Most likely to be on next season's X Factor: Stephane Rolland devotee Cheryl Cole didn't make it to the designer's couture show today, but be on the lookout for some of his amazing sculptural creations to end up on your telly next summer. We especially like the white dresses accented with silver or gold metallics.
Couture, Italian-style?: According to WWD, Gucci's Frida Giannini is currently working on a debut couture collection. But you won't see it on the Paris runways next season - it will be available on a by-appointment basis for celebrities' red-carpet needs. We're looking forward to seeing Gucci with about 10,000 times more bling.
Model moment: Newly engaged Lara Stone hit the Chanel runway today in a gorgeous white frilly chiffon number. Inevitably, it led us to speculate about her gown choices for the upcoming nuptials...we just hope David Walliams isn't considering the metallic number Lagerfeld's "groom" wore at the end of the show.
Out of this world: While some of Armani's designs were truly celestial - the crescent moon shapes that adorned suits and dresses were a lovely touch - his organza orb that fully encased the model was more girl in the bubble than red carpet glory. And if a model can't pull it off, what hope does that give to us mere mortals (not that we're within purchasing range of any couture items)?
Beauty obsession: Yesterday's dramatic two-tone hair at Alexis Mabille has given way to today's white highlights, painted onto blondes and brunettes at Chanel, before it was bunched into two enormous Minnie Mouse-style buns and accessorised with a chiffon bow. Completely OTT but fabulous.
