Rolland’s show-goers had the opportunity to view his sculptural pieces at closer range than usual, and the designer delivered dramatic ball gowns fit for the Opera Garnier for their viewing pleasure. (Twitter)

At Stéphane Rolland, structured silhouettes and three-dimensional, theatrical details stood out. The beauty look was clean with a dewy lip and a sharp cateye.

Full-on bombshell sexiness was the name of the game at French label Alexandre Vauthier, where the first few looks, comprising thigh-high boots, crotch-skimming basics and chunky overcoats boldly laid out the designer’s intentions. (Twitter)

Although French couturier Alexandre Vauthier’s ­collection was high on signature blacks, it was the leather-sheen of this pop of red that stood out on the ramp.

At Armani, the sunnies went retro and rimmed with sheen. The lavenders and lilacs of the spring season were offset with a clean beauty look with bold brows and a glossy lip to go.

With its exaggerated silhouettes and voluminous ruffles, Dice Kayek’s Spring 2016 Haute Couture collection was mostly drama and a little pomp. Titled Woven Tales and described by the brand as “a fantasy sewn of oddly familiar silhouettes,” the collection boasted oversized peplums and belled silhouettes, festoons of feathers on shoulders, and crystal-studded bibs.

We fell in love with this look by Dice Kayek on the French runway. The cape silhouette, studded with bird motifs, gave a fantastical vibe to the ensemble.

Chanel put up a grand show like every time, with Lagerfeld’s vision as detailed as ever. The runway turned into a boxed, doll-house inspired mansion, all created with eco-friendly material. What we loved the most was the beauty look — black swan-esque eye makeup and croissant-inspired buns. And the shimmery capes were not be missed either!

You’d remember them as a designer duo that Bollywood ladies love. So we made sure we kept a close watch on Ralph & Russo’s latest showcase that was again full of red carpet-worthy dresses.
