The real special moment of Valentino women's Autumn-Winter show was the appearance of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson — aka Derek Zoolander and Hansel. They owned the runway in a mix of sophisticated custom suiting. Why did they hit back the catwalk? It's known that there will be Zoolander 2 which is in progress now (coming out February 12th). It looks like actors are doing what's necessary to get back in character. The duo walked down the runway looking good and sophisticated.
Russian brand IRFE, that Olga Sorokina brought back to the old splendor, showcased its Spring-Summer season's show during Paris Fashion Week. The new collection was divided in three distinct themes: surplus theme, military chic and evening appropriate wear. I love the way designer mixes classic and conservative styles, offering its clients sophisticated, sporty street style apparel. The label's design team masterfully translated military touches into modern womenswear essentials. My personal favorites from the show are minimalistic dresses, indigo denimwear, tough leather outerwear and asymmetric wrap details. Did you noticed the punkish vibe, which makes every piece look individual and trendy. Speaking of color palette, then I love the black, white looks, which made a real statement during the fashion show. The following volumes and proportions make every look special and ready to wear.

During Paris Fashion Week, Rochas presented its Fall-Winter collection's runway show which consisted of clothes that could be worn by anyone.

I'd like to share with you Rick Owens Autumn-Winter women's ready to wear collection's runway show which was presented during Paris Fashion Week. This Fall season is about primal, tribal inspired wear. As Owens said: "The big coat, the big boots, the big T-shirt," and so he offered us such things. Those three components were the key ones. This cold season's theme is "Battle-scarred heroism," as models stepped out wearing black ponyskin skirts, white-laced coat-dresses, big-sleeved volume kimono like coats, narrow black coats, T-shirts covered with mid-thigh tunics, black kimono jackets, cocoonlike jackets, three-quarter-length black leather boots and needle heel boots.
This winter will come with monochrome layers, as Owens offers long coats over short dresses. I like that special touch of apocalypse in Owens fall season's collection of women's urban streetwear and those raw, practical and glamorous outerwear designs.

The designer was inspired by the illuminated medieval manuscripts. It was about medieval times and cultural cross-pollination that occured when Crusaders came back to Europe after their crusade into the Arab world. I like that special medieval flora and fauna feel in Westwood's clothes. Here you will see hyper-sophisticated tailoring including flannel pantsuits, fishtail goddess gowns, hooded capes, flyaway silk-scarf skirts.
The designer was also inspired by the Greenpeace, "Save the Arctic" was her rubric. Well, I feel kind of barbarian queen clothing here, don't you think the same.
