chanel we had a sky-high spherical world dominating the catwalk while at Dior globular spheroids were captured mid-air on a sky runway. Planet power!

8. The H&M Extravaganza

Showing a catwalk show for the first time in 8 years, H&M kitted out a purpose built home to provide the venue for their cover-girl leaden line-up. Arizona, Joan, Lindsay, Daphne and Cara were just some of the single name girls who made an appearance. The after party also won the prize for strangest dance floor accessories – bathtubs on podiums provided the perfect foil to our moves.

9. Polar Power

The threat to the Arctic was on several designer’s minds this season. Stella McCartney sent out polar bear invitations, Vivienne Westwood beat the drum for Arctic preservation while Moncler kitted out their catwalk as an Arctic scene complete with white furred huskies.

10. We Decided We Couldn’t Be Bothered To Get Dressed

Because Marc Jacobs’ night-time appropriate designs for Louis Vuitton have persuaded us that every day should be a duvet day!

It’s a wrap! After four weeks on the road, the fash-pack can finally make that last trip back to a place called home. From New York to London, Milan to Paris, we have been diligently taking our spots on the FROW to bring you the trends and news, hot off the catwalk.
