Oh did you think I meant me in the front row? No, *I* was not in the front row with Paris Vogue editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt, sillies! Other people were though, including her chic assistant Geraldine Saglio and Suzy Menkes, veteran fashion reporter for the International Herald Tribune. I was unfamiliar with Carlos Miele before I started attending fashion week, but he’s quickly becoming one of my favorite designers. His dresses are pretty but the main reason is because Emmanuelle Alt always shows up. Last season I took this photo of her at his show (That was back when I was trying to emulate her by going without a handbag. This season I’m blissfully with handbag). Earlier this week I snapped the one above. She and her assistant exude that intimidating chicness that French women are so good at.
Also check out my gallery below of some of my favorite looks from the collection. The show kicked off dramatically with three women tromping down the runway with huge billowing chiffon swirls of color trailing behind them. Miele’s flowy stuff was my favorite, the short dresses didn’t do it for me as much. And there I go again being ridiculously predictable.
