Not to be outdone by Milan Fashion Week, which surprised us with a Fendi x Versace collaboration, the French fashion capital has so far had some major moments. Blackpink members Jisoo and Rosé stole the show by sitting front row at Dior and Saint Laurent respectively; rumours are saying that Lisa will soon be joining them. Balmain, meanwhile, pulled out all the stops for Olivier Rousteing’s historic 10th anniversary show, which featured supermodels Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, and a powerful voiceover by Beyoncé.
