The celebrities who graced the front row of these events not only witnessed the designers' extraordinary creations, but also became the stars of their own looks, captivating the audience with elegant and avant-garde choices.

Schiaparelli: fusion of extravagance and elegance

Schiaparelli's runway set the tone for the week, and the celebrities on the front row stood out with their fashion choices. Jennifer Lopez opted for an all-white ensemble that captured the essence of the fashion house. A high-neck sweater and a coat with three-dimensional petal motifs were the perfect choice. This look was enhanced with accessories, such as a black handbag with a golden face, the famous Schiaparelli Face Bag, oval earrings and golden glasses.
