Hanae MoriHanae Mori's collection this season had enough stars in it to fill a galaxy. She covered her crisp crepe suits and slinky silk dresses with luminous clasps and five-pointed buttons, in looks meant for the woman who's not afraid to stand out. And just in case anyone missed the message, Madame Butterfly also sent out five-pointed handbags and covered the roof of the Carrousel's Salle Delorme with twinkling stars.Jean-Louis ScherrerThe house of Jean-Louis Scherrer has its priorities in order. They held their show for the arrival of Mme. Rafik Harari, wife of a Saudi businessman, who swept in wearing a sable coat, with her bodyguard right behind her. When the show started, it was with Arabian Nights music and floaty, gold-encrusted chiffon layers that were straight from the harem tent. There was even a kind of Chantilly chador effect in the big-brimmed straw hats that covered the models' faces, but let them see through an eye-slit cut in the brim. It was certainly a demonstration of staying close to the customer, a policy the house is extending into ready-to-wear by starting a personal-shopper service for Paris customers.Erik Mortensen's collection itself is evolving in a more conventional mode, with tunic suits in tweed and pinstripes, lots of bright flower prints and a group of strong evening columns. Renate Hirsch, the blonde threads-groupie who showed up in a dusty-pink mink accompanied by her young son in black motorcycle leathers, seemed to love it.
"In order for Shudu to wear garments, she needs to be able to put them on, just like you would in the real world. You have to digitize the outfits," said Cameron-James Wilson on dressing 3-D model @shudu.gram for her WWD photoshoot. #wwdfashion ( 📸: @cjw.photo )
“Shudu is a digital supermodel, a very glamour and amazing woman. But she’s 3-D,” says Cameron-James Wilson, a fashion photographer and the creature of @shudu.gram. Here, Shudu wears @cushnieetochs for her debut fashion editorial. #wwdfashion (📷: @cjw.photo)
“It is the fierce female performances that came before me that made be able to clearly identify for myself what it was that I wanted to do, what kind of artist I wanted to be, what kind of films I wanted to make,” said @brielarson at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards.

“On a personal level, it’s my vision to create a really different idea with their look to be at the epitome of women’s fashion in South Korea – to create a new milestone,” said stylist @chochowon on dressing K-pop’s most fashionable girl group, @blackpinkofficial.

For @ralphlauren, 2018 is a reason to celebrate: It marks the brand’s 50th year in business. Last year’s chauffeured show in Bedford, NY featuring his vintage car collection may have seemed like the big celebration to show-goers, but they were wrong. The official celebration will be held on September 7 during #NYFW. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdfashion (📷: @giovanni_giannoni_photo)
