Fashion Week madness has begun with the fash-pack taking up front row across the channel for a week-long extravangza of haute couture.

The super-glam proceedings kicked off with Christian Dior. Models of the moment Karlie Kloss and Lindsay Wixson, were among those to showcase John Galliano’s dramatic silhouettes. Strong makeup and Forties – style hair added a vintage feel, with Galliano himself adopting a 1960s matador look for his traditional final bow.

Next up was a star-studded Etam luxe lingerie show, with Kate Moss, Eva Herzigova and Natalia Vodianova in prime viewing position. And there was much more than A-list underwear on show – with performances from Beth Ditto,Karen Elson, Boy George and Mark Ronson each popping up on the catwalk.

Armani Prive was architectural in design, with metallics, galatic glitter and Philip Treacy’s flying saucer hats to finish off the looks.

Chanel later opened it’s door to the usual influx of A-list including Diane Kruger, Kirsten Dunst and Alexa Chung. Once again, Karl Lagerfield provided a fashion masterpiece of pastels and pinks, with an appearance by the man himself on the sweeping staircase finale.

Today sees Jean Paul Gautier, Ellie Sabb and Valentino take to the catwalk, so we’re expecting to spot more of our favourite fashionistas and plenty of next season’s red carpet looks…
