UNPREDICTABLE PARIS (AND MILAN)

4 Oct

What does a pregnant model, Beth Ditto, Jean Paul Gautier, and Elena Miro all have in common?  Why Paris Fashion Week of course!  Add a dash of the greedy side of Crystal Renn and you’ve got a very unpredictable side of Paris (and Milan) this fall.

(Above) Balenciaga debuted their Spring 2011 collection in Paris on Wednesday.   Miranda Kerr walked the runway five-months pregnant.  Of course not the first model to strut with child down a Paris runway, but certainly stunning.

(Below) Even though Beth Ditto and JPG celebrated on the catwalk, designer Elena Miro wasn’t as lucky.  For the past 5 years Elena Miro’s plus label has kicked off Milan Fashion Week, but this year Mario Boselli, head of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion had other plans.  “Some labels just weren’t in line with what ready-to-wear week should be. We wanted to champion the values of creativity to reaffirm Milan’s role in the world.” (via Styleite.com)  The show was at an offsite location…and jam packed.

(Below) We’ve seen Crystal Renn in a lot of different ways, but never like this.  Vogue Paris is celebrating it’s 90th anniversary issue this month.  Crystal, shot by Terry Richardson, shows off her…uh…greedier side.
