Paris Street Style: Minidresses and Maxi Skirts


Paris Haute Couture continued this week, marked by the emergence of a showgoer uniform less well-worn than kooky clutches or couture sneakers: minidresses. The summer heat drove Anna Dello Russo into a ballerina-like pink satin frock, and Hanneli Mustaparta paired a simple (and short) tweed jumper with yellow-gold boots and Nike athletic socks. Others opted for longer styles: Susie Lau wore a calf-length, tie-dye dress, Tilda Lindstam sported a pair of blue sweatpants that look suspiciously like scrubs, and Anya Ziourova showed off her baby bump in a cropped biker jacket layered on top of white lace. In lieu of an umbrella, Elena Perminova sported a Beyoncé-style metallic shower cap, while Elisa Nalin showed off a pair of flats adorned with a rather ominous pair of eyeballs.
