All the Gossip (Girls) from the couture show front rows

Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were just two of the stars checking out the fabulous fashion on display at Chanel, Dior, Armani & more

Day two of the Paris Couture shows saw covetable collections from Chanel, Givenchy and Armani Prive, and a whole host more famous faces hitting the front rows.

But almost distracting from the fabulous fashion on display (wait, we said almost!) were a couple of Gossip Girls sitting pretty at the side of the catwalk.

All eyes were on Blake Lively and Leighton Meester when they put in appearances at the Chanel Couture show, among a host of other fashionable faces including Jessica Alba, Milla Jovovich and newest Gossip Girl Clemence Poesy.

With both girls donning their finest Chanel (naturally) the co-stars went for a Yin-and-yang approach to dressing, with Leighton in a tough-look leather dress, and Blake in pretty pastels from the recent Resort collection.

The guests took in Karl Lagerfeld’s newest collection for the French fashion house – a traditionally demure array of heavily textured two-pieces, button-up coats and layered dresses, with plenty of thick tweed, luxe velvet, fur trims and intricate embroidery.

In contrast, the earlier Armani Prive catwalk was awash with high-octane, glittering gowns, in a colour palette of mesmerising metallics, golds, bronze, amber and shimmering soft caramel. Think plenty of draping silks, luxe satin and fairytale tulle.

The Givenchy Couture collection saw Ricardo Tisci showing off his unimitable genius in the form of ten couture pieces, inspired by surrealist Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, and her passion for religion, anatomy and sensuality…

Cue ten spectacular creations – light silk-tulle gowns with lace overlays and silk fringing, three-dimensional stone-encrusted coats and abstract, hand-painted patterns.
