Paris Couture Week
On July 14, 1789, during the French Revolution, citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille prison and released the seven prisoners inside. Fast forward to Bastille Day, celebrated in the city of lights, all around the world, including here in Washington, D.C. What would we do without the French, and for that matter — French fashion?
So as some take to the streets and toast history, we bring you the best from Paris Couture Week.

I know it’s had to think about outerwear during mid-July, but this Jean Paul Gaultier piece gets us excited for fall. The spotted cuffs on this structured black coat are killing us … and that beret! In the words of Rachel Zoe, “I die.”
We think a modern-day Marie Antoinette would approve … Vive La France!
