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.
Isn’t that nice? 🙂
The majestic Sacré-Cœur
This place is always crowded.
At the top of Louxor cinema.
The place where we watched the Germany – Italy match had a czech beer Kout.
Our first show of japanese designer Yuima Nakazato, the collection was inspired by Icelandic landscape and auroras.
Model Sara Sampaio leaving Alberta Ferretti show.
Our second show was that of chinese designer Lan Yu. We managed to get seats in the front row 😀
We also made it to the backstage.

Wherever Bella Hadid is there are always paparazzis and plenty of her fans.
Stella Maxwell is also a fan favourite.
My favourite is definitely Iselin Steiro so I had take a picture with her.
Saskia de Brauw came on a bicycle.
Josephine Skriver greeted her fans with hugs.
The best moment of Versace show, beside meeting Iselin of course, was the security guys taking a selfie 🙂
French fans celebrating the victory on Euro over Iceland. I went to a bar to join my couchsurfer but it was overcrowded, I couldn’t hear a single word and I ended up with spilled beer on my hair 😀
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 😀
Pink carpet for the guests of Schaparelli HC show.
I was having a field day at Place Vendôme 😉
The duo of happy photographers.
Another day, another show. This time On Aura Tout Vu.

On this picture you can see Marion Cotillard or more like just half of Marion, one of my favourite actresses btw, posing for photographers.

Baptiste Giabiconi, model and Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, was a guest at Chanel.
Will Smith with his daughter Willow.
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.
Here is a picture by trendbubbles which I accidentally found on the internet 😀
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.
With Sasha Luss after Chanel show.
Argentinian Magda Laguinge also walked for Chanel.
At the Tuileries.
Yanina Fashion had gorgeous and wearable clothes at their show. The colection was called The legend of the bird of happiness and it was inspired by russian fairy tales.
My favourite show when it comes to clothes and that catering!
The show was held at the Russian embassy in Paris, it truly was a wonderful place.
Zhenya Katava after Armani Privé. We missed Cate Blanchett going to Armani show because we were still at Yanina Couture but I don’t regret it a bit 😛
People coming to Alexandre Vauthier HC show. We left to go to Vogue Paris Foundation Gala which was nearby to take pics of attendees. Later we found out that they let people in also without invitation. Oh, bugger!
Sunset in Paris. What can be more beautiful? Maybe only Midnight in Paris.
The last day of shows. We couldn’t resist to take a selfie with Vlada Roslyakova after Elie Saab.
English stunner Alexina Graham cannot miss a Jean Paul Gaultier show.

Last show of couture week was Valentino. Zoë Kravitz was one of the guests.
As was Mr. Valentino himself.
I asked for a smile from czech model Bára Podzimková and I got it 🙂
Brazilians Lorena Maraschi and Isabella Ridolfi after Valentino. Lorena was taking a video of the madness called fashion week. We met her in the metro after the show and had a lovely chat.
After the last show we held to our tradition of “all you can eat” sushi.
The sushi place was near Panthéon.
This was Roxane’s last day in Paris and mine as well. We enjoyed fashion week the best we could.
Me and my friends ready for another adventure. Next stop: Portugal.
