Rihanna leads the style pack as Paris Fashion Week draws to a close

3 MARCH 2008
Rihanna's recent trip to France has been a busy one. As well as performing a one-off set at the exclusive Swarovski party, the singing sensation was a fixture at the week's fashion shows - and certainly wasn't missing out on any of the weekend runway action. On Saturday she was on hand to check out John Galliano's vision for this autumn/winter.

Joining the Umbrella star in the front row was Mary-Kate Olsen. The US TV starlet and teen style icon was busy picking up tips for the fashion-themed coffee table book Influence she's working on with twin sister Ashley. Busy Charlie's Angels actress Lucy Liu stopped by, too, before heading over to watch Lanvin's latest ready-to-wear collection with elegant mum-to-be Jessica Alba.

The most star-studded crowd assembled the following day, though, as New York designer Marc Jacobs brought Paris Fashion Week to a close. Checking out Marc's new collection for Louis Vuitton were Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty, Bond girl Gemma Arterton and Resident Evil actress Milla Jovovich. Joining the screen beauties front row were burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, rapper Kanye West - currently working on his own fashion line - and Secretary star Maggie Gyllenhaal.
