Fashion Month is so packed full of runway shows and major celebrity moments that it often feels like one big blur. Sure, we've taken note of the top spring 2023 trends and gathered outfit inspiration from street style. But we didn't have much time to truly appreciate all the intricate details — until now.

At Paris Fashion Week, our photographer, Kevin Tachman, went behind-the-scenes at multiple shows, capturing the clothing, accessories, and makeup from angles we hadn't seen before. The close-ups and cute, casual moments have us viewing the designs in a whole new light, and left us even more in awe of the craftsmanship and hard work behind each item (and complicated-looking cateye).

Dior

It's only a matter of time before these voluminous gowns and sexy bralettes begin popping up on every major red carpet.

Balmain

Cher may have appeared on the runway to promote the new Blaze collection of handbags, but let's not forget about the stunning sculptural pieces, which, according to a press release from the brand, were "constructed from natural raffia, jute cord, and twigs."

Poufy, fancy, yet still laid-back enough for everyday wear — that's what this brand does best (see: just how great these dresses look with chunky sneakers). Spring 2023 included floral motifs and water-like textures, ensuring the warmer seasons will still be as dreamy as ever.

Giambattista Valli

Pink is alive and well at Giambattista Valli, along with sparkles, ruffles, and tiny bows. Plus, those long drop earrings, which were paired with a handful of looks, will remain on our minds for months to come — so it's a good thing we've got a gorgeous, close-up shot of this super shiny accessory.

Thom Browne

The designer's spring 2023 fashion show featured Gwendoline Christie, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, a pink Barbie-like car, thong designs, and, yes, lots and lots of polka-dots.
