Best of Paris Fashion Week SS18

It goes without saying that perfect, flawless, hydrated skin was a huge look on the runway.

As much as I enjoy many of the new crop of models/instagram stars in fashion these days, I think Olivier was on a slightly slippery slope. A slope that I wasn’t prepared to see Balmain take as a fan from before he even took over the house.

PARIS_FASHION_WEEK_FALL_2015

Paris fashion week was phenomenal. Every season I feel the same way but this fall was truly brilliant.
