Maggie Gyllenhaal's pink pumps were the only hint of color in her otherwise demure black outfit. She appeared at the Louis Vuitton show in Paris (held at the Cour Carree at the Louvre) in the company of Sofia Coppola, Dita von Teese, and director Wes Anderson.

Rihanna, John Galliano and Lucy Liu
Designer John Galliano was flanked by Rihanna and Lucy Liu at the showing of his Fall-Winter 2008-2009 collection. The lavish catwalk, which was covered with buddhas and birds and featured models in clothes inspired by 1930s Hollywood, was set up in the Grand Hall de la Villette, a Parisian exhibition hall.
Kanye West and Lucy Liu
Kanye West bonded with Lucy Liu in the front row of John Galliano's show. West was one of the most ubiquitous presences at Paris Fashion Week, taking in shows every day of the week with girlfriend Alexis Phifer.
Mary-Kate Olsen and a friend celebrated the end of Paris Fashion Week at a party hosted by New York store Opening Ceremony. The young fashionista wore a bright red jacket and accessorized with a leopard-print scarf and matching headband.
Mischa Barton and Milla Jovovich
Mischa Barton and Milla Jovovich showed a little shoulder at a Paris Fashion Week party for French actress and model Lou Doillon.
Chloe Sevigny-in Paris at the Opening Ceremony party-is following in the footsteps of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Kate Moss and Sarah Jessica Parker, with a foray into fashion design. Her collection, which is for sale in New York and Los Angeles, mirrors the actress's eclectic, downtown look.
Rihanna posed next to a classic Chanel rosette outside the Karl Largerfeld-designed show. The fashion maven-in-the-making, who has been in Paris for the week, dressed for the show in a brightly-patterned jacket and royal blue pumps.
Ashley Olsen, Mary Kate Olsen and Karl Lagerfeld
Chanel designer and fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld showed sisters Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen some love at the showing of his Fall-Winter 2008-2009 ready-to-wear collection. In fact, he had them to thank for such a successful show, as the sisters inspired his fresh, modern take on the legendary brand.
Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich
Julianne Moore and hubby Bart Freundlich took in the Yves Saint Laurent ready-to-wear show (along with Kanye West, Dita von Teese and Courtney Love) at the Grand Palais in Paris. The collection was shown in a huge tent hung with futuristic white awnings, on models with black, bowl-shaped wigs.
Inside the Chanel show, models wearing the new Fall-Winter collection appeared (along with designer Karl lagerfeld) on a merry-go-round decorated with giant versions of signature Chanel accessories-quilted bags, strings of pearls, and hats.
Ginnifer Goodwin and Rebecca Romijn
Stylish small-screen stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Rebecca Romijn sat front row at the Valentino show held at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris. Former Gucci designer Alessandra Fachinetti presented a debut collection that respectfully emulated the designs of recently retired master Valentino Garavani. "Elegance, femininity, that's what it is all about," she told reporters following the presentation. "The style of Valentino is the basis of my work, that cannot be changed. But the proportion is more updated."
Fashionable actress Winona Ryder admired the latest collection from the house of Valentino during Paris Fashion Week. The designs included romantic ruffled dresses with bright accents. Kanye West and fiance Alexis Phifer also took in the show.
Ali Larter and Eve
TV divas Ali Larter and Eve dazzled in tailored coats at the Emanuel Ungaro show in Paris. The beautiful duo took in the debut collection by 23-year-old designer Esteban Cortazar. Did the wunderkind fear the challenge of taking over a major design house? Not at all. "I think the younger you are, the less pressure you feel," Cortazar told the AP. "It's definitely a challenge, but it's a fun challenge."
Lucy Liu and Monica Cruz
Lucy Liu sat front row with Monica Cruz at the Dior by John Galliano show in Paris. Both actresses have a keen eye for fine design: Cruz collaborates on a line of clothing for Mango with sister Penelope Cruz, and Liu has a solo art exhibition opening in Munich in May. "I've been painting since I was 18 and have grown quite fond of the arts," Liu told Fashion Week Daily. "Dior's clothes, in a way, are like art as well."
No one can say that Roberto Cavalli doesn't know how to have a good time-the designer, who showed his latest collection in Milan last week, made an entrance at the Crazy House burlesque club in Paris with a sextet of dancers. Cavalli celebrated the opening of his Parisian Just Cavalli boutique with guests such as Kanye West, Alexis Phifer, Vivica A. Fox and Dita Von Teese.
Alexis Phifer and Kanye West
Ghita designer Alexis Phifer and fiance Kanye West took in the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris. The avant-garde collection, which included molded wool coats reading 'No' and 'Wow' perfectly embodied West's style philosophy. "Pop and luxury," he told Harper's Bazaar. "Everything about me is pop and luxury."
Lindsay Lohan and Fergie
Fashion lovers Lindsay Lohan and Fergie looked absolutely G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S in the front row at the Dolce amp Gabbana show. The design duo presented a collection of western-inspired looks for Fall 2008.

No frocks required-Sheryl Crow and Naomi Campbell took in the Dolce & Gabbana show in pants and jackets from the design duo. Campbell added a little extra star style in a T-shirt emblazoned with the handsome mug of Steve McQueen. Monica Belluci (not pictured) continued the front-row trend in a pin-striped suit, also from Dolce & Gabbana.
