It seems Christophe Lemaire has figured out a direct line to the hearts of his customers: his Spring 2014 collection for Hermès is simply an offering of beautiful clothes crafted spectacularly from the most luxurious of materials.
But what else can one expect from the house that refuses to use anything but the best of the best? As far as theme goes, this show was a very comfortable safari. Guests were greeted with trays of warm madeleines, and the backdrop consisted of dresses and coats in rain forest floral prints, trench coats in greens so dark they were almost black, and a pair of culottes that looked perfect for a stroll in a tropical clime — or at least they would have if they weren't made of crocodile skin.
At Zadig & Voltaire's second-ever runway show, creative director Cecilia Bonstrom delivered a Spring 2014 collection that — much like the hard-meets-soft DNA of a brand epitomized by Erin Wasson, a muse to founder Thierry Gillier — was both assertive and delicate. It was also, for a French label, very American. Cowboy-style belts punched with studded eagles, biker jackets with black fringe, and overstitched ranger boots in cracked leather stood out most, especially when paired with contradictory pieces like silk undershirts and lace shawls. And, of course, for a brand that has its own indie music label, the soundtrack to the runway was perfectly crafted (MS MR's "Hurricane" got showgoers swaying in their seats, for instance) to fit this lineups rock 'n' roll vibe, but with some rounded edges.

With Paris Fashion Week in full force, the celebrity crowd can't help but join in on all the fashion fun. And you better believe we've got our eye on what they're wearing in the front row and at designer afterparties.
So far, we've spotted Olivia Palermo showing a whirlwind of looks, and Katy Perry and Rita Ora at the Chanel Spring show earlier. Dakota and Elle Fanning turned up for the Louis Vuitton show, while a gaggle of famous faces showed their stylish support for Miu Miu. On the party scene were Kim Kardashian, Angie Harmon, Kate Upton, and Ciara, all looking fashion-forward at the Paris premiere of Mademoiselle C. A look at all of the star-studded looks here, in the gallery.
Paris Fashion Week is known for delivering showstopping gowns that celebrities wear during award season. And after seeing this season's crop of dresses, we can't wait for them to make their red carpet debut! From silver-finished gowns at Dior to beautiful lace creations at Valentino, we're rounding up our predictions for the 2014 award season.
Gravity leading lady Sandra Bullock stole the show in her LWD at the NYC premiere last night, but guests Katie Holmes, Emma Watson, and Jamie Chung also brought their style A-game. Katie popped in a bright pink pleated minidress, balanced with understated tan pumps; Emma was impeccable in a J. Mendel white off-the-shoulder dress with Manolo Blahnik for J. Mendel metallic booties; and Jamie looked sophisticated in an emerald green knee-length sheath dress by Cushnie et Ochs and classic pumps. Three gorgeous dresses that all livened the red carpet, but whose look ruled?

Miuccia Prada laid the groundwork for her Spring 2014 Miu Miu collection with the inventive decor for the show, giving the audience a glimpse at the charming prints to come with wallpaper panels. The coats were a clear standout of the cheerful show, with animal motifs emblazoned the sides of swingy single breasted styles while red trim and oversize buttons gave a charming gamine quality to a long navy peacoat. But if you're more in the mood to party, there were party dresses galore from puff-ball strapless dress with incredible ruching to give volume while maintaining a sense of lightness to slinky little beaded slipdresses with enough beaded tassels and fringe to satisfy anyone's inner Daisy Buchanan (or the jam-packed front row including Prada fans Michelle Dockery and Lena Dunham). It's not often than a collection is wearable and covetable, but we're starting a fantasy fund for that cat-print coat right now.
