Haider Ackermann has a cult following, and that now includes one Janet Jackson. Chic heard a few rumors that she was in Paris, but we expected her to show at Lanvin next to Glenda, per usual.

Don't worry, cherie---the waiters were still serving orange juice and champagne. The late-starting Margiela show and persistent rain---not to mention talk of a manifestation in town---meant that traffic was worse than the LIE during Labor Day Weekend. The ever-thoughtful Alber respected your struggles. As of now---6:45---the lights are just dimming and Frida Gustavsson is opening the show in a grey silk skirt and nude tank.
