Of all of the fashion industry's elite events, nothing truly competes with Haute Couture Week. The ultimate insiders and true enthusiasts flock to Paris for the high-profile shows, where wildly expensive, impeccably handcrafted, one-of-a-kind confections are presented to an equally rarified audience. While the runways were as breathtaking as always, we were also impressed by some of the real-life ensembles modeled by some our favorite stylish subjects, so we simply had to spotlight a few in today's Fashion Scene story. Whether they were wearing Russia's finest (like the uber-chic Elena Perminova in Vika Gazinskaya), America's darlings (Victoria Traina in Proenza Schouler), or the most stunning Parisian couture (Diane Kruger in Chanel), we fell in love with so many looks and hope you enjoy them too!
