Susan Tabak home This season, with Azzaro awaiting the arrival of a new designer, Mathilde Castello Branco (who will make her debut with Fall 2012), an in-house design team put together a small, capsule collection of evening wear. Most of it was quite lovely, but very different from the...

Susan Tabak home Susan on her way to the Carven défilé This was my first opportunity to see the work of Guillaume Henry, the new designer at Carven. I was eager to attend this show, not merely because the maison 's current incarnation is new to me, but also because the Carven brand name is...

Susan's been following the career of Anthony Vaccarello since he started, just a few seasons ago–but he's come a long way in a short time. Join her as she takes in this season's collection, which is surely destined to kick him into high gear. Then it's off to a private suite at Galeries...

It's another beautiful Indian Summer day in early-autumn Paris, and another day spent previewing the Spring/Summer Prêt-à-Porter for 2012. First, join Susan at the Lanvindéfilé, where the star-studded audience is wowed by a parade of lean, leggy models in sleek jumpsuits, slim skirts and...

Join Susan as she takes in the Spring 2012 collections at two storied French houses: Guy Laroche and Carven. At the former, artistic director Marcel Marongiu breathes new life into the brand with feminine clothes inspired by "art, architecture, movies and emotion"–all variations on...

Anthony Vaccarello designs clothes that can look drop-dead chic on the right sort of body–one that's slender, of course, and preferably all legs. (That's Gwyneth Paltrow wearing one of his slit-up-to-there dresses on the March 2012 cover of Harper's Bazaar.) Join Susan on the first day of...

Susan Tabak home I'm a fan of Anthony Vaccarello and his distinctive, super-skinny clothes, made for girls like Lou Doillon, Laititia Crahay and Audrey Marnay (who were all seated in the front row at his recent show). Anthony's designs look amazing on them–but they don't really work for the...

Guy Laroche Spring 2012 Susan and Michelle Harper, both wearing Guy Laroche In honor of Marcel, I wore a red satin dress from his current collection: red's a great color for me that I don't wear often enough. I had it altered to be a touch shorter than it was on the runway, because that's
