If you weren't one of the few people lucky enough to attend Paris Fashion Week this season, you might feel, well, a tad shortchanged. Sure, you can peep endless runway photos and scour Instagram for super-cool backstage snaps, but nothing compares to actually being at a fashion show, amirite? Well, friends, we've got some good news—The Cut got their hands on the ENTIRE. SOUNDTRACK. from the highly-anticipated Saint Laurent spring/summer 2013 show, and it features music by THE Daft Punk. *cries tears of joy* Like, could this be more awesome, y'all? Our fave electronic French duo created a 15-minute (yes, that says FIFTEEN. MINUTE.) soundtrack for the models to strut their stuff to with vocals by Junior Kimbrough, an iconic blues musician who passed away in 1998.

Jean Paul Gaultier Paris Fashion Week

More than just a designer, Jean Paul Gaultier is a consummate showman. It's safe to say that you can always count on his Paris Fashion Week shows to dazzle and straight-up entertain. This season was no exception, with JPG not only outfitting his models in gorgeous new Spring 2013 togs (fringed skirts, floral satin pants, latticed wireframe sleeves!!!) but ALSO styling them after iconic musicians. *Cue mental glitter bomb, exploding rainbows and Lisa Frank dolphins.* What does that mean exactly? Well, for starters, you get our House of Style hosts Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss (both of whom also walked the Stella McCartney show this morning!) killing dead a sultry Sade and a braided Boy George respectively. And given JPG's long-storied love of Madonna, there was no shortage of rosary-clad Madge tributes including this sheer black number showcased by the lovely Jessica Stam.

Azealia Banks

Remember how we said Azealia Banks had a really busy day yesterday? Allow me to rephrase and just lump it all together into one week. (Granted, we could go into how this has been a busy YEAR for Banks, one of our predicted "It" girls of 2012, but I digress...) I guess it makes sense since she's one of the fashion community's favorite music acts and it's Paris Fashion Week, a week-long event for which girl is undoubtedly a hot commodity. Azealia and her "Earth Weave" hit the stage last night for the official launch party of the Anna Dello Russo at H&M accessories collection.

Often when we think of Paris Haute Couture (you know, as we do), we imagine the world's best designers going buck wild, cobbling together teetering two-story-high platform heels, dreaming up dresses that look more like architectural masterpieces than cocktail party wear, and concocting hairstyles that seem to defy all laws of physics and gravity. The designs that traipse down the runways during this biannual City of Lights affair are often too fairy-tale fantastic for us to ever envision pulling off IRL. However, that doesn't mean there aren't real trends buried in the bells and whistles and Hot Wheels racetrack harnesses of Paris Haute Couture Week, though. Walk with us as we unpack some of the week's most relevant trends!

Nearly every designer at Haute Couture Week had a version of the jumpsuit, and most were printed, embellished, or constructed from metallic jacquard. Many of the long-pants onesies were also long-sleeved, like these looks from Zuhair Murad, Jantaminiau, and Valentino. But, a few, like this number by Jean Paul Gaultier, modelled by Karli Kloss, were strapless with a jacket worn over top.

Today marks the last day of Paris Fashion Week, and with the end of the sartorial extravaganza in The City of Lights, so comes the end of Fashion Month all together. Yep, there's an entire summer standing between us and the next major Fashion Week, so we're taking in every last bit of this that we can sop up. One of the most highly anticipated shows punctuating this week was Miuccia Prada's Fall 2012 Miu Miu presentation, and naturally, the starlets showed up in droves for the newest collection's debut, namely Miu Miu darling Kate Mara, PFW All-Star Katy Perry, and campaign face Mia Wasikowska.

Unless you've been hiding out in a dark, internet-less cave for the past 24 hours, you've probably heard all the hubbub surrounding Kanye West's much-anticipated return to Paris Fashion Week. We live-blogged the entire show as it went down (including the go-kart racing track around the runway!), and then we hit you up with every look from Kanye's fall collection. But perhaps the most talked about part of the evening were the celebs! Yeezy's fellow musician friends came out in droves to support the rapper turned fashion maven. Everyone from Kim Kardashian (who wore his $6,000 shoes from last season!) to Leigh Lezark made an appearance at 'Ye's show, but we have to say this front-row shot (above) mayyyy be one of the best from this season...or perhaps of all time.

Kanye West Fall 2012 Paris Fashion Week

Not to be all, "We told you so!" but we totally called it earlier today when we thought Azealia Banks would be performing at Kanye West's second-ever Paris Fashion Week show. Little did we know, we wouldn't be graced with just Ms. Banks presence, but also Waka Flocka Flame, A-Trak, Big Sean, Common, AND Mos Def. Um, did Yeezy go big or what? The rappers took over Kanye's runway space in Paris (which included a racing track around the seats) for an all-out after party that we wish soooo hard we were invited to. *single tear* Luckily, thanks to this thing called THE INTERNET, we were able to scrap together what this fashion-filled event entailed.

Kanye West Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012

Kanye West’s show was good. I realize this sounds like faint praise or an attempt at side-eyed diplomacy but it’s not. The show was good and it was safe. Anna Wintour told WSJ moments before that she anticipated a “short” show and it was also that. The show was good, safe, and short. There were 20 looks.

It’s not at all what you would expect from Kanye West. Thing is, I’m so used to BANANAS Kanye. Euphoric Kanye. Tweeting-about-DONDA-and-damn-near-breaking-the-Internet Kanye. Kanye who’s going to revolutionize school systems and videos and award shows and music. I just wish he could apply some of that energy and unabashed gassed-ness to fashion. I never thought I’d say this about Kanye West but I just wish he had been more confident. Displayed more of an ego.

4:26pm — Super short and sweet, three colors, 20 looks that ends in a go kart race around the crowd. Check back in for the detailed wrap-up and more.

4:25pm — I do love the classic, American sportswear cues like this bone-colored, oversized (clearly V luxe) crewneck sweatshirt

4:23pm — These ribbed (strapped?) boots are absolutely the business.

4:22pm — The burnout velvet pieces are gorgeous and happily, Kanye has overcome the loosey-goosey fit problem from last season.

4:21pm — Really serious, austere lines, girlie notes in the skirts, and velvet.

4:19pm — Boatloads of leather.

4:17pm — FUR BAGS again.

4:08pm — We can keep talking since we're not there BUT Anna Wintour just told the WSJ that she anticipates a "short show." WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

4:07pm — Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh everyone's asked to sit down and be quiet. Must be starting soon. Ish. Esque.

4:06pm — Kim K is wearing Kanye's SIX THOUSAND DOLLAR shuz.

Ladies and gentlemen, we welcome you to KANYE WEST Runway Show Day. As you might imagine, this is a ginormous event for us all here at MTV Style. We've been counting this fash magic down ever since the last Paris Fashion Week when Yeezy made his ready-to-wear debut. Everyone in the DONDA camp has been tight-lipped about today's fall 2012 show (which is taking place at 9:30 p.m. Paris time, 3:30 p.m. ET), but news has finally (TRIUMPHANTLY) been revealed and we are in serious hyperventilation mode. You guys, Azealia Banks just tweeted a shot of the runway and it's ENORMOUS. Also? She said, "Sound Check at Kanye West Runway Show!!!!" This can only mean one thing—and it's reinforced by the multiple use of exclamation points and all caps—AZEALIA BANKS might possibly be *gasp* PERFORMING!!!! Not that we weren't expecting this already, but the Kanye West show is starting to feel like a spectacular to end all spectaculars.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
