They came from the north, the south, the east and the west. Frankly they would have come from Saturn to see Stella's hotly anticipated show in the decadent surroundings of the Place de L'Opera.
As Anna Wintour arrived to view the collection, Paul McCartney kept control of his grandchildren and Kate Moss breezed in, models were treated to an early morning wake up massage with Sunday Riley's Good Genes Serum, (get thee some in Space NK now).
It was a whirl of dryer-wielding arms, make up brushes and mascara wands, (Max Factor's new ClumpDefy Volumising Mascara, out January. It defies clags and we defy you not to love it) as Ginta, Karlie Kloss, Bette Franke and Joan Smalls gathered for the showdown.
Which left mistress of make up ceremonies, Pat McGrath to whisk up a natural, fresh-flaced glow (Max Factor 3-in-1 Ageless Elixir we bow to your brilliance), line the lower lashes with Laura Mercier's palm tree green Jungle eye pencil and add a flick of said mascara in brown.
Centre parting hair before adding shine at the root with Wella's Hydrate Finish, Eugene Soulieman's one-product wonder left tips a natural texture for an overall effect that was 'as if the girls had done it themselves'.
In. Our. Stella McCartney dreams.
