>> Lanvin, Dior, Balmain, Carven, Rick Owens — the past few days of Paris Fashion Week have been busy ones, so it's no wonder that the backstage mood has been just as high-energy as ever. The ladies of Lanvin played up the mystique with giant fans and new-wave shades; the girls at Dior looked demure in ladylike lipstick and super-sweet poses; and there was plenty of playful frolicking — not to mention an eye-catching array of candy-hued shoes — at Carven. Balmain offered up a dose of rock n' roll glamour with gilded shorts and heavy hardware, while the ethereal vibe at Rick Owens made for lots of ghoulish creeping. All the behind-the-scenes action and more, here in the slideshow.

>> Paris Fashion Week is in full swing — and the street style looks seem to be getting better by the moment. Day three had Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo looking chummy — and chic — as they giggled their way across the Tuileries in equally eye-catching ensembles: A bright orange shift for Giovanna, and an oversized pearl fascinator for Anna. Leighton Meester turned up wearing a ruffled white off-the-shoulder frock, while Olivia Palermo was spotted in a sheer maxi skirt and lace blouse combo complete with oversized jade earrings. There were also plenty of fancy pants in the mix: Taylor Tomas Hill wore a sequined pair, Margherita Missoni wore a velvet periwinkle style, and Susie Lau stunned in a wide-leg printed bright coral pair.
