Rachel Brosnahan Went to Paris Fashion Week and Took Photos of Dogs Eating Baguettes
If you've envisioned Paris Fashion Week being way more glamourous than it is fun, you definitely need to see it through Rachel Brosnahan's eyes. The actress, who you're likely well-acquainted with after binging all three seasons of her Amazon show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, recently took a trip abroad to attend Dior's Fall 2020 show, and ended up having as many touristy fun moments as she did front-row fashion ones.
Of course, Brosnahan — who consistently kills it on the red carpet, wearing dresses of every color, sequins, and bold prints — was thrilled to dress up and get a firsthand look at feminism-inspired designs from Dior's creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. But, in between all the style, she did what many would do during a trip to Paris: take pictures with friends at the top of the Eiffel Tower, eat macaroons, and obsess over French dogs enjoying a French baguette.
Luckily, the star shared her photos with InStyle, giving us an inside look at what it's like to get glam and sit front row — which, in this case means highlighting how many dogs her seatmate Demi Moore has, too.
Ready to Jet
"Paris here I come!"
A Quick Bite
"First thing on agenda: macaroons and (not pictured) copious amounts of caffeine."
"At the Dior showroom to do my fitting for the Dior show and the opening of the Harper’s Bazaar exhibition at Musée des Arts Décoratifs. It’s fair to say I swooned all over this place."
"Met up with my favorite travel buddy, Karlee, and some friends at Milord in Montmartre. Did some serious damage on the wine and cheese front."
"Started day two off with a visit to the top of the Eiffel Tower and lived our full Madeline dreams. Also convinced a stranger to take 95732 wind-blown pics of us doing this."
A Sweet Sighting
"Stopped in a very French cafe to warm up and spotted three very French dogs eating very French baguette. We vow to learn to speak French very well by this time next year."
"Saw our brilliant friend Tristan Robin in Le Banquet at Theatre De Paris. One of the most delightful theatrical experiences in recent memory. Crossing all my limbs that this one makes its way to the US so we can see it again."
Most Important Meal of the Day
"It’s the day of the show! Starting off with a breakfast of champions..."
A Quick Trick
"Next up is the old face-in-an-ice-bucket-for-as-long-as-you-can-stand-it trick. The brain freeze is brutal, but boy, does it make you look and feel alive!"
"After hair and makeup with the wonderful Peter Lux and Emma Day, it's time to get dressed and put the finishing touches on our purple smokey eye. Our gang has lovingly dubbed this little ponytail 'the duster pouf.'"
And We're Off
"Dior Dreams. This was the first and only look I tried on for the show — I may never take it off!"
Arriving in Style
The Gang's All Here
"Seat neighbors! It was close quarters so we got friendly fast. Did you know that Demi has seven dogs? Goals."
Strike a Pose
"Just a few women contaminating a move to Clitorida. I would follow InStyle editor-in-chief Laura Brown there any day."
"Day four started with a sensible trip to the Louvre. I love it because it feels like you could spend days wandering and would still only see half of it."
Time to Work
"Then back into hair, makeup, and gorgeous frocks for the opening of the Harper’s Bazaar Exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs."
A Great Guest
"It was really special to be able to experience a taste of Paris Fashion week with my best gal. Our schedules are so hectic and it’s a rarity to have completely uninterrupted quality time. Loved getting to play dress up together."
Quite the Night
"The exhibit was incredible. A beginning-to-present walkthrough of an iconic institution, complete with photo highlights, stunning clothes, and concept sketches. It was the perfect way to close this Paris chapter."
"All glamor, all the time. Au revoir, Paris!"
