While New York Fashion Week is electic and no one does decadence quite like Milan, we have to admit that we leave our hearts in Paris when it comes to the fashion weeks of the world. The glamour and the magic that is Paris Fashion Week begins again next week, and we couldn’t be more excited to find out what’s in store from the likes of Dior and Chanel. But Paris Fashion Week isn’t just about the clothes. From the models off-duty to the fabulous parties, Paris Fashion Week reminds us every season that beauty is really about believing in your own fabulousness, and no one does that better than the women of Paris. To this day, the beauty products they swear by and the perfumes they wear influence the rest of us. In honour of Paris Fashion Week, here are some of our favourite vintage perfume ads from Paris.
Lanvin, timeless then and forever.
F. Millot Paris, perfect for an American in Paris, obvee.
