Top Street Style Looks From Paris Fashion Week

by Zoe Brunn · March 4, 2011

The French know fashion; they invented the little black dress (thank you, Chanel!) and pioneered the mini skirt (cheers, Courrèges!). Parisians look très chic every day of the year, which is to be expected from the fashion capital of the world. If you're walking down the street in Paris sans 4 inch heels, they know you're not a local. NY and Milan kicked off fashion week with some amazing street style, but Paris brings out the crème de la crème. Check out some of our favorite street style looks from Paris Fashion Week.

You probably recognize Freja Beha Erichsen; she's the face of H&M, Chanel, Harry Winston, AZUL by Moussy, and countless others. Freja is known for her rocker/tomboy style, and here she pulls off the all black with ease.

Model Britt Maren looks très à la mode staying warm in her camel coat. No runway in sight and she still works it! [photo via]

Model Natasha Poly finishes rocking the Balmain runway in Paris, and looks great with a timeless Chanel bag and adorable hand warmers. No wonder she's one of the highest paid models in the world... [Photo via]

It's hard to pull off a furry frock with leather pants and an over-sized purse; but model Yulia Terentieva does it and looks fierce! The mix of textures looks great, and we love her red nails to add a touch of color. [photo via Simon Ackerman]

Model Sasha Pivovarova keeps it simple with a comfy sweater and vest. Ladies, take note, this is layering done right. [photo via]

Polish model Anja Rubik wears a gorgeous little black dress, a Parisian classic, after stomping the Balmain runway in Paris Week. What a perfect balance between classy and sexy! [photo via]

Street style is not all about the models; we love this stylish Parisian woman's choice to mix grey and black with a pink blazer. Simple, yet classy.

Although French women look fantastique in black, it's always refreshing to see a woman wearing color! The brights look great together, and we die for the shoes. [photo via]

Anna Dello Russo always looks amazing. I mean, this candid shot in the street almost looks like an ad. The editor at large of Vogue Japan graces the streets of Paris with some pink feathers and sequins that are truly magnifique!  [photo via]

Models Alana Zimmer and Siri Tollerod are such a stylish pair! We love Alana's pops of color with her purple trench and navy backpack next to Siri's earth tone layers and black skirt. [Photo via]
