We didn’t have to wait until the show’s end to catch a glimpse of the designers this season. From Nina Ricci to DVF, models were styled eerily similar to the designers. Runway after runway, we were all seeing double.

At Nina Ricci, Olivier Theyskens dressed model Bauwens as his twin, down to the orange pants, flowing dark hair, and luminescent pale skin.

Flowing blonde locks, violet blouses with dramatic key holes and a strong belt: Ferragamo designer Cristina Ortiz could have cast herself to strut down the catwalk. Instead, she dolled up Agnete Hegelund as her mirror image.

Flavia’s bouncy, brown hair, peach lips, and boldly printed ensemble overtly echoed Diane Von Furstenberg's signature, feminine style.

Kasia Struss rode an androgynous line, rocking a shirt and tie with plaid accents, the very same formula DSquared2's Dan and Dean Caten sported to thank the crowd. —Eve Bertin-Lang
