Paris Fashion Week


Tommy Hilfiger is bringing his TommyNow show back to New York City after taking sell-out collections around the world with exciting Gigi Hadid and Zendaya collaborations.

The Fall 2019 Zendaya x Tommy experimental runway event will be debuted on Sunday, September 8 in Harlem, NYC with the global brand ambassador.

The designer made the brave switch from creating traditional collections featuring his own ready-to-wear designs to a series of collaborations back in 2016, but he's ready to come back to NYC.

The shows have gone on the road, with a theme park built in Los Angeles in honour of the Tommy x Gigi and Tommy x Zendaya collections, as well as staging a circus in London and a race track in Milan. 

There was even a 'Battle of Versailles'-themed dance floor in Paris, because why not? The blowout parties have been hugely successful, but for their Fall show, Hilfiger and Zendaya are coming back to where it all began.

According to a statement from the brand, Zendaya was inspired to display the collection at the iconic Apollo Theatre in Harlem.

"Zendaya's desire to bring TommyNow to Harlem felt like an amazing next step in expressing her vision for the future," Hilfiger said.

"Her statement-making point of view in everything she does is what makes her such an inspiring collaborator – it is honour to continue to provide her with a platform in the fashion industry to share this."

The dazzling show is set to take place this September, only months after Zendaya's powerful debut runway exhibition.

The 22-year-old Spiderman: Far From Home and Euphoria actress has made a splash across the fashion world, to say the least, with brand sponsorships and ambassador offers coming from all angles.

The likes of Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Patti LaBelle and The Supremes have graced the Apollo stage with their presence over the years, so Zendaya x Tommy has big shoes to fill.

Seeing as the pair already managed to book Grace Jones and a roller disco for their debut show at Paris Fashion Week, we're sure they've got something magical up their couture sleeves.


Jennifer Lawrence has been absolutely loved UP with art dealer Cooke Maroney for almost a year, and her publicist announced the pair's engagement earlier this month.

We're delighted for the 28-year-old Oscar winning actress, but we're really just DYING to see the ring. J-Law has been photographed with it multiple times since the proposal, but today is the first time a high-resolution snap has been taken of the ring.

From grainy, distance pictures to a crystal clear image, we have Dior to thank for it. Lawrence was announced as the face of the brand seven years ago, and she appeared at their Paris Fashion Week show today sporting the dazzling rock on her finger.

The actress attended the Fall/Winter 2019 Dior presentation alongside famous faces like Cara Delevigne and Karlie Kloss, and showed off her new accessory.

Maroney's ring is minimal in design, with a large emerald-cut diamond hanging off the platinum band. It's arguably a more modern take on a classic combo, as the stone isnit centred on the band.

Lawrence wore the ring with a tailored A-line short dress and plaid heels for the event, and the ring is speculated to cost around $200,000. It's roughly four to five carats, so Maroney didn't come to play.


A post shared by Dior Official (@dior) on

Andrew Fox, President of SuperJeweler.com, gave ELLE the lowest carat estimate for the engagement ring;

"Jennifer's ring, which is surprisingly modest, appears to be a three-to-four carat emerald shape diamond," he said. "While I'm certain that it's of very fine colour and clarity, Cooke Maroney most likely paid over $200,000." WOWZA.

She was first spotted wearing it while the couple were on a date in New York City at Raoul's in early February. "It was a giant rock," as a witness quoted at the time. "They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it. The ring was very noticeable.” I mean, it's huge, so it's hard not to notice.

Lawrence was previously in relationships with Nicholas Hoult, Chris Martin and Mother! director Darren Aonofsky. This is her first engagement, but Lawrence opened up about marriage to Vogue in 2015;

"I can't wait to be married. I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f*ck it up."

When asked about bridesmaids by Vanity Fair in 2016, interestingly she said; "Weddings rock, but… there needs to be a bridesmaids' union. It's horrendous… If I do ever get married, I don't think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?"

We can't WAIT for this wedding, it's sure to be a big celebrity bash with many a famous face.

Literally everyone in the audience of Valentino's revolutionary Paris Fashion Week haute couture show bawled like a baby.

For one, the iconic supermodel who has been slaying the game for three decades returned to the iconic house of fashion after FOURTEEN YEARS to close the show- Her Royal Highness Naomi Campbell.

Celine Dion is moved to tears by haute couture relatively often, she's an appreciator of art. However, this show moved both Dion and Campbell to tears for it's celebration of black beauty.

Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli designed the stunning collection, which saw each model inspired by a beautiful flower, and featured bold and bright colours, diversity and petal eyelashes.

Celine Dion is an ebullient presence at every fashion week she attends, giving thumbs up to paparazzi when she's impressed and occasionally jumping for joy.

She couldn't help the tears from falling watching Piccioli's work, modelled by women of every ethnicity, but when Naomi walked down the catwalk in a sheer black dress, Dion WEPT.

It was one of couture's most diverse line-ups ever, with 39 black women walking. Picciolo said of his collection;

“Couture is the way that you can evaluate the uniqueness of life, but it was never meant to be for black women. It was meant for just white women. This is a celebration of black beauty.” 

Campbell wept silently as Picciolo was given a standing ovation at the finale, she has witnessed the inherent racism in the industry since she began.

The iconic supermodel broke down barriers, and was one of the first black women on the covers of high fashion magazines and on their runways.

The billowing gowns were modelled by Alek Wek, Liya Kebede, Adut Akech, Duckie Thot, Akiima, Sabah Koj and Ayak Veronica, among other powerful, high fashion faces.

The soundtrack was soul icon Roberta Flack’s The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face, which matched the emotional ambience perfectly.

The subversion of the racial norm was clearly hugely important to Naomi Campbell, who praised the designer on her Instagram;

“Congratulations on a historical moment, done in such an elegant manner no words needed to be said. Blessed to be part of such an incredible, spellbinding moment.”

Paris fashion week has one of the worst records when it comes to casting diverse models.

Data gathered by The Fashion Spot revealed that just 15.6 percent of models in the Spring 2015 shows were women of colour, making Paris the least inclusive of any fashion week.

It's easy to see why both Celine and Naomi were overcome with emotion, given the immense occasion.

What's a massive, multi-million-euro fashion house to do when every fashion show concept has been done before?

Get a massive, smoke-emulating rocket ship to take off in the middle of fashion week, obviously.

Chanel just amazed show-goers with a giant replica of a spaceship at Paris Fashion Week, which blasted off surrounded by models rocking Karl Lagerfeld's latest looks. 


A post shared by Harper's BAZAAR (@harpersbazaarus) on

The show was out of this world thanks to the intergalactic stunt, which saw the giant ship lift off, omitting billowing clouds of smoke.

The ten-second countdown created a tense atmosphere, as the Chanel logo-emblazoned rocket prepared to take off, making it the perfect backdrop for the astronomical clothes. 

Chanel ambassadors Pharrell Williams, Cara Delevingne and Lily-Rose Depp were all in attendance, and sat front row to take in the space-themed event. 

The collection itself also paid homage to all things intergalactic, with metallic boots, helmet-like necklines and embellished goggles hitting the catwalk. 


A post shared by CHANEL (@chanelofficial) on

Today is the last day of fashion week, and Chanel clearly wanted to end the festivities with a bang.

We're not sure anyone will be forgetting this fashion stunt for quite a while.  



Bella Hadid has taken over the fashion world, and no runway is complete without her or her blonde bombshell of a sister taking to the stage.

It seems that H&M feels this way, as the high street fashion house booked both sisters for their Paris Fashion Week show last night.

While the siblings took to the catwalk, a particular ex of Bella's was also booked to perform on the night. 


A post shared by Sophie Ismaïl (@storygramming) on

The exes crossed paths at the show, but after their previous run-in at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the pair kept their cool. 

According to E!, the model didn't move to the singer's serenade or catch his eye, and instead kept her gaze forward ike a true professional. 

The pair began dating back in back in April 2015 when Bella agreed to pose for the Canadian musician's album artwork for the Beauty Behind The Madness.

The Starboy singer and the super model reportedly split last year due to hectic work schedules. 

The Weeknd has since started publicly dating singer Selena Gomez.




In a shocking incident that understandably left her "badly shaken," Kim Kardashian was this morning ambushed by armed men at the luxurious Parisian apartment where she was staying for Fashion Week.  

Located on the prestigious 7 Rue Tronchet in the chic 8th arrondissement, the reality TV star was subjected to the raid at around 2am – reportedly being tied up in the bathroom while the thieves made off with €10m worth of jewellery. 

Local media in France furthermore says that two mobile phones containing "personal information," as well as cash totaling €1,000 and a designer handbag were all taken. 

Now, images of the apartment where the attack took place have begun to emerge. 

Favoured by the likes of the Mick Jagger, Leonardo Di Caprio, Madonna and Prince, the property boasts a total of nine high-end short-term stay homes and is branded as 'Hôtel Partiulier'. However, such is its uber-exclusive status that it doesn't have a website or publicly-available contact details. 

Costing around €26,500 a month, according to thesun.co.ukTMZ.com says that during the robbery Kim begged the men for her life and told them she had two young children.

Paris police said it is employing "all possible means to solve the case and arrest the perpetrators". The inquiry is being handled by the serious crimes unit, la brigade de répression du banditisme, and the Paris judicial police.

After assisting them with their investigation, Kim herself has now returned to the US to be with her husband, Kanye West, and children North, 3, and Saint, ten months. 



Last week we were absolutely appalled when Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk grabbed Gigi Hadid as she came out from modelling at Milan Fashion Week.

Well, now the creep has gone and done the same thing again, and this time his aim was Kim Kardashian.


A video posted by Mario Dedivanovic (@makeupbymario) on

Kim touched down in Paris this week for Paris Fashion Week and while she was making her way to a show, Vitalii tried to grab her ass and tried to kiss it. DISGUSTING.

We have to say though, Kim's security team jumped in way quicker than Gigi's and pushed him to the ground as Kim ran away.

He is violating her. COP ON.


When it comes to Zendaya Coleman's Paris Fashion Week debut, it's all about the numbers. 

Within two days, Ms Coleman donned five outfit (and extreme hair) changes, to rock Paris like no other. 

Sitting front row at Vivienne Westwood and Emanuel Ungaro, the Disney star blossomed and without question, the 19-year-old has broken out as a true style star.

Check out five of her amazing outfits:




With Fashion Month drawing to a close, we saw some of the best collections from designers all over the world.

As well as crushing on new season style, we were also keeping on top of hair and make-up trends, but we're not sure about the latest trend seen at Paris Fashion week.

Behind-the-scenes at Alexander McQueen, hair stylist Guido Palau was responsible for the new technique called hair sewing. 

Allure spoke to the man in question and asked him about the breathtaking updo he had created for the models. 

"We're using Redken products to give the hair some guts, and needle and thread. That's it."

"Sarah Burton [designer] wanted the hair to feel very natural and soft and feminine, but also artisanal, since a lot of the collection is based on artisanal workmanship."

After creating a messy middle part, Guido fed the needle and thread through the hair, starting at the hairline on either side of the part and letting the thread knot as he went to create tiny loops and lumps.

"I wanted there to be interest when you looked at the models from the front, not just the back," he explained.



Kim Kardashian might come across as the most body confident person EVER but she revealed this week that she has her own image hang-ups too.

The reality star is currently in Paris enjoying the end of Fashion Week and supporting her husband Kanye as he plays a series of concerts for the Louis Vuitton Foundation.

With her sister Kendall taking to the catwalks for Chanel and Balmain among others, Kim has an instant foot in the door with all the PFW models – but she revealed she's been finding it a little difficult to stay positive.

Sharing a photo on Instagram of herself, Kendall, Joan Smalls, Lily Donaldson, Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid, Kim wrote, "Not insecure at all standing next to these super models":

Although she looks downright fabulous and just as gorgeous as the other ladies in the picture, we can see how body insecurities would rear their ugly head when you're suddenly surrounded by a gang of stick-thin supermodels.

Whatever about Kim's feelings, Kanye is more than delighted by his wife's curves, if the photo she posted on Instagram just minutes beforehand is anything to go by:

Those two can't get enough of each other!



Everyone at the Valentino show in Paris this morning got an amazing surprise when two VERY familiar models took to the catwalk to close the show.

Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller are reuniting soon for Zoolander 2, and they gave us a serious blast from the past by recreating one of the iconic scenes from the first film.

The two gave their best blue steel efforts as they took to the catwalk to re-create the "walk-off" between Derek and Hansel – though sadly David Bowie wasn't there to judge them this time….

Look at them go! 

We cannot WAIT for the second film to come out, but for now we're going to be watching this clip on repeat. And the original one too, of course:

So good!



From being mobbed outside one of her shows to this, we have to say it looks as if Kendall Jenner is having a very frightening fashion week in Paris!

The young model was out for a stroll with her friend Gigi Hadid when a female fan came running towards her, managing to get past security before jumping on Kendall trying to kiss her. 

Kendall, visibly shocked by the fan, tries to hold her arms to her face while security remove the girl. 

The photos come only days after a video of Kendall almost being trampled by fans outside her Balmain runway show was obtained by TMZ – we have to say it looks as if Kendall’s fame is reaching dizzying heights in France!

As the second youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner household is well-known in her family as being the ‘shy one’, we’re not so sure this scary part of fame is going down well with Kendall. 

A similar ‘dark side’ to fame was seen yesterday, when a video of Taylor Swift being forced to walk backwards to escape paparazzi was released.
