Paris Fashion Week did not disappoint so far, with elegant clothes for everyone and any occasion. Vogue magazine has the best website by far, and Lisa Armstrong in the Daily Telegraph is excellent.

Some designers did the baggy look, which would suit pregnant women expecting twins or even triplets. Various boiler suits, dungarees and wellingtons were made for women in designer sort of workplaces There were burqas, exotic furs, sexy leathers, PVC, studs, bandage contraptions, you name it. Co-respondent shoes includied gold tips and other colours: beaded and patterned shoes were also popular.

Damir Doma
Dominatrix?
Sophisticated models went briskly down catwalks with that funny walk they have, one foot directly in front of the other: a sight not seen on the pavement. They all had legs to die for. Certain models wearing Damir Doma and Balmain looked so androgynous the unworthy thought came to mind that they may have been cross-dressers, but indeed they need clothes too. Other styles featured the precocious schoolgirl and the Rebekkah Brooks demure little white-collar look. Hairdos included smooth hair with centre partings, buns, chignons, ribbons and what looked like striking white hair teased into feathery shapes for Manish Arora's glorious collection.
