What the World's Most Stylish Are Wearing to Couture Fashion Week

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, known by many as the "ultimate" fashion week, has come around for another season. It's a chance for designers to demonstrate the heights of their creativity and mastery of fabric. These collections are here to inspire and excite industry insiders and the public alike. Meanwhile, on the streets of Paris, another show is running in real time—one that is just as significant as than the grand spectacles happening behind closed doors. That's right: it's the street style girls travelling from show to show. From Pernille Teisbaek's wild tiger-print maxi to Caroline Issa's belted sundress, these style mavens have left no stone unturned in their search for paparazzi-appropriate looks. Scroll down to discover the most inspiring street style we spotted.

Style Notes: Deborah Reyner Sebag's outfit is a celebration of all things pink. Also we predict that her Rejina Pyo rope bag is set to become a trend.

Style Notes: Dad style rules in Lisa Aiken's khaki shorts and Topman white tee combo. We also thoroughly approve of the Staud bucket bag addition.
