Does it get any more Paris Fashion Week than this?

Saint Laurent set the bar high on Day 1 of Paris Fashion Week by staging a nighttime show underneath the Eiffel Tower.

The French monument sparkled as the ultimate backdrop just moments before the Spring 2018 collection made its way down the catwalk. In terms of a show venue, could it possibly get any more Parisian than this?

Models emerged on the runway as a smoke machine created a dusky glow and the glistening Eiffel Tower lit up the distance.

As for the collection, it was a mix of dramatic pouf silhouettes, fringe boots, embellished pieces, and leather mixed with lace. Kaia Gerber made her Paris Fashion Week debut in one of the pouf dresses in a black patent finish.

With a backdrop like that, however, it was hard to focus just on the clothes.

DONE
