Social media scoop: Behind the scenes at Paris Fashion Week

Au revoir, mon amour

As Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, we chart the best of what the season had to offer: Food binges, sunshine splurges and of course, some Kardashian drama

1. The one-stop centre
The choice cafè for the creme de la creme in Paris? Cafè de Flore. Located on the corner of Boulevard Saint-Germain and Rue Saint-Benoît, it's long known to be the spot to people-watch some of the most glamorous of visitors such as Irina Shayk and Hailey Baldwin.

2. Food, glorious food
What's a trip to Paris without sampling some of its finest cuisines? Whether it's succulent oysters, the humble French fry (which is actually of Belgian origin) or a picture-perfect breakfast spread, models such as Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid flock to the French capital for more than just fashion.

Instagram | @doutzen Always a good idea #ritzparis #pfw

4. Quote-worthy
Former supermodel and French first lady Carla Bruni shows us how overwhelming the press can really get at the technology-inspired Chanel show.

Instagram | @carlasarkozy Congratulations to all the professionals who work hard to share the beauty and art of fashion!

5. Time-out Paris
Liu Wen, Imaan Hammam (who recently celebrated her 20th birthday) and Sara Sampaio took some time out from their busy schedules to enjoy the best of Paris — by both day and night.

6. Burn, baby, burn
Check out who Singaporean model Sheila Sim bumped into at the Chanel show. Jealous! 

Instagram | @sheila_sim Respect and admiration. Fan girl mode is on. @usher  #sheilalovesherjob #PFW #ChanelxNuYouxSheila #DataCenterChanel #Springsummer2017 #Usher

7. Kendall and Anwar shack up
Well, not really. But the duo did spark some fires after they both posted this image onto their respective Instagrams. Anwar Hadid's the youngest of the Hadids and is an aspiring model.

8. Empathy, please
Probably the biggest celebrity news of the week was the robbing of Kim Kardashian. At gunpoint. Pretty scary if you ask us, although some didn't quite share the empathy. Other celebrities were quick to defend her.


9. We're with Kim
Robbery ain't pretty and we sure don't wish it upon anyone. Caitlyn Jenner and Miroslava Duma were quick to take their stand and support the Kardashian. 

Instagram | @caitlynjenner Love my girl! After hearing the full story, I'm so thankful she's okay. It's a reminder for us all to be careful in the uncertainty of this world

10. Louis Vuitton's best girls
Nicolas Ghesquière brought out his best "gal-pals" at the Louis Vuitton show: Adèle Exarchopoulos, Alicia Vikander, Léa Seydoux, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Connelly and Miranda Kerr.
