Latest looks from Paris Fashion Week

  • Cool Britannia

    With her distinctive, confident swagger, Brit supermodel Cara Delevingne led on the runway as models showed off designer Stella McCartney’s collection. An oatmeal knitted dress made a strong statement with its innovative, draped structure. (Getty Images)

  • Soft touch

    There was a striking contrast of styles and textures at Givenchy. Sleekly cut, leopard-spot coats with astrakhan edging were teamed with floaty, sheer scarves in peach and blush-pink – over equally feminine, pleated silk-chiffon dresses. (Getty Images)

  • All woman

    It was a polished, luxurious aesthetic at Givenchy, and among the looks was an animal-print scarf teamed with a voluminous-sleeved fur jacket. Designer Riccardo Tisci, who had become known for his sweatshirts and street-style aesthetic, presented a collection that was more grown-up and womanly than previous seasons. (Getty Images)

  • Sharp end

    Christian Dior has been given a new lease of life under designer Raf Simons, and this season’s collection continued the process of rejuvenation. He brought his tailoring flair to proceedings, with some immaculate flannel, camel and pinstripe creations. (Getty Images)

  • Lean machine

    The silhouette was long and slim at Roland Mouret, with some seriously sexy power dressing, including black leather asymmetric ensembles. As usual with Mouret, it was all about the extreme tailoring. (Getty images)

  • Miller time

    Celine designer Phoebe Philo sent out a strong 1930s-influenced look this season, drawing on the androgynous dressing of the era’s creative icons, including Lee Miller and Hannah Höch. The silhouette was elegant though. (Getty Images)

  • Hat tricks

    John Galliano has long collaborated with milliner Stephen Jones, and the hats created for this season’s collection included eccentric but elegant feathered creations that chimed perfectly with enfant terrible’s extravagant vision. (Getty Images)

  • Feathered friend

    Vivienne Westwood displayed her usual extravagant vision, with pirate-style touches everywhere. Signature ruffles, tartan and outrageous war-paint style make-up all got a look in – as did a striking feathered head dress. (Getty Images)

  • Fade to grey

    Victor & Rolf kept the palette largely grey and white – with a splash here and there of orange and blue hues. Cable knitwear was a strong feature, with hair loose and dishevelled to match the easy, comfy mood. (Getty images)

  • Green goddess

    Jean-Paul Gaultier’s collection was a bonanza of outrageous looks, including Mohawk hairstyles and tartan. Elsewhere, the top-knot hairdos and emerald-green palette made a punky, kitsch statement. (Getty Images)
