You've done it again: you have successfully survived another Fashion Month! Well, almost. We can’t put the Fall/Winter ’15 season behind us until we've rounded out with one of the most important weeks of all: Paris Fashion Week. Whether you've got a full lineup of shows to attend or are just coming to scope out the crowd, we've put together a complete guide of everywhere you have to go during your wonderful week in Paris!
Our lives tend to fall into a certain pattern: we wake up, get dressed, go to work, scan our favorite websites… OK, let’s stop there. Checking our favorite social platforms for friends’ updates and world news is a value to us. But after a while, it can get repetitive. However, there’s no need to fear a lull in your Internet escapes! Take a virtual trip to Paris by reading through some of our favorite French blogs, from food and fashion to everywhere in between.
We here at GofG have officially sold our souls to the Soldes. And if you’re not exactly sure what the heck we’re talking about, the Soldes is a bi-annual major sale period that occurs in Paris – once in January and February, and then again in June and July. These are the only times that apparel and merchandise are discounted to the extremes, so of course we have to take advantage of it! We didn't think you would be able to resist either, so we've listed off some of our favorite French brands that you have to browse through and buy from ASAP. Shop fast, as this season’s Soldes end on February 17th!
The Haute Couture S/S 2015 runway shows are in full-force over in Paris, and we can't stop staring at all the stunning fashions and collections. Designers are showing impeccable detail work, bold, statement patterns, and the most exquisite ensembles we would just love to try on. We've rounded up our favorite, must-see looks from the couture shows at Paris Fashion Week (and even predicted who we think might wear them to, say, this year's Oscars!), into one slideshow. Click through for all the best gowns from Dior, Chanel, Versace, and more!
With men's and Haute Couture shows happening in Paris, bloggers, models, writers, editors, and fashion-lovers are taking to the streets of Paris, looking to impress everyone on the scene. The fashions have certainly caught our attention, and we can't help but want to totally steal some of the Paris street style looks. We've recreated four of our favorites, from warm coats to floral minis, so that we can bring a little bit of Paris-inspiration back home. Click through our slideshow for more!
While Fashion Week across the globe is technically all about the runways, we all know that most of the time the REAL standout looks are found outside the shows. In Paris, especially, the street style games are the main event. From leggy editors to the inimitable Leandra Medine, check out who we spotted looking fierce in France this season!
After a week of grandiose runway shows, coffee dates at Café de Flore, and stylish soirées filled with fashion royalty, we've finally said good bye to Paris Fashion Week this season. But not, of course, without one last bash to see us off. CR Fashion Book No. 5 launched with a bang last night, thanks to a party at the Peninsula Hotel in celebration of Carine Roitfeld and Stephen Gan. Everyone from Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (it's unclear whether they were together, but we digress...) to Karl Lagerfeld and Kim Kardashian came out for the event, which featured a performance by Jessie Ware and a surprise cake for birthday girl Carine.

The always fabulous, always FOMO-inducing Paris Fashion Week came to a close last night and of course it was with a bang. Like most of her parties, the soirée celebrating Carine Roitfeld and the launch of the latest CR Fashion Book was a star-studded event, seeing the likes of Miranda Kerr, Karl Lagerfeld, and yes, even Justin Bieber. But that was hardly the only grand affair of the week. From the Balmain after party to the intimate and chic PURPLE Magazine dinner, click through for a look at the top parties of PFW this season.
Just when we thought we've seen everything there is to be seen from Chanel (weddings, rodeos, supermarkets, etc.), Karl Lagerfeld once again worked his magic and managed to surprise us all. Leave it to the King to turn the Grand Palais into an even more stunning setting, like, say, an entire Parisian street. Complete with trompe l'oeil apartment buildings, sidewalks, and even glittering puddles in the "street," the runway became Boulevard Chanel and the supermodels, including Cara, Kendall, and Gisele, became fashionable, feminist protesters ready to take the city by storm. Holding signs that read "Make Fashion Not War," "Ladies First," and "Divorce For Everyone," models marched down in a grand finale that was just as colorful as the Spring/Summer 2015 collection they were donning. Click through for a full look at the Paris Fashion Week show EVERYONE will be talking about.
If there's one theme on the runways this Paris Fashion Week, it's minimalism. Fresh, youthful faces have been seen in many of the big shows, although a stark pop of bold beauty hasn't gone unnoticed. From Balmain to Christian Dior, click through to see the gorgeous details from the first shows of PFW - and everything you need to emulate them.
