1.  Models eyebrows encrusted with chunky glitter at Chanel. C’est cool.#PFW

2.  From sheen on fabrics, metallic threading or literal surface embellishment, it’s all about SHINE at Chanel.#PFW

3.  At Chanel a large display of crystals decorates the glittering runway.#PFW

4.  P. Diddy sitting front row at Hakaan. Is he pulling a Kanye this season? At so many shows.#PFW

5.  Strong show at Hakaan. This buzzed about label is already a fashion insider favourite and is poised to blow up.#PFW

6.  Photogs going kookoo for Nicky Hilton at Valentino. While the beautiful Natalia Vodianova sits quietly by.#PFW

7.  Former @flarefashion cover girl Alicia Keys just sat down at Valentino. Major celeb sightings at #pfw this season. Unusual for Paris.

8.  Refined leather pieces with scalloped edging at Valentino. Artisanal embroideries, lace and appliqués on the most ladylike of shapes.#pfw

9.  Valentino signature red wows in a silk crepe jumpsuit, laser cut leather dress and ankle length coat.#pfw

10.  Pony skin bags at Valentino with delicate studding detail.#PFW

11.  At Louis Vuitton. Set looks like a Parisian train station. Soundtrack of people shuffling and walking through.#PFW

12.  Louis Vuitton: genius production! All models escorted off the train by individual porters holding their LV bags.#PFW

13.  Like most Marc Jacobs shows, LV this season was very character driven. Great to tell a story and not just send out a lineup of clothes.#PFW

14.  At Vuitton: elongated, exaggerated, retro inspired silhouettes. Aline coats+skirts layered over pants. OTT pattern, texture, embellishment.

15.  The LV train theme inspired by the brands heritage for travel, luggage and handbags.#PFW

16.  Louis Vuitton was the perfect ending to fashion month! Stellar production, inspiring clothes #pfw
