Oksana On wore this beautiful sailor look to the Fendi show. The full skirt adds a new twist. Close up of her clear lucite clutch and multicolored manicure, after the jump.

Elena Perminova at Chanel

I’ve photographed Russian former model Elena Perminova at previous fashion weeks, but this season I became totally obsessed with her. Her outfits were totally amazing day after day, including this daring surrealist print worn head to toe at Chanel. The pattern is actually retro telephone buttons. She created an absolute frenzy among the street style photographers when she crossed the street after the Chanel show. Another close-up shot after the jump.  (more…)

Miroslava in Chloe

Miroslava is one of the reasons we look forward to Paris fashion week. She is always so beautifully dressed, often in a lot of color, and never boring. She wore Chloe to the designer’s show Monday in the Tuileries.

Fringed Sweater and Tiger Print Dress, Outside Giambattista Valli

I love the tribal-ness of this outfit – the fringed sleeve of the deconstructed sweater looks like a hank of fur, and the tiger stripes are fierce in their own right. Indeed, preparing for a fashion show is a lot like preparing for battle.

Ulyana Sergeenko at Valentino

The beautiful and stylish Ulyana Sergeenko of Glamour Magazine Russia certainly has a flair for drama, as evidenced by this full length plaid dress and bustier paired with a jaunty hat. The look is goddess of the hunt, high fashion version.

Miroslava Mikheeva Duma at Stella McCartney

Another Russian who’s been making waves at Paris fashion week is fashion correspondent Miroslava Mikheeva Duma, seen here in a fringed suede Prada dress that she described as “old,” aka vintage. Love the saturated fall colors.

Ulyana Sergeenko at Christian Dior

Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko arrived at yesterday’s Christian Dior show in a sweeping black tulle gown. A dramatic entrance indeed! I also loved the vintage needlepoint clutch she carried. If you have a grandmother who liked to needlepoint, you may have one of these in your own fashion archives. Detail shot, after the jump.  (more…)

Vika Gazinskaya at Viktor & Rolf

One of fashion’s daredevils, Russian designer Vika Gazinskaya has rarely been seen in a boring outfit. She plays with line, color, form and material, easily mixing retro – in this case, peep-toe pumps and a silk scarf tied around her hair – with cutting edge – the suit fashioned entirely out of sweatshirt jersey.

Pink Hat and Fur Coat, Outside Lanvin

First off, the hat is great. How often do you see this wide-brimmed Australia outback style hat in the color pink? And paired with this embellished shaggy fur coat, leggings and ’50s style heels, the whole thing cuts a beautiful silhouette. She’s about to ride off into the Paris fashion week sunset. (more…)

Sonia Rykiel and John Galliano

Two shows converged at the industrial warehouse setting of Halle Freyssinet in eastern Paris. Sonia Rykiel’s show was followed immediately by John Galliano’s, and both drew many fashionably-dressed people out in the bitter cold.

Bright Yellow Jacket and Guy in Fur, Sonia Rykiel and John Galli

A great bright yellow parka adds great color in winter. (Despite the fact that it was a March day, it was freezing.) Note the cropped trousers and oversized scarf. On him: black fur. It’s not just for women anymore. Excellent sunglasses on both of them. (more…)
