Check out what the celebrities wore to the fashion shows during Haute Couture Week in Paris and how you can easily achieve a similar look!

You saw the amazing highlights from the runways at Paris Haute Couture Week, now you can see what the attendees wore. We have examined the lucky fashionistas’ style and paired up their looks with some of our patterns so you can make your own garments with a Paris flair.

Actress Marion Cotillard arrived at the Christian Dior show wearing a printed little dress with full bodied skirt. To get a look like Marion’s, try sewing the Dress with gathered skirt and cap sleeves . You can add an additional tier with a border for the skirt, and reduce the shoulder width to get a dress that is oh-so Marion.

Here we have Milla Jovovich attending the Chanel show in a signature Chanel jacket and skirt. We suggest sewing up the Chanel Style Jacket and matching Skirt in the same fabric. Add patch pockets to the jacket and embellish the center front, top of pockets and sleeves.

Sofia Coppola attended the Louis Vuitton new boutique opening in a lovely outfit consisting of a white top and wide leg shorts. We love this look and you can achieve a similar style by making these Pleated Shorts in a black wool and this 3/4 length sleeve top in a pretty white sequin fabric.

The lovely Princess Charlene of Monaco arrives at the Christian Dior show in a pretty pink dress. We think this Knee Length Skirt perfectly resembles the princess’s style. You can even attach on a bodice to make this skirt into a dress, and cut in a softly pink colored fabric.

Here we have Kirsten Dunst attending the Louis Vuitton new boutique opening looking pretty in pink in a long dress. Try sewing the Maxi Dress in a printed cotton and thicken the straps. Add a wide waist belt and you have got a look that is truly Kirsten.

Sharon Stone attended the Christian Dior Haute-Couture show all done up and wearing a stunning floor length black gown. Too get this look we suggest making the Column Dress in a luxurious black velvet. Wear with a pair of designer sunglasses like Sharon and you will be ready for your special occasion.

Celebrity stylist Caroline Sieber showed up to the Chanel show in a lovely white dress. This look is a bit more casual but equally as elegant as the rest. Try sewing the Long Sleeve Tiered Dress in a heavier fabric like tweed and also embellish the neckline and yoke. Pair with a fedora hat like Caroline for a perfect day time look.

Former Editor-In-Chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld, attended the Giorgio Armani Prive show rocking a black jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are a big trend now, and you can make your own using the Jumpsuit pattern. Cut in a black fabric and add an exposed metal zipper and waist belt for a look like Carine’s.

Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer attended the Giambattista Valli show looking lovely in printed dresses. For a look like Anna’s, try making the Dart Dress and pair with a statement necklace and belt. To achieve Bee’s style we suggest sewing the Dress With Knot Front in a floral print and add a matching belt, you can also shorten the hemline for a more youthful look like Bee’s.

Model and fashionista, Poppy Delevigne, showed up to the Chanel show in a trendy denim skirt and top. You can get Poppy’s look by sewing this Denim Skirt and this Collared Blouse. Attach silver buttons to the skirt and sew on a trim to the hemline, and also make the blouse in a nice crisp cotton.

Here we have supermodel Natalia Vodianova attending the Christian Dior show wearing a little black dress. Her dress has lovely front pleats and you can get this too by sewing the Starburst Skirt . Cut in a nice black fabric and attach a bodice to make your own signature little black dress.

Which look would you like to recreate?

    Marion Cotillard always looks stunning, although i think “Casey’s Variation” from the Burdastyle book is a closer match. And i love everything Sofia Coppola wears :D
