All the sex appeal — with a classic ladylike twist — you'll ever need came courtesy of Marc Jacobs's knockout lineup at Louis Vuitton's Fall '13 show. With an intimate circular set surrounded by "hotel doors," the scene felt as sexy as the slinky velvet dresses, luxe outerwear, and tweedy nipped-waist silhouettes that came parading out. See it all here — and make sure to watch out for Kate Moss's epic appearance, too.
Hollywood, take note: the Elie Saab Fall 2013 collection has something for all your red carpet needs. Movie premiere? Look no further than his killer cocktail dresses, including a black fit-and-flare with a sheer yolk. Elegant daytime luncheon? Saab's creamy white suit with an overcoat-cape-hybrid is spot-on. Film festival in Europe? Try that killer see-through teal gown with the sinuous beading up and down the front. Oh, the Academy Awards? Too many gowns to pick from. Saab is at his finest turning out a mix of sharp daywear, including trim skirtsuits (and even a sweatshirt!), and major dresses for the evening with a mix of swingy skirts, slits-to-there and lots of peekaboo details. Indulge your inner starlet and see all the photos from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 collection right here.
Nothing is more coveted than a front-row view at the Paris Fashion Week presentations, and the stylish starlets who occupy the few elusive spots are ones to envy beauty-wise, too.

The clothing at Louis Vuitton may have been all about the boudoir, but the hair and makeup was reminiscent of New Wave rockers of the '80s. Cropped black wigs with piecey bangs, glossy eye makeup, and ruddy lipstick came together to create a look that stood out against the clothes. All that was missing was a guitar.
The look: Blunt black wigs, greasy smoky eyes, ruddy red lipstick.
Trends: Grungy hair and makeup.
Who would wear it: A girl hanging out in the corner of a smoky rock show.
January Jones, Zoe Saldana, and Renée Zellweger lent their Hollywood support at Miu Miu's Fall 2013 show in Paris today. January channeled her Mad Men character, Betty, when she dropped by the event in a retro hairdo and a Miu Miu ensemble. Meanwhile, Zoe and Renée sported black outfits and chatted with Rebecca Hall while sitting front row. Renée and Zoe have more in common than just their taste in designers since both women have previously dated Bradley Cooper.
It's a good thing that January is getting into the '60s spirit, as filming for Mad Men season six is still under way. Jon Hamm and John Slattery filmed scenes for the new season of Mad Men outside a hotel in LA yesterday while January was in the City of Light. Fans will be able to catch the show soon as a new Mad Men promo was released earlier this week, calling the April 7 premiere the "affair of the year."
Miuccia Prada pulled in the ultimate front row for Miu Miu Fall 2013: from stars like Renée Zellweger, January Jones, and Zoe Saldana to pals like Marc Jacobs, this was a crowd to be reckoned with. And they were rewarded with a cutting-edge but utterly wearable collection with an emphasis on elongated silhouettes in navy with pops of bright pink, yellow, and blue. Shoes with lug soles were paired with striped tights, while waists were nipped in on astrakhan and nylon coats. The effect was ladylike but off-kilter — just what her fans have come to love about Ms. Prada. Click through to see the full Miu Miu Fall 2013 collection.
Miuccia Prada took Miu Miu in a new direction for Fall 2013, and this is one trip we'd like to tag along on. The emphasis was on skirts, dresses, and outerwear with a long, often lean silhouette. Zip-front knit dresses went past the knees, ending in surprise pops of pastel polka dots. Astrakhan coats were a standout, including a belted one in navy. While the clothing had a sporty, feminine quality, Miu Miu shoes grounded the looks with thick curved heels, lug soles, and colorblocked metallic details. The brand's beloved bags ranged from structured doctor bags in bright pastels to a bucket bag that may indeed be the world's chicest luggage.

Marc Jacobs has delivered a knockout Fall 2013 Louis Vuitton collection, emphasizing the intimacy and luxury of boudoir dressing. With a circular set of hotel doors surrounding an audience that included Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain, models like Kate Moss and Lindsey Wixson showed off ladylike looks with plenty of sex appeal. Tweed suits with nipped-in waists had degrade sequins while panne velvet dresses clung to the body. The house's famous bags were rendered in fur and other luxe materials, leaving the logos off the runway. Click through to see all the photos from Louis Vuitton Fall 2013.
Marc Jacobs certainly knows how to put a Fashion Month to bed. His Fall 2013 show for Louis Vuitton, presented Wednesday morning in the tented courtyard of the Louvre, was as elegant, comfortable, and spectacular as the boudoir-inspired slip dresses, coats, and pajama pants that came down the runway of his wallpapered hotel corridor set.
As the melancholy piano strains of Alexandre Desplat's "River" (used on the soundtrack for the film Tree of Life) began, models in close-cropped wigs emerged from numbered, wooden hotel doors that lined the periphery of the carpeted runway. Each model left the door to her room ajar — exposing black and white film projections and rooms filled with Louis Vuitton luggage — did one full turn on the runway, and then returned to her room and closed the door. Then the cycle repeated itself with different doors, different models, and different clothes until the final segment, when Kate Moss emerged in a low-cut, full-length, sheer gown decorated with embroidery. The audience cheered.
