Paris Fashion Week is finally over, but some moments will stick with us. Click through to see who we think created the looks you’ll be wanting come September.
Yes, the photo at left is from a real runway show in Paris.
Moncler is known for pulling some crazy stunts at their runway shows. In New York, it created a scary-looking army of 370 models on risers; it showed fall 2012 in an ice skating rink; and today, Moncler sent live animals down the runway.
Paris fashion week front-row-newbie Frank Ocean was one of our favorite celebrities to spot this week. The Grammy winner hit up several shows, including Givenchy and Chanel, so when we spotted him at Valentino, we had to grab a moment with him to ask how his first Paris fashion week was going. (We also overheard him tell another reporter that he’d brought along his mom to all the shows. How adorable is that?)
What follows is a rather stumbling awkward interview, because, well, he was just so disarmingly nice and open. Not what you’d expect from a celebrity. Basically, he charmed our pants off. We were fans before but now we’re smitten.
Oh, Chanel. Season after season you give us the best sets, the best accessories, and yes… the best beauty. Fall 2013 was no exception. Former Chanel creative director (now freelancing) Peter Philips came up with yet another original runway look.
Oh, and he also snuck in a peek at a new Chanel polish.

Turns out Cher didn’t even really know who Gareth Pugh was before she attended his show yesterday.
So, um, Cher showed up at Paris fashion week.
She sat front row at Gareth Pugh and when we found out (we were not there) we immediately went to Cher’s twitter, because ever since Gawker tipped us off about the awesomeness of her Twitter feed, we’ve been hooked. Transfixed is maybe a better word for it.
Sadly, she has not tweeted about Pugh’s voluminous-gothic-black-crow collection yet, so we mined her Twitter to pull a few tweets that we imagine might describe her reaction:
