The 48th annual Paris Fashion Week — which ran from Sept. 28-Oct. 6 — drew a parade of film stars, models and international style hounds to the capital of chic. With veteran, 50-something supermodels from Naomi Campbell to Carla Bruni gracing the catwalks to the screaming delight of the crowds, the fashion set was also wowed by a closing night blow-out featuring every top label that celebrated the much loved former Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz, who passed away from COVID-19 earlier this year.
