Kim Kardashian and Nicole Kidman’s surprise appearances on the Balenciaga runway wowed style watchers, as did Olivier Rousteing’s guest couture collection for Jean-Paul Gaultier

Haute Couture Week is all about celebrating extravagant designs and exceptional craftsmanship on the runway, and the autumn/winter 2022/23 collections shown so far have surpassed those expectations.

Fendi and Elie Saab delivered modern femininity, Viktor & Rolf played with major proportions and Vetements put their own spin on Haute Couture.

These are Tatler’s top picks for the best looks from Paris, with more to come.
