Mr Armani is never one to deny his followers a dramatic fashion show, and that is why the glamorous Zoe Saldana made the effort to be on his front row. The actress updated WWD on her summer so far; saying she had just wrapped actor-director Guillaume Canet's Blood Ties, in which Zoe co-stars with Marion Cotillard, the wife of the French director, Guillaume.
Over at Stephane Rolland couture – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West caused (or should that be kaused?) a kerfuffle by being late for the show, almost disrupting the first few looks. Surely Mr West, being a veteran of many a front row, not to mention several seasons of designing ready to wear under his own belt should know that fashion waits for no man?
The power couple also put in an appearance Givenchy, where the very talented Riccardo Tisci eschewed a runway show for Haute Couture in favour of a posed tableau vivant, as he usually does. One intriguing feature of the collection was a look posed with what looked like an enourmous wolf or Alsation dog. They must have found a particularly well trained animal to let loose on the squillion pound haute couture sample was all we could think about that.
