Not even two months after giving birth to her first child — Flynn the ginormo-babyMiranda Kerr walked in the Balenciaga show today in Paris. Editors loved how wearable it was, Cathy Horyn writes for the Times. Horyn, who is never easy to impress, was quite complimentary herself. "What’s the line from 'Jerry Maguire'? You had me at hello?" she writes. Also shocking, the opening jackets that looked to be made of knitted leather were actually made of fake leather — also known as pleather. Pleather. At Balenciaga. Also, Galliano's out at Dior and Christophe Decarnin didn't go to his own show today. Anything is possible in Paris this season!
