Haute Couture Fashion Week F/W 2016.2017

In my first post I told you about the fashion week in Milan. Now it’s time to tell you something about my first Haute Couture fashion week in Paris. Unless you are someone famous, rich or work for a magazine it’s practically impossible to get to a regular ready-to-wear fashion show let alone to an haute couture show (haute couture = high fashion, basically the most expensive and exclusive clothes out there). But me and my poseformee team managed to receive some invites and get to some of the shows. This time I was in Paris only with Roxane, it was her last week in France before her return back to China.

I stayed with one of the nicest couchsurfers near Montmartre. We had a walk to Sacré-Cœur, I saw Bistrot La Renaissance where Inglorious Basterds were shot, we visited Louxor cinema and went to a bar to watch football. When I was in Paris for fashion, thousands of football fans were there because of Euro 2016. I even saw the celebrations of french fans after they beat Iceland. I’ll let the pictures and videos speak on my behalf.

Nope, I was not afraid. Not in the slightest…I took my picture and ran away 😀

THE Queen Margaery herself, Natalie Dormer after Schiaparelli show. I regret not to take a picture with her. I had no idea she was at the show so I was surprised when I saw her and couldn’t react so fast 😀

Jessica Chastain, another star guest at Chanel, taking a picture with paparazzis. The paparazzis standing next to me didn’t want to let me pass and take a picture with her. I told that to Jessica and suddenly they let me and even asked if I want the pics they took of me and Jessica 😀 Lovely guys, those paparazzis.

After the first Chanel show I took a walk and stumbled upon the great Patrick Demarchelier on Pont Alexandre III. We had a nice chat, he was going to the show, I was going to stand outside and wait for models, lol. I forgot to tell him I once made a project about him at high school.
