Paris Fashion Fun

I promised to take you along on some of my Paris experiences now that I’m living in the city full-time. So how about accompanying me to the designer Oscar Carvallo’s fashion week party?

I met Oscar at a peniche party a few months ago, during which he said he wanted to do the costumes for a DIE FOR ME film if one were ever made. So when I got an invitation last week to his end-of-Paris-fashion-week party, I didn’t hesitate to accept.

However, about an hour before party-start last night I was on Twitter begging for makeup tips from my friends at Epic Reads as well as make-up experts (okay, YA writers) Natalie Parker and Tessa Gratton. After leaving a pile of discarded dresses and shoes strewn across my apartment, I came up with this:

Revenants meet least in my mind

As for the rest, I will let the photos & captions speak for themselves. Welcome to your Paris fashion experience!

Me with the man of the evening, Oscar Carvallo

One of Oscar's dresses that I was lusting over

and yet another that I wasn't sure I could ever pull off, but I still had to worship it.

One of the perks of fashion week: male models. (This cutie's name is Sulabh Kalra and he lives in Milan.)

another perk: very interesting characters. This guy wasn't happy when I asked if his outfit was steampunk.

girl in the middle: the singer Inna Modja

fancy headgear

And last but not least, my friend Laila standing next to the house model, who is "retired" at age 31 and has a PhD in biochemistry and does AIDS research. (Um...where was I when they were passing out superhero genes?)

So – what do you think of your first Paris Fashion Week party? Tell me in the comments below and let me know what else you want me to bring you along to!

    Looks like a fun night. So love the beautiful full length gold dress and the dress the model is wearing. What fun it would be to dress up like that just for one evening!
