What's it like in the hours and minutes before a runway show? Lineups and rehearsals are just the beginning. Then comes the frenetic energy backstage, where for each model there's a hairstylist, makeup artist, manicurist, and stylist — all working her up at once. We take you behind the scenes for it all at the Zadig & Voltaire show. Plus, find out what the French label's creative director tells us about the new collection.

Paris Fashion Week is not for the faint of heart. Between the packed schedules of runway shows, backstage interviews, and showroom appointments with local design houses, we keep a pretty tight schedule. But don't worry, we still made time for the important things — shopping at the best Parisian boutiques, eating plenty of macarons, and capturing every stylish moment on camera.

Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Miranda Kerr all took a break from the fashion presentations at Paris Fashion Week last night to attend a special screening of Carine Roitfeld's new film, Mademoiselle C. Kim left Kanye West at home to attend the bash on the arm of Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci. Meanwhile, Katy Perry was also flying solo at the bash, but she made plenty of friends at the screening's afterparty, chatting with Ciara, Carine, and Fashion Week fixture Anna Dello Russo. Miranda looked like she enjoyed herself at the afterparty as well, mixing around with fellow models Lily Donaldson and Cara Delevingne, whom she walked with at both the Stella McCartney show and the Chanel presentation this week.
Kim has been taking Paris Fashion Week by storm after arriving in the City of Light over the weekend with Kanye. Paris has been very welcoming to the couple, as Kim took to Instagram to show off the new baby presents for North West that she was gifted by various top designers.
Miranda Kerr has basically taken Paris by storm this week! The model has been making the most of her overseas trip by mixing work and play in a big way. Between stomping the runway for A-list designers, Miranda has been attending high-profile events and even taking time for some retail therapy (but not without a couple of outfit changes). She was spotted today juggling bags while leaving the Balmain store and even snapped a few photos with designer Olivier Rousteing before heading out with her purchases and quipped, "Miranda goes Balmainiac."
Miranda touched down in Paris over the weekend and quickly jumped into work, hitting the runway for Stella McCartney on Sunday and Chanel on Monday. She broke from work to support her pal Carine Roitfeld at the Paris screening of her documentary, Mademoiselle C, which also brought out Katy Perry and a cleavage-baring Kim Kardashian. Now that Fashion Week has wrapped up, Miranda will likely head back to NYC to kick off her heels and reunite with her husband, Orlando Bloom. She opened up about their relationship in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, saying, "When I get home, I'm not the boss like I am at work — I slip into a more feminine role."
Fashion Week's finale in Paris meant the street style game was pretty fierce, too. Even on their last lap, the fashion crowd showed no signs of slowing, with street style stars like Taylor Tomasi Hill, Anna Dello Russo, and Hanneli Mustaparta doing their fair share of showstopping outside the tents.
