On my way to the Juicy Couture Event happening this Thursday in London, I decided to take a detour to Paris to get in on the action of Fashion Week. I was lucky enough to meet up with a group of my Style Gurus studying in "The City of Lights" to capture all the excitement outside the Haider Ackermann fall 2011 show. While many were there to see what Ackermann was showcasing down the runway, as a true street style blogger, the real event for me took place outside. Standing beside greats like The Sartorialist and Street Peeper, it was thrilling to see all the over-the-top fashion heading into the Palais de Toyko.
Kate Lanphear wore black. Joe Zee looked dapper as ever. Grace Coddington's hair was even redder in person. Emmanuelle Alt, fresh off being named French Vogue new editor-in-chief, kept to herself. Anna Dello Russo, in her bright blue fur, was as eccentric as The Satorialist caputred her to be. And Anna Wintour did the unthinkable- she smiled at me. It happened. It all did. And here are the photos to prove it.
