The A-list have been out in fashion force on the front row at the a/w haute couture shows in Paris. But while Jessica Alba looked like a summery breath of fresh air and Amber Le Bon gave her mum a run for her money in the beauty stakes, all focus has been on the jaw-dropping runway displays.

John Galliano's Christian Dior show yesterday reminded us why haute couture still exists, with a breathtaking garden-inspired display that included stunning full-skirted petal-like ballgowns that almost looked like they were made of exotic, rare lilies. Seriously, if we had a spare £100,000, we might be tempted.

Over at Armani Privé, a more sombre display (well, in comparison) of slightly ‘70s-inspired super-sophisticated silhouettes with knee-length, flares and amber tones featuring strongly – all in the most luxe fabrics known to man (strictly a polyester-free zone!). Later today will see Givenchy and Chanel – we can't wait to see what Karl will come up with this time (oh, and who will be there). ZA
