Paris Haute Couture Week: All The Pictures

Couture week in Paris was pretty near perfect. Designers glittered the runway shows with jaw-dropping creations that kept every fashion-forward onlooker at the edge of their seats.

The Africa-inspired print (and the fez frenzy) a la Armani, the lace and lavish sequin embellishment from Elie Saab and THAT bridal gown. Too beautiful.

As for Jean Paul Gaultier bringing back the beehive, along with fish tail ruffles and a whole lot of patchwork - well, diversity's always good, right?

Thank you Paris Couture Week - you've been a total dream.
