From catwalk to red carpet: The designer dresses chosen by leading ladies of today

The front rows at Fashion Week are often filled with celebrities looking to spot their designer destinies on the runways.

And many leave with a few ideas picked out for their next glitzy event.

From Jean Paul Gaultier to Rihanna, and Dior to Sarah Jessica Parker, discover how stars are making designers' catwalk creations their own.

The intricate detail of this Jean Paul Gaultier masterpiece had onlookers filled with admiration at his Paris Haute Couture show in 2008.

And although it may have been showcased as a bridal gown, Umbrella singer Rihanna decided it would work just perfectly for a red carpet event in Cannes last month
