Forget the cat walk! Everyone knows the real excitement in recent years of Paris Fashion Week (and global fashion week, for that matter) is what everyone’s wearing when they’re walking to/from shows, or hanging out backstage. Off-duty ensembles are on the same level of sought-after as street style, so when you’re looking for styling tips, direct your eyes accordingly. Here are a few of our favorite babes in killer denim outfits at Paris Fashion Week.
Always hip and trending with a bit of off kilter cool, Alexa Chung styled up one of designer’s Stella McCartney LDDs (little denim dresses) for an easy look. She paired her denim sheath with moss-hued Chloé snakeskin pumps and a boxy satchel.
The beautiful Poppy Delevingne was spotted in Paige Denim Verdugo Ultra Skinny at Miu Miu. We are loving the python print jeans that she paired with a leather jacket and cable knit sweater.
It girl and uber-chic stylist Caroline Sieber was also attending the Miu Miu show rocking a pair of ultra short cut-off shorts with some mega stilettos. You don’t have to be in fashion to know fashion, but this is a look we are going to steal—STAT!
Supermodel Miranda Kerr takes to the stage just as graciously as she does behind the scenes whilst attending the Stella McCartney show. She showed us how to strut your stuff in a mini cut off denim skirt. She paired the destroyed denim bottom with an oversized tee, a black blazer, and booties. We love the retro shades too.
Now it’s your turn to try these looks out!

Finding the right fit for a pair of jeans can be quite an obstacle course. One must consider every angle, from the waistline to the hem… and then there’s washes, trends, and care instructions to consider (and the ultimate question: does my butt look good?). So it’s no wonder Ashley Olsen wore her custom fitted Earnest Sewn jeans to Nylon’s private dinner (which celebrated the October 2011 issue and her cover-star sister, Elizabeth Olsen). The young fashion icon was recently spotted in the same custom fit skinny jeans in Daija as she dashed out of her hotel during Paris Fashion Week. The option for custom made jeans can be pricey and unavailable for the non-celebs, but don’t fret! Denim Therapy can tailor the jeans you have already chosen as your fav (or the jeans you think could become your fav with a little nip/tuck). Find out how you can rock jeans that look as custom-made as Ashley!

One of our favorite collections to come out of Paris Men’s Fashion Week this time around is that of Mugler. We’re totally digging the overall 80s references: pastel shades, strong neon colors like bright highlighter green, tons of lurex and windbreaker details, and some killer stone washed denim looks to point out a few. With a title like Brothers of Arcadia, huge metallic jewelry resembling armor, and the overall futuristic tone of it all we’re definitely getting a futuristic gladiator feel. With this marking the brands mere sophomore collection, needless to say we’ll totally be keeping an eye out.

Gosh I wish I were in Paris right now, having the time of my life with all the stylish people! It must be a feast for the eyes to see Parisians and fashionphiles strutting their stuff on and off the runway. Denim and record label April 77 didn’t miss a beat when they decided to throw their own party in honor of Paris Fashion Week. I wonder if we’ll see their signature melancholy-stoic models — who look like they went to the Byzantine-Gustav Klimt school of modelling — hanging around the party, looking like they don’t care about how cool they are to be in the company of April 77.
