Completing her rounds at Paris Fashion Week, Heart Evangelista certainly has tons of stories to tell. Which is why, we just couldn't let the week slide without being let in on all the fashionable highlights! As told by Heart herself, here's what went down during Couture Week in Paris:

DAY 1

Before the runway madness, Heart had a chill day around the city. "I didn't watch any shows, but I did wear the Dolce & Gabbana pasta dress!"

DAY 2

"I watched four shows on this day. For the Schiaparelli and Georges Hobeika shows, I wore a pink Balmain jacket, a pair of Topshop jeans, Gucci shoes, and a D&G bag which I handpainted."

Schiaparelli

"The show was held at the beautiful Plaza Vendome. His collection's theme was [about the] liberation of women. It was definitely fashion that's fun," Heart explains, pertaining to the most notable pieces from the collection, like the models' statement earrings and the clothes' impeccable details.

"I can relate well to this collection because it took inspiration from Picasso’s paintings, as shown in the trompe l'oeil effects. I also wondered what Elsa would have looked like wearing these creations."

Georges Hobeika

"The collection was ethereal. The beading was glimmering, the trains were lush, and I love that it represented Middle Eastern fashion (like Zuhair Murad, which I saw, too). The sparkles and sophistication [of the collection] were a new kind of magic! Each gown was fit for a princess."

Ralph & Russo

"Ralph & Russo's show was a lavish display of crystals, sequins, feathers and pearls. The highlight was seeing Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor walk down the runway in her amzing bridal gown. No one could have walked that runway with that couture piece better than her! I also learned that it took a total of 6,000 hours to complete the hand embroidery of that gown—whew! So it’s a really special piece."

Giambattista Valli

"I've never seen so many stylish women come together like what I witnessed in the Valli show. The show was held at the French Archives, and the couture was lavished with vintage looking jewels, crystals, and embroidery. It was grand."

"A pink tulle gown which had a long train reminded me of the ballet. But each piece is a sure hit for me. It’s hard to pick just one that I’d like to wear, but the red number was to die for!"

DAY 3

Dolce & Gabbana Atelier

"I was invited to the Dolce & Gabbana atelier to see the Alta Moda collection. Alta Moda is for the most discerning and exclusive couture clients, so I feel really blessed and lucky to have been invited. Each outfit is a one-off, and everything is made to measure.

"They put me in this red dress and I felt like a princess!"

Balmain

"I dropped by the Balmain boutique as well. When I visited, this embellished mini dress became my favorite piece!"

Ulyana Sergeenko

"For Ulyana's show, I wore a suit and a shirt that were both from D&G. I also wore my handpainted D&G Sicily bag, and a pair of Aquazzura shoes."

"I've always been open that Ulyana is my ultimate favorite designer. Her lineup this year reminded me of film classics: Alcapone meets New Orleans meets Michael Jackson. It was very theatric."

"My favorites include the one with a black hat (modeled by supermodel Lily Donaldson), and the one with black lace straps (perfect for #lovemarieXblacks!)."

DAY 4

Elie Saab

"Elie Saab's collection was very romantic and dreamy. It had quite a medieval feel, which reminded me of Game of Thrones. My favorite piece from it was the emerald green wide-legged pants with a short-sleeved fur coat. It even had a train—it was so regal!"

Zuhair Murad

"For Zuhair Murad's show, I wore a white Mark Bumgarner top and a pair of Zara jeans with a Gucci clutch and Loubutin shoes."

"Inspired by the Gibson Girls 20th century, I can describe this collection as romantic and opulent. As always, Zuhair perfected his nude effects and silhouettes. Even if the pieces were sheer, they weren't vulgar. He drapes a woman's body in a really sexy, feminine, and sophisticated way. I love the plunging detail at the back of his gowns."
