At Paris’ end, designers were divided between punctuating their shows with brand-new faces versus brand-name stars. Raquel Zimmermann, who began walking major shows in 1999, continues to be a Lagerfeld favorite and closed Chanel. Sasha Pivovarova, forever Prada’s darling, closed Miu Miu. Olga Sherer and Anabela Belikova looked formidably untouchable opening and closing Lanvin. But Paris’s spotlight has been fixed squarely on Amanda Laine. Opening Alexander McQueen and Miu Miu, plus closing Louis Vuitton, the young Canadian has made a huge splash in her first season. Paris was hers, and we're giving her the week's win. —Kendall Herbst
