R.I.P. Azzedine Alaïa, one of the last true master couturiers. He was a familiar sight during Paris couture week, when he walked into shows without any fanfare, almost always with his dear friend Carla Sozzani. One interesting thing to note about this photo – these were their outfits of choice for July. Mid-summer or not, black was always the order of the day.

Leave it to mix master Veronika Heilbrunner to combine a Fendi coat with a Metallica tee, as seen here at the Chanel couture show.
Leopard-print pants mixed with a fur-trimmed jacket give a feline spin to this look on Giorgia Tordini at the Chanel couture show. The thing that takes it to the next level is the white shoes and bag in winter – a daring choice that really works.
Tina Leung wore a great combination of a Raf Simons puffer over a Courreges black and white jacket to Paris couture week. Her hair and makeup are Dior.

Just when we were getting used to the wide-legged pants silhouette, it seems to be moving back in the other direction. Spotted on several influential guests at the Paris shows, including stylist Barbara Martello, were big puffer jackets like this one by Carmen March with skinny pants or even stirrup leggings like these.

Natasha Zinko brought a pop of color to the Elie Saab couture show in Paris – and a ’70s look replete with purple glasses and blouse and yellow velvet pants. Expect more wild colors this fall as traditional autumn colors give way to the whole rainbow.
Whimsical, colorful prints are going to be big this fall season, and we got a sneak preview of just how beautiful they can be with Sofia Sanchez de Betak’s star-printed look at the Valentino couture show in Paris.

Victoria’s Secret model Maria Borges exited the Armani Privé show in Paris in subtle but colorful runway makeup, shell choker, and the natural hairstyle that has become her trademark. Not only a strong beauty statement, but perfect for summer.

It’s hard to resist model Teddy Quinlivan, who exits every show in a quirky outfit in a style that’s entirely her own and puts on a huge magazine-shoot-esque performance for us photographers. This move was all Teddy. After the Margiela show in Paris, she leapt past in a pale pink bustier, cropped black jeans and a jaunty military hat, still in her runway makeup by Pat McGrath. Wow.
