Louis Vuitton lightened things up in Paris after what was a rather interesting, complex yet dark week in terms of collection moods. Models wore little beehives and big headbands with straight shift dresses in checked black and white and pops of sunshine yellow in a very uplighting 'Mod' styled collection.

Miuccia Prada's spring offering for Miu Miu was very interesting and unlike much of what has been touted around in Paris. The super loose jacket shapes were there, but the crinkled fabric texture and print were both a breath of fresh air for Paris.

Taylor Swift sat front row at Elie Saab, along with a legion of Middle Eastern glamour puss fans. The red carpet favourite showed his penchant for glamour and sex appeal in lots of lace and sheer panels, so sexy and see-through that underwear was definitely not an option. The most interesting pieces though, I felt, were those that had graphic black lines and fluro ink splatter patterns.
