Think: vintage shopping, Couture cowgirls, and Aperol Spritz.

Another day, another over-the-top beautiful Paris Couture Fashion Week diary—today’s is brought to you by none other than celebrity stylist, Cristina Ehrlich. Cov-alum Priyanka Chopra was by the brilliantly creative stylist’s side as she hit the Couture shows looking so effortlessly chic that we were left wishing it was us who was arm-in-arm with her. It’s obvious that this wasn’t Ehrlich’s first Couture rodeo as she made statements with her street style and visited the best of the best showrooms. Don’t believe us? Thankfully, we have the receipts to prove it.

“Coming to Haute Couture in Paris is an annual event in my calendar, usually with some sort of European holiday to bookend the days of shows, appointments and studio visits. For me, it is the beginning of the new season, as I return to the states ready for the approaching awards season,” Ehrlich told us.“Valentino, Giambattista [Valli] and Chanel are always the highlights of my week, but this year proved to surprise me, as I am sure many others would agree. Setting the bar high, early on the first day were American designers Rodarte and Proenza Schouler, both of which proved to hold their own against the competing collections of the storied European houses. 

“Starting the week off with a day spent exploring the treasures of the vintage markets (Les Puces de Saint-Ouen) was the perfect thing to focus my attention on the beauty that was ahead.


“Every trip to Paris should start with a day at one of the Puces on the outskirts of the city.”

“Discovering new jewelry designers in the vintage market of all places.”

“Inspired by all this divine vintage.”

“Perfect Parisienne accessories.”


“The week began with Ronald van der Kemp, which was such a fun start. I loved his nods to Rock n Roll as seen through a couture eye, and his models all possessed a really fun energy on the runway.”

“This was one of my favorite looks from Ronald van der Kemp. The idea of a couture cowgirl is priceless.”

“The Proenza Schouler invitation was a subtle hint to one of the many nods to Haute Couture that they would incorporate into their SS18 collection.”

“Feathers and a side of admirers at Proenza.”

“After a morning of shows and then appointments with a client [Priyanka Chopra] who flew in from NY, a well deserved round of spritz’s kept us cool on the hottest day of the week.”


“It was all in the details at Rodarte—you can almost smell the flowers on this dress .”

“Perfect summer garden party attire—the Rodarte show will be something Im talking about well into 2018.”

“Love to see where an idea began—getting into the collection at Peter Dundas.”

“Playing dress up with Peter and Priyanka.”

“Peter debuted his eponymous collection this season, which was one of the more exciting moments for me. I loved the juxtaposition of the modern silhouettes against the 18th century architecture of the private home he showed the collection in.”

“A hand embroidered coat that was part of the Dundas debut collection.”

“Peter made trips around the world and back to create his debut collection. These shoes traveled back and forth between India and Italy four times before landing in Paris for the show.”

“Having a very Parisienne moment with Priyanka.”

“I really loved all of the gowns at Schiaparelli this season, but this particular color combination is always a favorite of mine.”

“Loving this ’70s inspired rocker-chic look.”

“In case I didn’t pack enough…”

“Keeping with the theme, pink was the color of Couture here at a Re-See for Giambattista Valli.”

“My assistant joked that I was starting to take on the pink theme—wearing a Mansur Gavriel bag and Mariela Montiel shoes.”

“My dear friend Salvo directed my team and I across the Siene to Buly, which was a true sensory escape from the busy of the shows.”

“My first love before fashion, dance.”

“My dear friend Salvo, on our way to an appointment.”

“Already gearing up for boot season at Balmain.”

“Olivier Rousteing’s new accessories collection doesn’t disappoint.”

“The summers in Paris are always unpredictable, so for the Armani Prive show, which happened to fall on the 4th of July, I chose this red-white-and blue striped dress from Monse and my favorite Gabriela Hearst bag”

“The flowers at the dinner following Armani Privé were nothing short of breathtaking.”

“This beaded gown at Valentino immediately struck a cord with me as being the most obvious and beautiful choice of the collection for the red carpet.”
