We've been to quite a few parties in our day, but last night's Paris Fashion Week extravaganza — a ball (of course) hosted by Carine Roitfeld and MAC — definitely made it up there.

We looked to them to determine the fate of a song — they were elated for the Stones, less so during Yacht. We wonder: Is "Pumped Up Kicks" so last summer? Karlie? Kanye? Jump ahead for some of the evening's haute highlights — and please excuse us while we take the rest of the day to recover.
