Real Style: Paris Fall 2012 Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week is going full steam, and you know I’m on the scene!
Since I’ve been here, I’ve attended tons of great shows (Lanvin, Galliano, Kenzo), and have been snapping Real Style along the way!
Take a look at a bit of French fried fashion:

Every time I come to Paris, I have to say hey to my girl Fatou, Beauty Director of Ghubar Magazine and EIC of the French Black Beauty Blog, Street style photogs couldn’t get enough of her glorious crown, red lips, and effortlessly chic ensemble.

These two young ladies also represented for the cool hair crew, with shaved sides and jumbo plaited tresses. With hairstyles like those, you don’t need much else, though they still looked comfy and casual in bold knits and flats.

I spied Brooklyn based street style blogger Dapper Lou by the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label show, and had to take a picture. He lived up to his namesake in a moss green fedora, plaid suit, silk scarf, and dope two-toned shoes.

Also representing for the men was this young man clad entirely in vintage. He played with patterns and proportions in a salmon tunic and relaxed striped pants.

And lastly, we had these two young ladies, spied outside Lycée Henri IV after the Véronique Leroy show. They had a lot going on, boldly embracing sequins, leopard, patterned stockings, and bows. Not my style, but hey. It’s Fashion Week chic.

What do you think?
