Dior took over Paris’ iconic Place de la Concorde for a menswear show Friday whose theme was none other than the city of Paris itself.

Inside an annex, fashion editors joined a front row including Naomi Campbell to marvel at the heritage house’s spectacular decor. It created a near-life size Parisian bridge, replete with fake birds and fake water lapping underneath via plasma screen, just for the 15-minute collection.

Here are some highlights of the fall-winter 2022 menswear displays.

DIOR’S CITY OF LIGHT

Paris Fashion Week is back from its virus-induced slumber. At least that was what some front-row fashion editors uttered upon seeing Dior’s elaborate reconstruction of the Pont Alexandre III bridge, with its giant three-dimensional gilt-bronze horse statues and staff-holding nymphs that

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, a.k.a. Sylvie of “Emily in Paris,” channeled the Saint-Tropez-beach-dancing, bikini-over-pencil-skirt side of her fictional character at her latest real-life outing.

On Wednesday, Leroy-Beaulieu attended the Ami Fall 2022 show at Paris Fashion Week in a dress that left little up to the imagination. She channeled the subtly-sexy style of her on-screen counterpart — maybe not-so-subtle, considering it was completely transparent. The long-sleeve body-hugging, ankle-grazing sheer dress was a chic, ultra Parisienne front-row moment that not even Sylvie, who oozes meanness, could snub her nose at.

Leroy-Beaulieu swapped a pointed-toe pump for strappy sandals and sported a red manicure (just as any self-respecting French woman would), adding intrigue

Claudia Schiffer reflects on changes in fashion photography

Claudia Schiffer says fashion photography never used to be “made to be consumed instantly via social media”.

The 51-year-old supermodel has lamented on the changes in the industry – such as way digital media has overtaken many print magazines – to celebrate the launch of her photo book ‘Captive! Fashion Photography from the 90s’, which is connected to the exhibition she curated in Dusseldorf Museum Kunstpalast.

Asked about the differences between analogue and digital photography in fashion, she told PENTA: “Well, everything was shot on film and tests were in the form of Polaroids to gauge light, composition, and color.

“Today, the edit happens on the screen and imagery can be consumed instantly via social media.”

The catwalk queen suggested that magazines held more weight culturally, while the shoots had
