Milla Jovovich, Sofia Coppola, Caroline Sieber, Clémence Poésy, Lou Doillon, and so many more — this season's batch of couture attendees was so chic that we had no choice but to devote the week's entire Best Dressed to the stellar looks spotted front row and outside the shows. From Michelle Harper's amazing plays on proportion to Anna Dello Russo's nonstop ensemble rotation (our favorite by far is the pink ball gown she wore while hanging around the Place Vendome) to Diane Kruger's perfect baby-blue French-girl redux — plus Alber Elbaz's superdapper suit, Marc Jacobs's red-soled shoes, Karl Lagerfeld's bejeweled brooch, and more — they're all right here, in the slideshow.
Jean Paul Gaultier's July couture show will include something many of the other Paris shows won't have: male models.
Gaultier is skipping the Fall 2012 men's shows scheduled for the end of June and will instead present his menswear collection alongside his women's Fall 2012 couture line on July 4. The mixed show will take the form of an all-day presentation in the designer's showroom on Rue Saint-Martin in Paris. A spokeswoman for the house said a final format for the presentation had not been decided.
This isn't the first time Gaultier has put menswear and women's couture together. There were a few men's looks included with his Fall 2011 couture collection, and he put men on the runway when he launched his couture line in 1997.
