Unless you spent September living in outer Siberia then you cannot have failed to notice that the Kardashians basically owned Paris Fashion Week. From North West stealing the show at Givenchy – y’know when Kimye made the “totally last minute, spontaneous decision” to dress their one year old in a black leather n’ lace ensemble and take her with them – to Kendall walking every major runway in town, the Klan made more headlines than the collections themselves put together. At Chanel most of my seatmates were snapping more pictures of Kris Jenner taking selfies with the incredible set that than of the set itself. Not judging, I took a fair few myself. I, like many other people, have slightly mixed feelings about this turn of events. Rewind a few years and Kim Kardashian couldn’t have paid to attend the Paris shows.

I’m not for one second saying that Kim et al haven’t worked their ample behinds off to get where they are, or don’t deserve to be there.

PFW SS15 day 6 was one I’d been looking forward to so much that the mere thought of it practically made me hyperventilate. That sounds melodramatic I know but with Chanel, Valentino and McQueen on the schedule can you blame me? After slipping into my all red Valentino ensemble, an outfit it pained me greatly to return to it’s rightful owners, I tottered down Montmarte hill and boarded the metro bound for the Grand Palais. Karl Lagerfeld’s spectacular shows are the stuff of fashion legend and I couldn’t believe that I would be attending Chanel for the very first time…
