Donatella Versace at Anthony Vaccarello

Who doesn't love a Donatella Versace spotting? Anthony Vaccarello, the newly appointed creative director of Versace-owned label Versus, made his fashion momma proud for fall by designing a very-Versace collection for his namesake brand. The designer embroidered his signature crotch-skimming skirts with stars -- lots of them -- and added pleats and sleek safety pins to several looks. The coolest pieces, though, were the metal-fringed frocks that chimed as models walked down the runway.  -- Lauren Sherman

Boobs at Jacquemus

Simon Porte Jacquemus's fall collection was styled with hand-made masks, painted faces and plenty of bare chests -- which have already given social media plenty to talk about this #PFW. And it's only day one. As for the clothes: Jacquemus turned out a mix. There were the childlike, exaggerated pieces that make him such an interesting young designer, such as giant wader pants in velvet and colorful, super-sized grommets on coats. Other looks, however, were a little too "been there, done that," like a cold-shoulder coat, a surrealist halter made out of two gloves and straight-jacket details on several tops. But there's no denying that Jacquemus can make irresistible things. His boiled-wool shawl-cape-contraption was cozy and statement-making and cool. More, please. -- Lauren Sherman

In just a few seasons, Coperni has become an acclaimed fashion brand, nominated for the 2015 LVMH Prize and crowned with an ANDAM fashion award. For fall, designers Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant came up with a collection inspired by all things circular. The influence could be seen in a patchwork dress made of round pieces of leather as well as the sculptural heels, designed in collaboration with renowned shoemaker Massaro. -- Margault Antonini
