We've already seen New York, Milan, and London put together their best collections to compete in our first-ever March Madness tournament.

Now, the giants of Paris will take each other on. Some of the biggest names in fashion are in the mix--Celine, Louis Vuitton, Chloe, and Dior all made the bracket.

They're our closest match-ups yet!

CELINE vs LOUIS VUITTON

Where Celine was quiet and understated, Louis Vuitton was sensual and showy--but being completely different didn't stop this match from going into an extra round.

Marc Jacobs went for the three pointers at Louis Vuitton with an elaborate set and a special appearance by Kate Moss. But this time, voters blew the whistle on repeating themes--allowing Phoebe Philo's "forward thinking" collection to run up the score.

Jacobs will have to concentrate on his New York win, as Philo takes this one for Celine.

WINNER: Celine

CHLOE vs DIOR

This match-up was a real nail-biter.

For every point Chloe scored for wearability, Dior matched it with fantasy. Then judges started giving out ticky-tack fouls: Chloe was deemed too girly by one voter, while another claimed Dior lacked coolness.

But it's a heartbreaking loss for Chloe fans, as Raf Simons shoots a last minute basket in overtime.

"Dior was like a fashion dream," said Dhani, "and sometimes that's what wins."

WINNER: Dior
