Alber Elbaz celebrated 125 years of Lanvin last Thursday at the National Fine Arts School in Paris with his Spring/Summer 15 collection. The line drew inspiration from Jeanne Lanvin's archives. Model Violetta Sanchez opened the show in an asymmetric black dress. Amber Valletta followed in a tank dress that laced up on one side. Key pieces included a tailored black and white suit with flowing trousers, a billowing ivory gown and a strapless coral creation that simply glided along the catwalk. There were structured pieces as well that fit models neatly. Nudes, navies and coppery tones abounded in solids and giant prints of deer at one point. Pat McGrath kept makeup natural with a subtle eye shadow palette, minimal mascara and a soft pink pout. Runway stylist, Guido Palau, went for a simple yet classic knot. He finger combed models' hair before tying it up with a gold accessory.

Cinched shirt dresses, a sea of denim and leather garments, Japanese floral prints, mottled fur vests and belted trenches ruled the runway at Gucci's womenswear show influenced by nautical and military themes. We loved the relaxed silhouettes that paid tribute to '70s style with wide legged jeans, braided leather belts and kimono inspired separates. Backstage, makeup artist, Pat McGrath, worked with the brand's cosmetics line, which was created in partnership with Gucci's creative director, Frida Giannini, and made its debut on the runway. Models wore two tone shimmering brown eye shadows lined with gold and paired with a nude lip. Runway stylist, Orlando Pita, kept hair natural, using his fingers to create an off center part. He raked hair back into an uneven ponytail at the nape of the neck that featured finger combed ends. British top model, Kate Moss, and American Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, sat front row next to Charlotte Casiraghi, the face of Gucci's new beauty range.

We recently wrote a story on Burberry's newest fragrance and who do we meet at London Fashion Week? None other than Cara Delevingne herself accompanied by the legendary Kate Moss - in the flesh. Of course the iconic models sat front row at Burberry Prorsum's wild, Spring/Summer 15 show, which featured a kaleidoscope of colors and textiles. The British luxury fashion house, established in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, showcased designs very different from its classic, check lined trench coat. Burberry Prorsum, which represents the most fashion forward collection, offered design inspiration for the tailored Burberry London line and more casual Burberry Brit collection. Christopher Bailey, Burberry's chief creative and CEO, re-imagined our favorite denim jacket complete with youthful peplum, sheepskin lining and ostrich feather trim. We delighted in a range of muted pink, yellow and orange tulle bandage dresses pieced together, pleated and paired with cropped mixed media denim jackets and white sneakers followed by tops and dresses made entirely of rows and rows of oversize discs resembling mermaid scales. Neil Moodie was responsible for the tousled hair worn loose or tucked into models' collars. The models also sported bushy, brushed brows with a matte red lip as the focal point. Makeup artist, Wendy Rowe, warmed up features with bronzer and a light touch of copper shadow to define the eyes.
