Paris Fashion Week usually gives rise to an emerging runway star, but this season was overrun with the tried-and-true favorites. While some newbies managed to chalk up some opening and closing slots, the old guard showed up in force. Eva Herzigova, Natalia Vodianova, and Daria Werbowy all made special appearances when they opened and closed Hermès, Stella McCartney, and Balmain, respectively. Mariacarla Boscono had her requisite closing slot at Givenchy. John Galliano anointed Karlie Kloss the lucky one when she opened for Christian Dior and his namesake label. And runway fixture Kasia Struss continued to have a successful season when she opened for the directional Dries Van Noten and Balenciaga shows. But, it's Freja Beha, with her sleek, androgynous look, that trumped them all. Being Karl Lagerfeld's muse, naturally she closed his Karl Lagerfeld line and Chanel (alongside Baptiste Giabiconi and Lara Stone). That in itself could have warranted the win, but the Danish model was also the first face at Rick Owens and Chloé, and closed out Dries van Noten and Valentino. See all of Paris's openers and closers in our slideshow.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
