It's here! After most of another jam-packed fashion month has passed us by, Paris Fashion Week Fall 2020 has finally arrived. And while many editors, models, and insiders are positively exhausted, there's something about being in the city of light that reminds the entire industry why they do it all. So far, we've seen shows like Dior and Off-White create major moments, and there's so much more to come before Chanel, Miu Miu, and Louis Vuitton make for a jam-packed final day on March 3. At all of the biggest shows, we can be sure to see supermodels like Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber among the cast, in addition to stars from around the world (and a bunch of chic French girls) filling the front rows before heading out to celebrate at some of the chicest events.
Looking to feel like you're part of the action, or trying to make sense of it all in between a packed schedule? Consider this your cheat sheet to all the most exciting celebrities attending shows and events at Paris Fashion Week Fall 2020. From the ultracool audience at Saint Laurent to all the hottest parties, check back here over the next week to see all the ways fashion and pop culture are bound to align.
Dior Fall 2020
As one of the most established houses at Paris Fashion Week, Dior never fails to attract a star-studded crowd. This season, the likes of Alexa Chung, Camila Coelho, Cara Delevingne, Demi Moore, Maya Hawke, and Rachel Brosnahan all attended. While guests were taking plenty of pictures of the signs by art collective Claire Fontaine, which featured phrases like "Consent," "Feminine beauty is a ready-made," and "I Say I," rest assured that everyone also noticed the group of hardworking, well-known women in the room.
Saint Laurent Fall 2020
If there's one thing we know about Saint Laurent, it's an unparalleled ability to exude Parisian cool. Touching upon the role it played in '90s bourgeois nightlife, the house presented a range of latex for any style this season, and while we have no idea whether or not the world will commit to the skintight material next season, it sure was mesmerizing to watch. Just as exciting was the front row, which counted Ana de Armas, Devon Lee Carlson, Zoë and Lenny Kravitz, Hailey Bieber, and Liya Kebede among its fashion-party-ready crew.
Chloé Fall 2020
Fitting to Natacha Ramsay-Levi's latest collection, which was all about subtle reinventions of structured neutrals to craft nuanced femininity for the complex modern woman, the audience at Chloé was full of some of the most exciting (and chicest) women attending this Paris Fashion Week. Ellie Goulding, Kate Bosworth, Katie Holmes, Lucy Boynton, Phoebe Collings James, and Sofía Sanchez de Betak were all in attendance, making for an accomplished and creative crowd to witness a collection that featured several female artist collaborations.
Off-White "Dinner Party"
Virgil Abloh doesn't throw a dinner party. Instead, he throws a "Dinner Party." To celebrate Off-White's latest accessories collections, which are featured in a pop-up shop for the duration of Paris Fashion Week, the design talent invited some of his closest industry contacts to enjoy dinner and cocktails at Frenchie on Wednesday night. Gigi and Bella Hadid both attended, as did Amina Muaddi, Devon Lee Carlson, Georgia Tordini, and Blanca Miró. While it must have been hectic for Abloh to host this event the night before the Off-White Fall 2020 show was happening, we sure are glad he did.
Thom Browne Fall 2020
Thom Browne held his first co-ed show this season, challenging traditional gender roles through deconstructed suits on both male and female models, who walked two-by-two with animal bags as if they were boarding Noah's Ark. But amidst all the fun (Britney Spears tunes included), we couldn't help but notice there were even more trailblazers sitting front row. Yara Shahidi, Janelle Monáe, Nate Wonder, Maisie Williams, Reuben Selby, Peyalo Diaz, Xiao Wen, and Jeremy O. Harris were among the icons who made an appearance in Browne's winter wonderland.
Yeezy Season 8
Kanye West made waves with his return to Paris Fashion Week, starting off with a surprise Sunday Service featuring a choir wearing beige outfits as they sang gospel versions of the rapper's hits, then concluding with his presentation of Yeezy Season 8 the following evening. Attendees included Olivier Rousteing, Michèle Lamy, and Rihanna muse Sita Abellán, who all watched the new collection premiere before a special guest appearance from West's young daughter North, who made her rap debut performing a hit by five-year-old internet sensation ZaZa. West's sister-in-law Kourtney Kardashian and his wife Kim Kardashian West both came out to support both the Yeezy collection and North, who was the real star of the show.
Chanel Fall 2020
Inspired by an image of Karl Lagerfeld in riding boots and Coco Chanel's racehorse named Romantica, Virginie Viard intertwined themes of equestrianism and romanticism for Chanel Fall 2020, creating the perfect collection for the chic horse girl. Well-suited for the liberated, active woman, the pieces had a rather simplistic way of expressing romantic elements sans frills and heavy embellishments, expressing the beauty in subtlety. As one of the most anticipated shows of Paris Fashion Week, it's no surprise that Chanel had a star-studded front row. Household names and rising stars in attendance included Janelle Monáe, Pom Klementieff, Maggie Rogers, Margaret Qualley, Anna Mouglalis, Angele, Ladj Ly, and Kim Chapiron.
Miu Miu Fall 2020
With plush velvet couches and decorative carpeting reminiscent of a vintage movie theater, Miuccia Prada truly set the scene when it came to her Miu Miu Fall 2020 collection. The vintage touches carried through the collection with silk and tweed, utility-style pieces, and 1940s curls. Euphoria's Storm Reid opened the show, with Hollywood royalty Iris Law and musician Rita Ora strutting not far behind, all three making their runway debut. The celebrity cameos extended beyond the catwalk with Anya Taylor-Joy, Alexa Chung, Miss Fame, Lachlan Watson, Emma Corrin, Lucy Hale, Victoria Pedretti (AKA Love from You), Poppy Delevingne, and French musician Soko all sitting front row.
Louis Vuitton Fall 2020
Inspired by the new decade and the upcoming time-themed Met Gala (which the house is sponsoring), Louis Vuitton's Fall 2020 show explored the intersection of periods from the 15th century to 1950. Nicholas Ghesquiére looks to both the past and the future in this collection, so it was only appropriate that some of the most timely celebrities were present. Cody Fern, Kaitlyn Dever, Lupita Nyong'o, Florence Pugh, Emma Chamberlain, and Laura Harrier each incorporated elements from the past, as well as some futuristic choices, in their LV show looks.
