Fashionistas all over the world are well aware of the fact that Paris Fashion Week (Haute Couture) took place this week. If you are the leggings and sweater type of person with not much of an interest in fashion, you’ve probably unwillingly seen the hype on social media.
Fashion Week is known for it’s magnificent, flamboyant, and somewhat strange creations. If you are a fashion lover, you’ve probably gotten loads of new ideas to spice up your closet or wear some of your favorite accessories in a brand new way. If not, you are about to see what all the hype was about. Are these outfits worth looking at? Definitely. Practical? Absolutely not, but that’s no reason not to have a look.
Here are some of my favorite creations that were seen on the runway. Get ready to feast your eyes on some and roll your eyes at others. Either way, it’s worth looking at.
Cool and Casual with a Bit of Sparkle, Yes Please!
This Ralph & Russo piece is sleek, it’s simple, and you can actually walk in it. The sequencing detail might seem a bit too much for some, but take away that and the massive hat, and this outfit could easily fit in at a formal gathering.
Simple Never Looked Prettier
This piece from Antonio Grimaldi, caught my eye because it’s probably one of the most practical outfits that were featured. It’s an easy, not-trying-too-hard look that will turn heads.
Live, Love, Sparkle!
For anyone who loves all the colors of the rainbow, this dress from Georges Hobeika is worth feasting your eyes on. Just look at all that sparkle!
A Gown Fit for a Princess
This piece, also from Georges Hobeika, looks like a Disney Princess-inspired gown. Seriously, every woman should have a chance to dress like this.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who is the Fairest of Them All?
This Tony Ward creation looks like it could’ve come straight out of a fairytale. The prettiest “villain” dress you’ll ever see.
Sassy, Classy, and a Bit Bad-Assy
When you look at this Dany Atrache creation, two words come to mind: totally badass. Nothing makes you walk a little straighter than a dress that makes you look like a total goddess.
Leggings are for Everyone, Everywhere
This Givenchy piece is for all the Bad Yogi’s out there who love to live in their leggings and sigh at the thought of having to put on something remotely formal. Who said you can’t wear leggings and still look super put together?
Statements… Statements Everywhere!
Something else that popped up at Fashion Week were dresses featuring bold messages from designers Viktor & Rolf. The Indian Express reported that these dresses quickly went viral online with women around the world loving them. The phrase “wear something that makes a statement” has now become the most literal it has ever been.
These avant-garde styled dresses in pastel colors, featuring voluminous layers of ruffles and tulle, bore various statements like “Sorry I’m late, I didn’t want to come”, “Give a damn”, and “I’m not shy, I just don’t like you”. Social media users jumped on their accounts to give their two cents about this new trend.

One can’t deny that this is a pretty cool trend. Now, all we need is some of these dresses featuring messages like “Namaste” and “I like Bad Yogis and I cannot lie”, right?
