Amidst that oversize Chanel hula hoop bag, Hedi Slimane's controversial Saint Laurent debut, and the mouthwatering macarons at Lanvin, what caught our eye most at Paris Fashion Week was the abundance of ruffled pieces on the runway. Adorning everything from one-shoulder dresses at Chloé to ball gowns at Alexander McQueen, these pretty accents were perking up all our favorite looks. Bottom line? You should be getting ready to ruffle some feathers (literally, at Chanel) with these feminine frills come Spring.
Taylor Swift has a brand-new Fall bag, and she put it on display with a preppy chic ensemble in London. Her Mark Cross tan satchel ($2,350) accompanied this French Connection contrast-collar top ($128), a mustard cardigan, AG polka-dot jeans ($128, originally $184), Charlotte Olympia velvet cat loafers, a classic pearl necklace, and Ray-Ban Wayfarers. If you love Taylor's latest look, get her exact bag, top, jeans, shoes, and sunglasses to wear all together like she did or mix them in with your other closet staples.
There's no doubt that the City of Light turned on the sizzle factor with a bevy of sexy dresses from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Giambattista Valli. From sheer layers to corsets and barely there lace, we couldn't stop staring — or daydreaming — over these gorgeous confections. We scoured the best of the best from the runways for you to check out — see all the sexiest looks from Paris and tell us which look is your favorite.

At Carnegie Hall's 2012-2013 Season Opening Night Gala in NYC last night, Sarah Jessica Parker got an opportunity to show off her always fabulous style sense in a blue printed Oscar de la Renta maxi dress, Manolo Blahnik pumps, and Fallon jewels: this bib necklace ($265), this collar necklace ($375), and this crystal bracelet ($200). Her dress and baubles are not available to buy, but we can get our hands on SJP's Pierre Hardy mini snakeskin clutch ($990), which also comes with a detachable silver chain strap. Pair it with your fancy gowns like Sarah Jessica did or use it to amp up your t-shirt and jeans. It would also look amazing against an all-black look: turtleneck, pencil skirt, and pointy pumps.
