How do you mix rock n roll personal style with an invitation to the Dior couture show? Top your leather biker pants with a white fur jacket, of course. Stylist Barbara Martello looked super chic in black and white at the Paris couture shows.

Monochrome: Christina Pitanguy at Dior Couture SS2015

Christina Pitanguy at Dior Couture SS2015

This beautiful dove gray is a favorite color of mine, and it looks especially good done from head to (almost) toe in Dior. Christina Pitanguy created a nice bit of contrast by finishing off the gray midi skirt with forest green boots.

Model Magda Laguinge headed out from the Schiaparelli show in a fur coat and bell bottom jeans. This wasn’t the only time during couture that we saw her in a ’70s look – cute and boho.

Paris Couture Week for @nytimesfashion

nytimes-street-style-couture-SS2015-2-web

I just got back from Paris, where I covered street style outside the Paris S/S 2015 couture shows for the New York Times Styles section – check out the slideshow of all my street style photos for them here! All of these photos appeared on Instagram at @nytimesfashion, where the Styles section publishes up-to-the minute fashion photography from around the world – definitely an account worth following. If you missed it, you can also follow me on Instagram at @gastrochic for yet more street style and food photos.

New in this street style slideshow is my photo of Carla Bruni attending one of the shows. The former first lady of France wore skin tight leather pants on the first day of Paris couture… what a way to make an entrance!

Sarah Ann Murray at Schiaparelli Couture SS2015

Sarah Ann Murray of The Rake magazine layered a plaid cape over a plaid jacket at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris, to great visual effect. And also practical warmth, as mentioned in today’s New York Times Thursday Styles, where my photo of Irene Kim in layered coats illustrates the point!

Another cool detail we saw several times on Paris couture week attendees: decorative leather buckles at the neck of jackets and capes.

The Return of the Turtleneck: Linda Tol at Ann Demeulemeester SS2015

Linda Tol at Ann Demeulemeester SS2015

The return of the humble turtleneck as a fashion It item never ceases to surprise, whether it’s Sharon Stone wearing one to the Oscars in 1996 or a whole new generation of fashion enthusiasts embracing them now. Trendsetter Linda Tol incorporated a turtleneck sweater into a winter white outfit outside the Ann Demeulemeester show. Added bonus: they’re actually warm.

Elisabeth Erm at Rochas FW2014

Elisabeth Erm at Rochas FW2014

Love this sporty but urban look on model Elisabeth Erm after the Rochas show last winter. Again you can see when the mercury really drops, the fashion set layers a leather jacket underneath a winter coat.

Natalie Joos at Rochas FW2014

Natalie Joos at Rochas FW2014A great play on texture and stripes by Natalie Joos at last winter’s Rochas show. Wrapping oneself in oversize knits is a concept that really appeals to me right now.

Sporty Chic: Elina Halimi at Tommy Hilfiger FW2014

Elina Halimi at Tommy Hilfiger

Loved this classic American sportswear look on Elina Halimi outside the Tommy Hilfiger show in NYC. There’s a twist though: that fairisle sweater by Saint Laurent is embellished with pale sequins. Celine bag.

Bundled Up: Irene Kim at Tory Burch FW2014

Irene Kim at Tory Burch

I still remember this bitterly cold morning last February. Model Irene Kim handled it with style, wearing a black leather jacket like a cardigan under an oversized fur coat. The white dress underneath is a nice sign of spring.

Caroline Issa at Philosophy FW2014

Caroline Issa at PhilosophyThis outfit, like Caroline Issa herself, manages to be both cute and sophisticated at once. Love the black and white contrast and stylistic contrast between the cuddly hat and sleek black culottes and boots.

Winter White: Eva Chen at Derek Lam SS2015

Eva Chen at Derek Lam

New York women are not afraid to pile on the layers when the mercury drops. Case in point: Eva Chen during last year’s freezing cold fashion week, bundled up in winter white and silver sneakers, still looking chic.
