Oct 4 2012 - 7:53am

The Paris Fashion Week front-row lineup — not to mention the afterparty scene — set the standard in effortlessly chic style. A-list starlets, fashion industry insiders, and the sleekest street-style crew around came out in droves, offering up more than a few covetable ways to up your own styling game. And now that PFW (and Fashion Month, for that matter) has wrapped, we're taking one last look at the chicest moments. Taylor Swift [1] sent photographers into a frenzy with her front-row appearance at Elie Saab [2], while the Delevingne sisters tapped into their sultry sides for Carine Roitfeld's MAC party. Fashion darlings Natalia Vodianova and Bérénice Bejo donned pretty shades of blue for Louis Vuitton [3], and at Miu Miu [4], it was a star-studded set to behold. Emma Stone [5], Amanda Seyfried [6], Chloe Sevigny, and Dianna Agron [7] all dressed the part in mod-inspired wares from both Prada [8] and Miu Miu's Fall '12 collections. Add to the mix Jennifer Lopez [9]'s outfits spotted at Chanel and Valentino, the seriously cool crowd at Saint Laurent [10], and every possible Anna Dello Russo ensemble, and you've got quite the PFW lineup to catch up on. Don't miss any of the action — keep clicking now.
