The designer worked a touch of sci-fi — think 1982’s “Blade Runner” — into a special collection showing off footwear that acted as a “second skin.” Bags and shoes were coordinated while some styles featured cutouts and contrasting materials.[caption id="attachment_10830551" align="aligncenter" width="633"] For the second time, Pierre Hardy presented his Atelier line of his most sophisticated and experimental styles during Paris Fashion Week.[/caption][caption id="attachment_10830552" align="aligncenter" width="641"] Inspired by Pris’ bodysuit in “Blade Runner,” the “second-skin” pumps, ankle boots, zipped biker boots and over-the-knee boots tightly sheathed the feet and legs like second skins.[/caption][caption id="attachment_10830553" align="aligncenter" width="641"] Playing around with the retro idea of coordinating one’s bag and shoes, Hardy embellished his leather goods collection with carved cutouts.[/caption][caption id="attachment_10830554" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The styles were revved up with colorful geometrical cutouts, contrasting materials — varnished leather and suede — and highlighted piping in white, silver or red.[/caption]SEE ALSO: Accessories of the Day: The Top Bags, Shoes and More From Paris Fashion Week Fall 2017 >>

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
