Miuccia Prada pulled in the ultimate front row for Miu Miu Fall 2013: from stars like Renée Zellweger, January Jones, and Zoe Saldana to pals like Marc Jacobs, this was a crowd to be reckoned with. And they were rewarded with a cutting-edge but utterly wearable collection with an emphasis on elongated silhouettes in navy with pops of bright pink, yellow, and blue. Shoes with lug soles were paired with striped tights, while waists were nipped in on astrakhan and nylon coats. The effect was ladylike but off-kilter — just what her fans have come to love about Ms. Prada. Click through to see the full Miu Miu Fall 2013 collection.
Marc Jacobs certainly knows how to put a Fashion Month to bed. His Fall 2013 show for Louis Vuitton, presented Wednesday morning in the tented courtyard of the Louvre, was as elegant, comfortable, and spectacular as the boudoir-inspired slip dresses, coats, and pajama pants that came down the runway of his wallpapered hotel corridor set.
As the melancholy piano strains of Alexandre Desplat's "River" (used on the soundtrack for the film Tree of Life) began, models in close-cropped wigs emerged from numbered, wooden hotel doors that lined the periphery of the carpeted runway. Each model left the door to her room ajar — exposing black and white film projections and rooms filled with Louis Vuitton luggage — did one full turn on the runway, and then returned to her room and closed the door. Then the cycle repeated itself with different doors, different models, and different clothes until the final segment, when Kate Moss emerged in a low-cut, full-length, sheer gown decorated with embroidery. The audience cheered.
