Naomi Campbell makes a rare catwalk appearance at Couture Week

At Haute Couture week in Paris, a five-day extravaganza where designers showcase their most exquisite and painstakingly created pieces, there’s little need for a grounding in reality.

Not when Karl Lagerfeld can have a model replica of the Eiffel Tower built inside the Grand Palais for the Chanel show or Azzedine Alaïa​ can make a triumphant return to the circuit after a six-year hiatus by sending Naomi Campbell down the catwalk in a fur coat and teetering crown of plastic-wrapped hair. 

The fantasy was felt at the Valentino show where hot pink capes added a welcome touch of drama; at Fendi, too, where explosions of floral applique, lace and felt added texture. Meanwhile John Galliano played with glamour with voluminous re-imagining of the classic trench coat at Maison Margiela​. 

Prettiness was a constant theme throughout the week too, with dreamy tulle confections at Giambattista Valli and froths of feathers at Zuhair Murad​.

Perhaps the highlight of the week however was the presence of pop diva Celine Dion, the recently anointed fashion icon of 2017 who whooped with delight at the Giambattista Valli​ show from her plum front row seat next to American Vogue editor Anna Wintour. 

Other celebrities sitting on the front row included Katy Perry, Tilda Swinton and Jennifer Lawrence.
