Paris Fashion Week Summed Up in 5 Photos
From Cara and Kendall at Chanel to the Zoolander reunion to Jared Leto's photobombing skills, here are the 5 photos you have to see
It’s time to say “Au revoir!” to Paris Fashion Week. Which means saying goodbye to all the runway action, front row buzz and Kim Kardashian’s crazy fashion parade (oh wait, that’s never ending). Below, we rounded up the most memorable snaps from the star-studded week.

Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor: You know you and all your friends have posed for some version of the “Speak no evil, See no evil, Hear no evil” photo. This is the high-fashion version of that, with your favorite movie mixed in, and the world’s most legendarily icy fashion editor getting in on the joke. Yeah, I’m a little obsessed.
Brittany Talarico, Style News Editor: I guess I love this photo so much, because it’s exactly what I imagine happening at a cool Paris Fashion Week dinner party. A group of genetically-blessed, talented, style setters (Gigi Hadid, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Donaldson, and Carine Roitfeld at the Samsung Galaxy party) taking a selfie — and Jared Leto photobombing in the background. Basically, Jared Leto (and his platinum hair) dominated the entire PFW scene.
Sarah Kinonen, Editorial Assistant: We all knew Karl Lagerfeld’s latest muse, Cara Delevingne, would walk in the Chanel show, but we definitely didn’t expect the supermodel to come dressed as a Victorian goth. From the literal smoky eye to her slicked-down ‘do to the elaborate metal choker, Cara’s look is completely crazy — but in a good way. And the juxtaposition of sweetly dressed Kendall (who owned the runway in not one but 16 shows across the globe) next to her just seals my love for this snapshot.
Catherine Kast, Style Writer: When I look back on this week, there are a few moments that stand out: Kendall Jenner’s chic kisses at the Chanel show, Kim Kardashian’s everything (or lack thereof), and Kris Jenner’s half-fur thingy. But believe it or not, there were other things going on this week that didn’t involve the Kardashian family. I’m talking about this glorious white tuft of fluff at the Commes Des Garçons show — really the only thing I wish I could’ve witnessed in person. Fashion reviewers delved into the emotional inspiration behind this epic collection, which is certainly interesting and important, but I loved learning (from Vogue UK) that the models had edge to the side to make way for each other on the runway because of their giant garments. What I’m really trying to say is: If Kim wears this to the next show she attends, I could die a happy girl.
Colleen Kratofil, Writer/Reporter: If I was a model who just walked in 16 shows, I don’t think anything would be better than a drink from bartender Karl at Chanel’s runway-show–turned-French-brasserie. I’m totally impressed how far he stepped up his game from the cookie-snacking at his Métiers d’art show in Salzburg and last year’s epic Chanel supermarket, and judging by his look, he knows he won the “most creative runway” prize yet again (that, or someone shoved the glass in his hand and made him pose for this picture). It’s probably the latter.
