Well, it's been one whirlwind of a month but fashion week season finally comes to a close today. As usual, the stylish set ends their runway runs with the grand finale that is Paris Fashion Week, where front rows, catwalks, and after parties all feature some of the biggest names in the game. While most of us were experiencing some major French FOMO over the past few days, at least we had Instagram to let us browse the Chanel Shopping Center, take selfies with Lupita, and (of course) party with Rihanna all night long.
Did you ever think you could dine, swim, or party in a subway station? Well, Paris is trying to make this a reality. According to recent sketches released by NKM, there is a possibility that some of Paris' abandoned subway stations could be transformed into glamorous venues. The French Politician Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, who could also be the first female mayoral candidate for Paris, released sketches of revamped abandoned subways stations. Her plans included turning the stations into theaters, restaurants, bars, art galleries, swimming pools and other sporting venues. Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, who also goes by NKM, teamed up with architects Manal Rachdi and Nicolas Laisne to create old Ghost Stations into these luxurious venues. This makes us wonder if it's possible for NYC subway stations to do the same! But in the meantime, click through and see the sketches of what Paris subway stations could look like come next Paris Fashion Week!

Ah, the haute couture shows à Paris—a week-long whirlwind of extravagant outfits, intricate details, and...a lot of Karl Lagerfeld.

Hey, if it worked for us, it could work for you. Click through for a coutur-able recap that will make you feel like you were front row.
Go HERE for more photos from Giorgio Armani "One Night Only" Paris! Last night in Paris, Giorgio Armani made a splash at Couture Week with the "One Night Only" event featuring his Giorgio Armani Privé Spring/Summer 2014 presentation. The event, which has been held in London, Beijing, Rome, and Tokyo in the past most recently made its way to New York in September, where the Privé collection was presented to Leonardo DiCaprio, Anna Wintour, Martin Scorcese, and many more.
Despite all of the usual excitement, this past Paris Fashion Week was flavored with a bittersweetness felt by all fashion fans. Though theatrics could always be expected at Louis Vuitton, the Spring/Summer 2014 show was especially awe-inspiring and slightly heart-wrenching, as it marked Marc Jacobs' final collection as creative director of the brand. The blackout set and wistful music were at once both magical and somber, as Jacobs took guests on a darkened trip down memory lane, recreating some of the brand's most iconic moments during his tenure. Undoubtedly, the crowd's subsequent standing ovation was not only for the show, but for his impressive 16-year-run. As a toast to one of our favorite fashion relationships, we've rounded up Marc's most memorable moments at Louis Vuitton.
Paris Fashion Week is the culmination of the long and arduous three weeks that precede it. Models, designers, and editors are tired, but are rewarded with the gorgeous city of Paris and all that comes along with it. And that certainly includes the most glamorous, star-studded parties of the month. An after-party in an aquarium, a surprise dinner with only the best designers, and multiple Anna Wintour sightings are just a fraction of what went on this PFW. Click through for our roundup of the top parties!
