Paris Fashion Week just wrapped, and we can't contain ourselves. The clothes! The colors! The drama! Oh the French, they always know how to deliver. Louis Vuitton, which served up a richer, more grown-up take on Marc Jacob's own collection in New York, was the crowned hit of the week. Stefano Pilati paid homage to the late, great Yves Saint Laurent, while Martin Margiela toasted his twenty years in the business. It was, in short, one amazing week. And somehow we managed to pick our top looks out of the 65-plus shows that walked. From Chalayan's silicone to Balenciaga's sequins, there's something for everyone. Click ahead to see our top twenty looks.
Layers, obi belts, sheer tops, fringe--Louis Vuitton reworked the best trends of the season to make them more elegant and refined.
Nicolas Ghesquiere's collection was futuristic and space-age, but the sequined dresses were by far the prettiest and most wearable.
Hussein Chalayan's silicone dresses reminded everyone that fashion is truly an art form.
Only Karl could pile on bows, lace, sheer fabric, and feathered headdresses and still make dresses look absolutely gorgeous.
Comme des Garcons
Comme des Garcons was right on trend. See-through fabric, with plays on patterns and textures, much like the Milan collections--but done with far more drama.
Ann Demeulemeester's ruffle-filled collection had some pretty dresses like this white embellished number.
Dries Van Noten
We loved Van Noten's dip dyes. But his metallics and sequins were just as eye-catching.
Galliano's sheer dresses ranged from goddess to frilly.
For his first show in Paris, Pugh played with textures, layering on plastic. They may not have been easy to wear, but they were amazing to look at.
New king of glamour Giambattista Valli's dresses and silhouettes won raves.
Kris Van Assche
We'd wear these clothes. In fact, our closets are begging for these.
Lacroix's patterns and prints were subdued--for Lacroix. We loved the black and whites for their simplicity. They allowed us to actually see the workmanship of the clothes.
Maison Martin Margiela
Leave it to Margiela to put "show" back in fashion show. His twentieth-anniversary collection was a retrospective that had us all cheering.
Despite a model fainting and McQueen doing his bow in a bunny suit, we managed to focus on his clothes for a moment. The dresses were our favorites. The looser, draped looks are easier to wear, but for those who don't fear the corset, there's always a dramatic evening look to squeeze into.
Miu Miu's prints were amazing. We loved the dresses and can't wait to get our hands on these come spring.
Olivier Theyskens's collection was full of beautiful dresses with high-low hemlines. We'll be seeing these on the red carpet.
Stella McCartney is perhaps the only designer who makes clothes for herself. Which is why her collection is so wearable. We could have easily picked five more looks we liked.
Perhaps not the most wearable collection, Vivienne Westwood's show was interesting, beautiful, and, as this gown demonstrates, elegant.
Yves Saint Laurent
Stefano Pilati's tribute to Yves Saint Laurent included a smoking jacket, right. We loved the cut and color of the dress, which could have come straight from the archives, with some updates, of course.
Alber Elbaz knows how to drape a dress. And even in pants the Lanvin woman is sexy and chic.
