Celebs Take Over Paris, An Insider’s View of Elie Saab’s Headquarters — and More Fashion Tweets from #PFW

As we get ready to close the week (don't worry, it's not over yet), we're treated to bitterness at celebrity interference, intellectual musings on avant-garde designer Hussein Chalayan along with a healthy dose of celeb and fashion selfies (the ones you won't see in a street style roundup).

The fashion director for Harper's Bazaar UK has a Rihanna gripe, or rather her cabbie does. Olivia Palermo lets some underling take her photo while she sips espresso and Kanye West is snapped in the front row looking like he's got the weight of the world on his mind. Mickey Boardman lets us know that not all food in Paris is too pretty to eat, while Aimee Song gives us a glimpse into Elie Saab's headquarters. There's also a new hair trend, a model lineup and prints that make an editor say "boo."
