The couture shows are one of my favorite times of year. The runways are filled with the dreamiest gowns and most fashion-forward styles that are truly what dreams are made of. Not to mention, this year, Cara Delevingne’s adorable new puppy made a cameo at the Chanel show, and puppies obviously make everything a million times better — even couture. The street style is of another world as well. It’s when fashion’s elite come out in their most designer-y clothes that are really pretty impractical for any other occasion, but there’s also the more practical players who still manage to look chicer than ever. And the fact that they take place in Paris just make them a million times more C-H-I-C with a capital C. This is why I love Paris Couture Fashion Week.
