PARIS FASHION WEEK via INSTAGRAM - March 4th, 2013

And another installment of Life via Instagram during Paris Fashion Week! This time I check out the very first Ungaro collection by my friend Fausto Puglisi and discover that leopard print and polka dots will indeed be a ‘thing’ next season. I also go to the highly anticipated Saint Laurent Paris show, which is perfectly ’90s grunge-inspired. I personally think my friend Behati Prinsloo should be the new face of it!

  1. Supporting my amazingly talented friend Fausto Puglisi, who shows his first ever collection for Ungaro today in Paris!

  2. Print, shapes, shoulders, color! All the iconic charm of Emanuel Ungaro under the guiding hand of Fausto Puglisi. UNGARO IS BACK!

  3. Polka dots + leopard print + color. New trend alert! From Ungaro’s F/W 13 collection by Fausto Puglisi.

  4. Saint Laurent Paris at the Grand Palais - one of my all time favorite venues for Paris Fashion Week.

  5. Flannel, grunge and baby doll dresses galore at Saint Laurent Paris. Kurt and Courtney would have loved this one. 

  6. My last look in Paris courtesy of Fausto Puglisi. It was so nice to sit and watch some shows after 18 seasons of walking in them!

In this installment of Life via Instagram, I have the privilege to sit front row and watch some of the Paris Fashion Week shows for the first time in 18 seasons. I catch up with old friends like Jean Paul Gaultier, who tells me an amazing secret, and I discover who’s on Ellen Von Unwerth’s iPhone screensaver!

MILAN TO PARISIn 7 years (and 13 seasons) of catwalks, today was the first time I’ve walked for Giorgio Armani. To my surprise, I was honored to be asked to OPEN the show!! With Tina Turner in the front row?! This also marks the last show I’ll be doing in Milan. I’ve had a great time back here after 2 years away. For all my pictures go HERE. I’m now packing up the hotel room and jumping on a flight to… Paris!! I will be walking in Paris Fashion Week and I thought you might like to see the show card my Paris agency Marilyn has been sending out…
