It's time for Paris and the Fashion Week we've all been waiting for with bated breath. The absolute first (and last) word in chic trendsetting happens here. If you're not excited, feel free to get riled up. Need help? These tweets should whet your appetite.
The hot button issue surrounding street style obsession and blogger presence at the shows seemed to be on everyone's mind as they navigated through the flashy throngs. Robin Givhan wanted to know if photogs were more interested in pre-show fashion than what's on the runway, while Alexis Bryan Morgan wished, tongue firmly in-cheek, that she'd brought a personal wind machine assistant. Judging by our favorite street style snaps, the classic black stiletto pump is the shoe (at least for now).
When it comes to pics on Twitter, Gareth Pugh wins. His avant-garde looks begged to be commented on and shared. We've got backstage and on-stage views from editors, bloggers and makeup artists. We've also got some more "designers before they were stars" photos courtesy of AnOther Magazine. Enjoy!
