While most of the media attention during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall 2015 was fixated on the runway and the front row, the affiliated parties produced plenty of show-stopping looks. From a flower-focused ball to a store opening and even a cosmetics giant marking an impressive 80 years in the industry, stars really shined in the City of Light. A bit overshadowed by the Parisian presentations, Berlin also rolled out its annual Fashion Week with several models managing to make an impact off the catwalk. Color and embellishments were the two major headlines on the various red carpets. Striking shades came in all forms, like vivid florals and cool colorblocking. Flashy details like crystals and beads also added extra pizazz.
