We've said it before, and we'll say it again—fashion weeks are some of the best times for street style watching. From catching every one of Olivia Palermo's looks to discovering new style stars on the rise, there's a lot of sartorial inspiration to be found. This year's Paris Couture Week was no exception. In fact, the fashion here is that much bolder and more glamorous.
Best of all, we all discovered a new trendsetter this year who was not at all afraid of taking fashion risks. Meet Araya Hargate, the Thai actress who Vogue officially dubbed "the trendsetter who took couture week by storm." Hargate consistently stepped out in the boldest designer ensembles, from suit sets in statement-making patterns to gorgeously detailed gowns.
This self-dubbed "material girl" is not only a red carpet maven, but an industry insider, too. Her Instagram is filled with behind-the-scenes shots of everything from her couture-filled hotel room to snaps with the world's top designers. We're totally living vicariously through all her amazing photos.
