With a star-studded guest list including Megan Fox, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rebecca Romijn, and Cate Blanchett, attendees enjoyed entrancing views of the exquisite Eiffel Tower and sultry Seine River while frolicking over fabulous French glasses of wintry white wine. Vivacious Valentino vixons strutted down the runway, Dior dazzled attendees with draped dresses, and Chanel cultivated their color pallet (sticking to traditional blacks and whites), while Armani avidly accompanied the week with their signature mirage of black and white pieces. The rumors of the runway were buzzing when it was confirmed that Christian Lacroix is in fact seeping into the shady seas of bankruptcy.
