Karl Langerfeld's Chanel collection was once grabbed rave reviews, amidst a recreation of Versaille's renaissance gardens inside the giant Grand Palais. The fashion week also has it share of press-grabbing attention, with Jean Paul Gaultier sending the voluptous singer Beth Ditto down the runway to open his rock themed extravaganza, while pregnant glowing Aussie model Miranda Kerr walked for Balenciaga.


While the share of media stunts ensued, including Jean Paul Gaultier's farewell show for Hermès which saw dessage horses performing under chandeliers, fashion talent wa sin abundance. From the deconstructed outfits at Chanel, with frayed edges and giving the Chanel brand an innovative twist, to Yves Saint Laurent's creative director Stefano Pilati taking tailoring to an immeccable new level in women's fashion. John Galliano's collection also proved theatrically brilliant with an ode to seductive boudoir.
