OMG. Looks like yet another former Hills star can take "engagement ring" off their Christmas list this year. Reality star-turned-designer Whitney Port (who's been through her fair share of some very public dating disasters) just got engaged to her producer beau of two years, Tim Rosenman, who she met on the set of her Hills spin-off, The City. We're really happy for them and we're gonna let them finish celebrating, but we are DYING to get a glimpse of the ring, which has yet to be revealed. Will it be round and classic like Lauren Conrad's? A whopping square-cut stunner like Kristen Cavallari's? Something eclectic and vintage that reflects her laid-back, downtown boho style? EEE! Just show us already, kthx! (Also, CONGRATS!)
When we think about Parisian style (as we do) a few words spring to mind: chic, effortless, elegant. Long-limbed women loping around the cobblestone walks like well-tailored gazelles. Casual afternoons in some sort of striped knit with a bateau neck. Gobs of red lipstick. A tilted chapeau. You know, our daydream visions of the City of Lights. Paris Haute Couture Week, though, is another beast entirely. Rather than stream-lined and sartorial, haute couture is a rare breed of animal that's custom-fit with the most luxurious fabrics, the most lavish beadwork, and sits patiently while a doting visionary sews it into the vestment by hand. With a club so exclusive, this week marks a specific time when this elite tier of designers is given license to go buck wild on the runway by sheer virtue of their detail-oriented awesomeness. And buck wild they did go. Let's take a look at the week's most WTF looks!
CURTAIN CALL AT ON AURA TOUT VU

Much of what we saw on the On Aura Tout Vu runway we loved: bright pops of candy colors, prints that evolve three times over in one garment, and the MOST interesting developments in hosiery. This look, however, is a little *scrunches nose* IDK. You can "Never mind the model behind the curtain" all you want, but this peek-a-boo personal pan voting booth is hardly something we can ignore.
