If you're into ogling fancy outfits, Paris Fashion Week provides ample wardrobe inspiration for months to come. Attendees pull out all the stops at top shows like Givenchy, Chloe, Lanvin or Stella McCartney. Best of all? Celeb guests are often clad in next season's goods, providing a peek at what trends to watch next fall. Audrey Marnay's fur-sleeved ensemble at Dior's presentation is consistent with the unusual use of fur we've been spotting on the runways.

Model Daisy Lowe kept her look casual but chic at Sonia Rykiel in a pair of silky plum pants accessorized with a stripey red-and-black satchel.
Russian model Elena Periminova was an advocate of extreme fur looks this season, including a poufy gray fur coat at Lanvin. The bright orange cap gave the look a fun, playful twist.

Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine was a busy lady this fashion week, but by far our favorite of her outfits was this faded striped blazer and coordinating sheer maxi dress. Even her mini-satchel picked up the same gray triangle pattern.

Another of Elena's over-the-top ensembles this week was an exaggerated white shirt dress by Victor & Rolf.

The impossibly stylish Jade Jagger arrived at Lanvin's front row wrapped in a silky white trench coat, which she later removed to reveal a purple jewel-tone cocktail dress.

French Vogue editor, Emanuelle Alt, seems to favor clean lines and timeless shapes. The tailored frock coat and over-the-knee boots she wore to Givenchy typified the editor's classic sense of style.

A champion of stylish understatement, model Elettra Rosselini sported this camel colored coat over a slim white dress to Stella McCartney. A clean black headband and strappy wedges kept the look from feeling little-girly.

Always-lovely Liv Tyler was also in Stella's front row. At first, we didn't think there was anything too special about her simple black sheath dress—but then we saw that leather varsity jacket.

Anna Wintour really know how to play with color in her wardrobe. Who knew a hot pink skirt and plum-colored blouse would feel so classic?

Nicole Richie ditched her usual long jersey maxi dress for an uncharacteristically sleek leather mini-dress at Givenchy. A tight bun and dramatic black eye makeup gave the look some extra polish.

Clean and classic, Naomi Apace's long-sleeved cocktail dress at Givenchy was one of our favorite looks of the week.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld arrived to Givenchy bedecked head-to-toe in a look from the label's spring 2011 collection. We were especially enamored of the sheer skirt, which was made a tad more practical layered beneath a thigh-skimming tunic.

Not one to shy away from the spotlight, Anna Dello Russo also sported an all-Givenchy outfit to Ricardo Tisci's fall 2011 show.

Another stylish red head making the rounds this week was Karen Elson, who rocked a playful khaki romper to Givenchy's after party.

If there were an official uniform of Paris Fashion Week, it might be an elongated tuxedo blazer and perfectly tailored trousers. We loved the shiny leather detailing on Valeria Biello's elongated tux jacket.
Burnt orange is a key trend this spring, and Clemence Poesy got a head start clad in a perfectly-cut corduroy blazer at Chloe.

At Chloe, Lou Lessange accented a perfect ivory blouse with a slim metallic scarf and shimmery python handbag.
