The cherry on top of a fantastic season of runways is always Paris Fashion Week. Home to some of the most storied brands in the world, the City of Light consistently delivers on high glamour, major street style, and jaw-dropping shows. And making her exciting return to the front row this season was Morgan Stewart McGraw. The tastemaker and Daily Pop alum arrived with a full schedule that included stops at Balmain, Lanvin, The Row, and Hermès. But perhaps most anticipated on her list was the Valentino show.
Not since Phoebe Philo’s Celine era has a fashion house had such a hold on us the way Valentino has with its F/W 22 collection. Featuring 80-plus looks drenched in vibrant Pink PP—a new Pantone color created by designer Pierpaolo Piccioli—the collection effectively set in motion the Barbiecore trend and has appeared on countless celebrities. With such a dominant last showing, we were excited to see what the fashion house would dream up next for the S/S 23 season.
Luckily, Stewart McGraw was there to capture the highlights as well as her getting-ready process exclusively for Who What Wear.
