Last time he was in Europe, Prince was constantly escorted by sultry identical sisters who answered only to the name 'Twinz'.
Lately, the 51-year-old superstar has been enjoying the company of just one special female, his protégé Bria Valente.
Arrived with the striking brunette on his arm and looking typically flamboyant in a snazzy jacket, accessorised with an elegant cane, the musician was the talk of the Paris Fashion Week show.
The pair were the focus of attention as they sat front row at the Chanel presentation, holding hands.
Initially introduced when she was 18, the couple only became close when he masterminded the release of her album 2009 Elixir.
Since then twice-married Prince and the singer - whose age is not known - have seen together several times, including at a basketball game last Christmas.
