Anyone can say that great style takes root in that ever-elusive combination of polish and whimsy, but this slideshow proves it. An eye for detail — whether it’s a slash of red lipstick, some clear nail polish, or a zipper left slightly undone — is what pulls together a combination of otherwise disparate or even uninteresting items. But outfit-making touches can also be elaborate, which is part of the fun; what’s a fashion crowd without a feather-fringed leather vest, for example, or pearls affixed to the back of a woman’s bare neck like a row of buttons? Like any true finale, this last Paris slideshow features some of fashion’s biggest stars; it should satisfy your eye-candy needs for at least a few more days.
