The stunning Clémentine outside Louis Vuitton.
The oh-so-beautiful model/photographer/blogger Hanneli Mustaparta. She is an absolute dream to photograph AND just so nice as well (we like that :)) If you haven't checked out her blog then DO IT! Click here for the link.
p.s the dress is Rad Hourani and the bag? Alexander Wang.
Charles Guislan, 16. If you purchased the latest LOVE magazine (Issue 2) you would have seen Charles in a beautiful story ("Bloodline") photographed by Mert Alas&Marcus Piggott and styled by Katie Grand.

The divine Ms G.
The incredibly stylish and lovely Ms Vika Gazinskaya, designer (check out her collections here), outside the Hermes show in Paris.
Outside Kenzo. Do you note the little suspender belt at the side of her leather skirt?!
p.s. okay, okay, yeah, I know, maybe she has red hair.... :)
The divine Ms D.
Claire Dhelens. This, THIS is what I love so much about French women. So elegant, so chic, so understated....so utterly perfect.
Adore her Chloe lace-up wedge boots:
The divine Ms S.
Ece Sukan, stylist/model/vintage shop owner/Vogue Turkey* Editor-at-Large AND possessor of THE most fabulous legs! Phew!
Check out Ece Sukan Vintage here. I am disappointed I didn't know about her store in Istanbul when we visited earlier this year....
*It launches next April I think.
The divine Ms C.
Christine Centenera, Fashion Editor, Harpers Bazaar (Australia) wearing Josh Goot photographed outside the Collette Dinnigan show! Yay for the Aussies :)))
These photos are why I love Paris so much...and Fashion Week just makes it even more incroyable.
I chased after the girl on the bike above but alas my short little legs couldn't compete with her Vélib' treadly. So we have to be satisfied with just the back view of her neat little jacket, rolled jeans and that fab studded belt.At Louis Vuitton (below):
At the Musée d'Orsay:
Pierre Auguste Renoir, Fernand Halphen, infant (1880)
I loved this Renoir and felt moved to take a photo of it (it isn't naughty to take photos of most artworks in Paris!) for future inspiration........and when I was looking through my LFW photos today I spotted this one:

The divine Miss Alix from The Cherry Blossom Girl.
And just look at her palest blush top! That gorgeous big bow at her waist! And her little Chloe boots! And her dainty dotty tights! And her leather shorty shorts! And that fabulous, comfy cardi slung across her shoulders!
*My exclamation mark use is directly proportional to my excitement level :)
Olga from Vogue Russia.
Adore her flirty little leather pleated skirt, dotty tights and grey t-shirt. And that necklace just polishes things off perfectly.
The gorgeous Shala Monroque outside the Louis Vuitton show. The whole point of the second photo was to show you her marvellous shoes.....and I cut them off! Arggggh. Anyway, love Shala's style.
p.s. Is that a Kiehls goodie bag Shala has slung over her arm?!
The sublime Anna Dello Russo outside the Louis Vuitton show. The day before, at the Chloe show, was the first time I have ever laid eyes on Anna in "real life" and I was just so excited! It is one thing to see photos of these amazing women in magazines and on blogs but quite another to see them in the flesh: to hear them talk, to watch them move, to see what they are wearing up close, to be able to photograph them is simply breathtaking.
p.s. I had an awful "brain freeze" moment just as I was about to take these photos....as I watched Anna walk towards me I thought, okay, now or never: I really want a photo of her in that dress and those shoes (and do you note her diamond earrings?!), I need to ask NOW. So I lurched forward with my camera, took a deep breath and said "Um, Anna, would you mind etc etc etc" but as I said it I was thinking "Oh sh*t, is her name really Anna? Bl*ddy heck, maybe I'm thinking of the other Anna...oh god, how hideously embarrassing- I will be blacklisted forevermore!" Luckily Anna is Anna and all was well :))
p.s.s. I am really conscious of getting people's names right particularly after I watched some paparazzi yelling "Rhianna, Rhianna, over here, over here" as Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child exited the car......

The gorgeous Apphia Michael from Wallpaper magazine. Apphia always manages to look stylish but I particularly liked the way she teamed these three pieces together: the flowing skirt, top and skinny fluro belt. Not in a million years would I have thought of mixing these three pieces together but on Apphia it worked. The skirt looked fabulous when she walked....it sort of wafted behind her: a cloud of peachy, silky fabric.
