The Best Dressed Celebrities at Paris Haute Couture 2019 Fashion Week
Many of the world’s finest celebrities flew to Paris over the weekend to indulge in some stunning high fashion at Paris Haute Couture 2019 Fashion Week. But they didn’t just observe. Whether they were sitting front row or snapped heading into a show, they also embraced their own eye-catching senses of style and we narrowed it down to the best ones!
Celine Dion is essentially the queen of Paris Fashion Weeks, turning the streets into her own personal runway. Wearing some of her wackiest and coolest looks yet, this year’s Haute Couture week has been no different. Her first official Haute Couture Fashion Week event was Schiaparelli, which would be presenting its first collection under Daniel Roseberry’s creative direction. Dion had a custom look made by Roseberry—a black halter-necked dress with a pleated skirt and matching elbow-length gloves. She finished it off with a headpiece by Stephen Jones, milliner to the stars, and sunglasses by Féroce.
Mandy Moore just made the streets of Paris a real life runaway. The This Is Us actress is most certainly cementing her place in the fashion industry and has proven herself quite the fashionista . Wearing a sheer striking blue cape dress with an embellished golden belt created by designer Peter Dundas, at the Dundas Fall 2020 Haute Couture Fashion show, the brunette beauty bewitched everyone with her outfit and equally mesmerizing makeup look.
Check out the chicest look on our newest MJ: Zendaya. She wore a cropped whitetuxedo shirt with slouchy plain black ankle cut trousers that displayed her tights and stiletto heels. She had her hair slicked back and we just can’t get over how perfectly she pulled this look off at the Armani Privé Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2019 show on July 2!
Margot Robbie: For the Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter show on July 2, the Once Upon a Time In Hollywood actress rocked a black and white checkered jacket with criss-cross print tweed pants matching with plain back heels and it surprisingly worked! Keeping casual, simple but chic.
This just might be the blonde beauty’s most daring outfit to date. Christina Aguilera dons a vintage tattoo kimono-style dress with a corset (that acts as a belt), black knee-high boots paired with flashy accessories and makes a statement with red lips and nails at the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute show.
