From Miranda Kerr and Olivia Palermo to Pamela Anderson, this season wasn't short of any stars or surprises.

1. Miranda Kerr is turned away from Louis Vuitton show for being late

As one of the highest ranking supermodels in the world, Miranda is fashion royalty. When she's not walking in the most exclusive shows, she's sitting front row. Not at Louis Vuitton this season. Kerr was dressed to impress with nowhere to go as she was turned away at the door for being unfashionably late, which she has now blamed on her driver.

2. Marc Jacobs leaves Louis Vuitton after 16 years

The stalwart of Louis Vuitton for nearly two decades, Jacobs reveals at PFW that his latest showing with Louis Vuitton would be his last in order to focus more on his own eponymous label.

Tipperary model Aine O'Gorman (middloe, who is on the books of Elite Models, also had the privilege of walking for Marc Jacobs' last show for Louis Vuitton. Teenager (far right) also made her PFW debut this week. Who said anything about a bikini on Grafton Street?

4. That Kim Kardashian dress

She's back! The queen Kardashian showed she has her body confidence back in a very revealing dress at one of the many exclusive parties she attended while in the City of Light. Her neckline was slashed practically to the navel, reinventing the term, 'How low can you go?'.

5. Cara Delevingne's blonde wig at Chanel

We're so used to seeing Cara partying the night away with Rihanna and making goofy faces to the camera that it's easy to forget why she's famous - her skyrocketing modelling career. She rocked the runway at Chanel this week, donning a blonde wig and candy coloured makeup as one of Karl Lagerfeld's muses.

6. Olivia Palermo's entire wardrobe

It's no secret that Olivia Palermo is a style icon, but this time she's outdone herself. From Valentino to Oscar de la Renta, it's hard to pick a favourite look of hers. And don't get us started on the hair.

7. Salma Hayek & Lenny Kravitz become unlikely FROW partners at Saint Laurent

Who knew they were friends? Actress Salma Hayek became unlikely BFFs with singer Lenny Kravitz, who makes the world just that bit cooler simply by being him, when they were seated together front row at Saint Laurent. It's always the unlikely friendships that are the most memorable.

8. Pamela Anderson attends Vivienne Westwood

Pam Anderson was a surprise guest at Paris Fashion Week, but she made an astonishing entrance at the Vivienne Westwood show. Yes, really...that Pamela Anderson.

9. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley goes makeup free for Balmain

If you looked like that, wouldn't you go makeup free too? Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showed her natural beauty at the Balmain show, daring to go nude (facially) on the runway. Most celebrities are 'caught' without their face on, Rosie showed it off for all the world to see. Major points.

10. Anna Dello Russo being, well, Anna Dello Russo

She's Vogue Japan's Fashion Editor-at-Large and to say she's a quirky dresser would be an understatement. It's hard to pick her wackiest choice from New York, London and Paris Fashion Weeks, but we love her Minnie Mouse ears here. Because, why not?
