Paris Fashion Week Moments That Kept Us Talking

Audiences were abuzz over breathing runways, drone models, social media blackouts, tartan codpieces and kisses on the catwalk.

This year’s fashion weeks have been going on for almost two months now. (You would be forgiven for not noticing, given the current news cycle.) They started in January with the men’s wear shows, which were followed by the couture shows, which were followed by fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Paris hosts the biggest and glitziest of these events, and Styles covered the major moments. But as the week — and season — draws to a close, we recall others that turned our heads, made us smile or that kept us talking long after we saw them.

Neither days of rain nor crowds screaming for their favorites celebs nor a broken foot after a gym mishap could stop Victoria Beckham from having her show — and hobbling out at the end of it to kiss her biggest fan: her husband, David. Also applauding the trompe l’oeil jackets that turned out to be halter tops and the face-framing coat collars were their children Brooklyn, Cruz and Harper, as well as their daughter-in-law Nicola Peltz Beckham. Perhaps the most impressive accessorizing, though, was Victoria’s crutches, which matched her black pants and top. (VF)

Why was Antoine Arnault, the eldest scion of the LVMH empire, in the front row of Vetements, the brand founded by Demna and Guram Gvalasia and now run solely by Guram? Was LVMH considering a purchase? So went the front-row whispers before the show, though the answer soon became apparent: Mr. Arnault’s wife, Natalia Vodianova, was on the runway. So was Alexander Edwards, Cher’s significant other, which explains why she was there, and so was Georgina Rodriguez, the girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo, wearing a jersey dress with his number on it.
