Azzedine Alaïa and Carla Sozzani, Paris 2014

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.

Giorgia Tordini at Chanel Couture SS2017

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.

Puffed Up: Barbara Martello at Chanel Couture SS2017

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.

Teddy Quinlivan, After Maison Margiela FW2016

Teddy Quinlivan, After Maison Margiela FW2016

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.
