Dior, Versace And Hieraix: Paris Couture Week Is Here

If the dress maketh the woman, then said dress has to be couture. And preferably Christian Dior.

Paris Couture Week has started and it's already stop-you-in-your-tracks beautiful. Here's to four days of opulence and mastery from Chanel, Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier and Valentino (to name just a fabulous few.)


Twirl through our gallery of shows that have set the standard on day one: Versace was vibrant with fluoro pieces complete with sheer trains, Clarisse Hieraix's ruched asymmetric gowns made us gasp and Dior was, as predicted, to die for.
