It would be a lie to say that the haute couture shows aren’t the most anticipated events in the world of fashion because frankly, it’s that one week in the calendar that really stop us dead in our tracks. It’s not just because of the exquisite handmade pieces or the bevy of personalities gracing the spectacular shows, for while the front row action is the first to cause frenzy, it’s often the happenings behind closed doors that tell one of the biggest stories.
Neither Anna Wintour nor Diane Kruger can replace our need to see the scenes running up to the actual show. If there’s something we’d want to look at over and over again, they’re the backstage photos, which remind us that models — of supermodel status or not — know how to have fun despite the extravagant garments, shoes, and accessories they’re wearing.
From Karlie Kloss patiently waiting for hairdressers to finish at the Atelier Versace show to the Chanel models giggling up a storm, we look at some of our favorite behind-the-scenes photos from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Click through the slideshow above to have a glimpse of the preparations and whatnot during the busy couture shows.
