(EVO) – The rebellious spirit of 80s rock and roll shook the house on Monday (March 9) night at a star-studded Saint Laurent Paris Fashion Week show.
The show started with a bang and a rattle, as large chains lifted the runway off the ground and a girl punk band’s music filled the hall in the city’s Carreau du Temple. Models bounded down the runway wearing torn-up fishnets and black leather boots, with mussed-up hair, bright red lipstick and thick black winged eyeliner that channelled early Joan Jett. French designer Hedi Slimane, who took the reins of the fashion house in 2012 and changed the name from its previous Yves Saint Laurent, evoked the gritty glitz and glamour of the morning after through powerful yet feminine looks in his Autumn/Winter ready-to-wear collection. Stars like American Actresses Salma Hayek and Jessica Chastain sat front row and gushed over the designs after the show. Also in attendance were Vogue editor Anna Wintour, musician Mark Ronson and co-founder of Yves Saint Laurent Pierre Berge. Paris Fashion Week runs through Wednesday (March 11).
