We love this private moment between Alber Elbaz and Lanvin owner Shaw-Lan Wang backstage at the brand’s men’s show. Alber is sporting the shades and a fan that pays to tribute to both the lovable designer and the Taiwanese super entrepreneur.

AFI's frontman Davey Havok is now causing havoc in the fashion world with Zu Boutique, a combination of custom ultra-limited editions tees and collaborations with footwear brand Macbeth (killer kicks) and PNUT Jewelry. "It's a tiny little brand filled with big love," said Havok. But these hard-to-get must-haves are key for any indie chicster—or John Hughes lover. Many pieces nod to '80s flicks. Our faves? The Arrhythmia's ode to the animated hamburger in Better Off Dead and the Bender, inspired by John Bender in The Breakfast Club. THE DETAILS: $79 each (30 piece limited-edition), $63 (100 piece limited-edition); www.zuboutique.com

Karl Lagerfeld might have had the week off from the menswear shows in Paris (Chanel's menswear is shown alongside womenswear in March and October), but that doesn't mean he wasn't making the rounds! With Baptiste Giabiconi by his side---comme toujours---the Kaiser took in the Dior Homme show from the front row. How did designer Kris Van Assche snag such an A-lister for his crowd, you wonder? Karl shoots the campaigns!

Damien Hirst injected a bit of Pepto pink into the auction at Sir Elton John’s AIDS Foundation (EJAF) White Tie and Tiara Ball at his Windsor residence. Hirst glammed up an Audi for the charity with a candy pink coat---how Chic of him!---and the car was auctioned off for a cool $511,870. Unfortunately, loves, a DIY version is impossible: The A1 isn’t available until November, so even if you want to give your Audi your own Hirst-esque makeover, you’ll have to wait. Alas!
