One of my favorite model-off-duty looks outside the couture shows in Paris. Model Cris Herrmann isn’t wearing anything particularly expensive but shows great personal style with a long red silk scarf tied once at the neck, oversize cloth bag and baggy (vintage?) jeans. Très chic.
Jeepers, creepers! We were all mesmerized by these Yazbukey x Linda Farrow sunglasses on Leaf Greener outside the Chanel couture show in Paris.

I am loving the chic take on utilitarian, garage-style jumpsuits on the streets now. Anya Ziourova wore a blue one by Rosie Assoulin to the Chanel couture show in Paris.
Raf Simons’ tenure at Dior has been marked by the same bold color statements he employed at Jil Sander. Nicole Warne wore a brilliant saffron-colored silk Dior vest to the couture show in Paris. Look for longer hemlines in coats and vests come fall, as cropped jackets disappear in favor of a more flowing silhouette.
The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in New York air conditioning. The solution: silk! A long silk dress like this one by Leonard Paris on Maryna Kovaltchuk moves beautifully from hot city streets to cold air conditioned spaces, keeping the wearer comfortable all the while.
If you ever need inspiration to wear short shorts, just hang around a bunch of models in the summer – though of course, not all of us have legs like theirs. Vanessa Moody wore white denim shorts with a black top after the Dior show on a hot day in Paris.
I guess it’s the prep in me, but I’m always a sucker for bright colored pants in the summer, like these bright pink ones seen on Lorena Vergani at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris.
A pretty look on Paula Goldstein in pink florals by Ulyana Sergeenko outside the couture show in Paris.
It’s easy to forget how totally crazy the scene outside the Paris fashion shows has gotten when you’re in the middle of it for a couple days. Scene from an average evening: Olivia Palermo entering the Fendi couture show, flanked by bodyguards and surrounded by photographers, tourists, selfie-seeking teenagers and PETA protesters.
Fashion journalist Blue Carreon wore his signature color – including floral print pants – to the Orley show in New York.
