Pink Eyelashes and Stuck-Out Tongues — Backstage at Givenchy, Viktor & Rolf, John Galliano, Costume National, and Issey Miyake
>> Color seeped into beauty looks at Issey Miyake and Viktor & Rolf — in the form of long pink eyelashes at the latter; Gisele Bundchen stuck her tongue out — more than once — backstage at Givenchy; plus, see appearances by Miranda Kerr, Erin Wasson, and Naomi Campbell as you flip through the latest backstage snaps from those shows, John Galliano, and Costume National.

>> Just a few short days after showing his Spring 2012 collection for Vionnet, Rodolfo Paglialunga has left the brand. “Rudy is a talented designer who has allowed us to restart a sleeping brand,” co-owner Matteo Marzotto said, noting that the decision was consensual. Marzotto added that he has big plans to further grow Vionnet and extend its product offering. Italian twin sisters Barbara and Lucia Croce have been tapped to replace Paglialunga, who joined Vionnet in February 2009. [WWD]
>> The event schedule was jam-packed, the weather was unseasonably warm, and the super-chic were out in full-force — here's a look at some of the knock-out street style spotted during Day 5 of Paris Fashion Week. Click through to see Anna Dello Russo in three different eye-catching ensembles — complete with matching headgear; Julia and Carine Roitfeld, Liv Tyler, and Leigh Lezark rocking this season's panther prints at the Givenchy afterparty; and Chanel Iman stepping out in the Giuseppe Zanotti-designed booties from Kanye West's debut collection. All this, plus more in the slideshow.
>> It's in the jeans. Full-on denim looks were all over the runways for Spring 2011 — Jason Wu, Celine, Stella McCartney, and Chloe all offered up the style — and it looks like the trend is continuing for Fall. Over the past few weeks, we've spotted denim-on-denim on a handful of Fashion Week street style regulars — Lauren Santo Domingo even sported two separate versions of the look at recent shows. While the record-breaking high temperatures in Europe have no doubt made this breezy style work well now, there's no reason the look can't be worn straight through Winter with the addition of some key styling pieces. Click through to see street-snapped double-denim inspiration and shop all the looks, here in the slideshow.
