PARIS….Where the fashion is aspirational and an inspiration. It is as if the women have walked off of the pages of French Vogue, Italian Vogue, W magazine and Harper’s Bazaar and come to life right before your eyes. I have waited my whole life to find women who dress like this on the day to day. I’ve finally found a place where I can dress from my heart and feel 100% comfortable in my level of style. In Paris, you NEVER have to worry about being too dressed up, styled or put together. It is a Fashion maven’s dream come true. Here are some pics from the Chic set in Paris.
Outside of Balmain- the yellow paired with black is very fresh and the gold platforms add a futuristic edge
Carine and Julia...Carine wore these fabulous over the knee brown boots throughout Paris Fashion week.
Outside of Balmain...Loved this girl's use of accessories and color. The purple combined with red popped with the white clutch is very fresh and the circle glasses added a youthful vibe.
Fur is everywhere and is not going away Fall 2010. The combination with the studded drop waist jeans adds a youthful flare and is very Balmain inspired.
This was one of my favorite outfits from the entire season. Very simple, but represented so many trends within one outfit while being so understated. The color combination is key: grey, OLIVE and black. The drop crotch pants, the lace up boots and the use of the belt is one of the most classic representations of Parisian fashion of the moment.
Simple YSL elegance in it's finest. Navy and brown...a color combination so chic and so refined. The wide leg trousers floated when she walked and the brighter blue bag added a Parisian touch.
The pantsuit is making a big comeback. The cropped trouser was everywhere and will be THE pant for fall. Again, the navy feels fresh and leopard prints are used sparingly just to add a minimal touch of print to an elegant look.
This Rachel Zoe wannabe had some serious sass. I mean look at the pose, she was LOVING the attention. What I liked about her look was her use of color with the purple bag and the pink suede Louboutin's. She had all the designer's represented: Chanel necklace, Dolce belt, Balmain jacket, Balenciaga bag and the Louboutin's.
This woman was outside of the Vivienne Westwood show. Her color choices were right on target and the updated trench paired with the red beret was a modern nod to classic French dressing. There was something so special about the way this woman carried herself; elegance and grace on a level that women should aspire to.
This is by no means the best picture of Kate Lamphear, but she is hard to catch. I couldn't possibly not have her in a post referencing the chicest women I saw. The thing that stands out about Kate compared to the others is a level of Cool that the others only touch upon
