Paris Fashion Week: Paco Rabanne Spring 2012, Opened by Jourdan Dunn

Paco Rabanne is back! Manish Arora is catapulting the brand to the forefront of fashion and after five years away, the fashion house truly had an amazing show for Spring 2012.

Mr. Arora is the king of eccentric space-age fashion and Spring was no exception with designs that blended armor, Judy Jetson at her sexiest and an amazing array of out of this world dresses at the end that took avant-garde design to a new level. Even from the opening dresses on Jourdan Dunn and Nyasha Matonhodze, you knew the Paco Rabanne woman was fashion forward with a preference for leg-baring silhouettes and metallics.

These pieces were showstopping: completely fit for red carpet daredevils, music videos and onstage performances. The most wearable looks were cropped metallic skinny trousers and a black ladylike suit on Maud Welzen. It will be interesting to see how and if these looks are altered for retail.

Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and Rihanna must wear these pieces in the coming months. It is just a matter of who, how and which looks.
