manish arora s/s 2012

Editor's comments: I had to look through these photos several times to really take in the details, and believe me, there are a ton. Each piece is gorgeous and aspirational. And look at the shoes! The neon beads and sparkle ankle wraps...ugh, so amazing.

nina ricci s/s 2012

Editor's comments: I love the sweetness of Nina Ricci's pieces (especially that pink coat). The little tiara headpieces are lovely. 

gareth pugh s/s 2012

Editor's comments: The thing I love about Paris Fashion Week is the extreme art element. It's much more about the pieces as moving works of art. Case in point: Gareth Pugh's futuristic spring collection. I wonder how the model in the last photo was able to see...

mugler s/s 2012

Editor's comments: These dresses are very Jetsons-esque in their cut and shape. Very futuristic. While there was no Lady Gaga on their runway this season, the clothes stood on their own pretty well, along with the help of favorite models like Joan Smalls, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Ruby Aldridge, etc. 

balmain s/s 2012

Editor's comments: The king of architectural, strong-shouldered jackets has returned! I love the brocade prints on the dresses, pants and skirts. I haven't seen much of Freja Beha Erichsen lately, so I'm pleased to see she's in some of the Paris shows. 

balenciaga s/s 2012

Editor's comments: Strong structures and extreme oversized hats were the primary motifs at the spring/summer Balenciaga show, which took place just a few hours ago in Paris. Yes, we've already moved on to Paris. So excited to see the other shows!

dolce & gabbana s/s 2012

Editor's comments: The jeweled dresses!! Gorgeous! And the orange raincoat and skirt on Jessica Stam is pretty interesting and sweet. 

albino s/s 2012

Obsession: The 3-D rosette ombre top, the amazing coat in the last photo and the Willy Wonka sunglasses.
