From Runway to Red Carpet: Rita Ora, Katy Perry and Rihanna Get First Wear of Paris Couture Designs

28 Jan 2014

The music A-lister's proved they are queens of style in designs by Valentino and Alexandre Vauthier

It's only a small few that ever get to wear them, but some of music's hottest have been sporting couture designs straight from the catwalk at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week months before they will be available to the rest of the world. Katy Perry, Rihanna and Rita Ora were spotted in spring/summer 14 couture designs by Valentino and Alexandre Vauthier that were presented to fashionistas in Paris just last week! It will usually take months for gowns to be tailor-made to fit for the few that can afford them, but these lucky ladies have managed to get their hands on these luxurious pieces just days after they were first revealed! Rumour has it the gowns were straight on a plane to LA as the Paris shows finished!

Katy Perry was wearing a music note printed tulle gown by Valentino at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Initially we weren't the biggest fans, but seeing it on the catwalk puts the dress into perspective and reveals the intricate work that went into creating it. 

Meanwhile RIhanna and Rita Ora were both wearing designs by Alexandre Vauthier to pre-Grammys parties earlier in the week. The edgy pieces were taken straight off the runway, and were clearly handpicked to suit each of the pop princess’s styles. 

For the rest of us we can only dream, but there's no doubt by the time summer comes round there will be plenty of couture-inspired high-street looks mimicking the ones these three lucky ladies wore!
