LMFF Paris Runway 1 Presented by Grazia

Pumping music, champagne flowing and a bevvy of leggy blondes opened Runway One of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

Best dressed at this show were in fact, the crowd! So many stunning young girls in shaped trousers, tailoring, patent heels, shirts, luxe tribal dresses and the classic ‘bed hair’.

The models: of those that could walk, they were amazing. Their make=up: dewy and highlighted, their hair: in the words of Lady Ga Ga: poker straight.

The clothes: Stand out for me was J’Aton, probably because the collection stood out to the remainder of the show. Casino Royal Cocktail dresses, Versace hair and luxe luxe luxe. Such a juxtaposition to the current state of the economic climate and designers falling in its wake.

Loves: The stripes at Kirrily, the excessively pink pumps at Tina Kalivas, the dreamy space prints at Ksubi , the metallics at Sass and Bide, the tie dye fringes at Romance was Born.

Hates: The model who walked like an ape and Karen Walker.
