From magazine parties, to all-night ragers, no one knows how to throw a party quite like the Parisian crowd! Only three days into Paris Fashion Week, and already, the after-hours party circuit has proven itself to be just as entertaining and buzz-worthy as the runway themselves bringing together a top notch group of models, Hollywood stars, designers and industry tastemakers. As we prepare to do our own bit of partying this weekend, we thought we’d take a look at where the models have been letting loose this week, and better yet, what they’ve been wearing through it all! Take a look at some of the Paris Fashion Week highlights below for an inside look at all of the off-runway fun from this week!
On Wednesday night, the fashion elite gathered at the Musée Palais Galliera to celebrate the grand opening of Papier Glacé— a new exhibition celebrating the history of Condé Nast magazines, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W, and featuring early works by now-legendary photographers such as Edward Steichen, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, and Patrick Demarchelier. Naturally, the week’s top models were on hand to pay tribute, including Karlie Kloss (wearing Tamara Mellon), Emily DiDonato, Arizona Muse, Constance Jablonski, Angela Lindvall and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley among others.

Over at Le Bon Marché, Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough brought a bit of the Big Apple to Paris with the opening of their new exhibit located in the storied department store. Consisting of 80 of the dynamic duo’s favorite looks from their 10-year career (hard to believe it’s been a decade, no?) the show also marked the launch of the brand’s new capsule collection, available exclusively at Le Bon Marché in Europe (or for those of you stateside, online at proenzaschouler.com). Karlie Kloss, Liya Kebede, and Constance Jablonski were just a few of the model merrymakers who made their way through the opening party where rock star Ariel Pink performed.
Twenty-four hours later, the models were back at it, this time popping by the Arts Decoratifs to celebrate the opening of the highly anticipated Dries Van Noten Inspirations exhibition. As one of the week’s biggest showmen, and a model favorite to boot, Noten had no problem drawing industry heavyweights to the event, including Anja Rubik, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Alana Zimmer among others.

Meanwhile, at Monsieur Bleu, Purple Magazine— the purveyors of some of fashion month’s most-talked about parties— joined forces with Vionnet owner Goga Ashkenazi for late-night Paris fete. Jessica Hart, Angela Lindvall, Daria Strokous, Devon Windsor and Magdalena Frackowiak were among the top models on hand for evening, eventually making their way over to Le Baron to continue the fun into the early morning hours.
The night was capped off with yet another raucous, late-night bash at Le Crazy Horse de Paris, where Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing held his post-show party. The designer was joined by a number of superstars, including fall 2014 show closer Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Anja Rubik, Barbara Palvin, actress Jessica Alba and perhaps most notably, Rihanna. And to think, it’s not even the weekend yet! With the true party days still ahead of us, we can’t wait to see what these catwalkers have in store on the style front.
