The Best-Dressed Celebs At PFW Weren’t Front-Row — They Were At Home
Typically, the front rows at Paris Fashion Week would provide as much fashion inspiration as the runways. Any other year, Christian Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and more, would be packed with the likes of Rachel Brosnahan, Margot Robbie, Janelle Monae, Lupita Nyong’o, and Emma Chamberlain in the brand's most standout designs. In 2020, though, due to travel restrictions and social distance guidelines as the result of the pandemic, many of the celebrities weren’t able to make it to the international fashion capital. Instead, they watched from home — which unexpectedly provided just as many memorable looks.
This season, brands like Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton set up virtual front rows to allow their most loyal (and influential) fans to not only watch them present their spring ‘21 collections from home but also to be seen by all (including in-person attendees and virtual viewers). Screens were set up around the brand’s respective venues, showing the stars at home. Naturally, for the occasion, celebrities didn’t show up in a lockdown uniform of sweatsuits and heels. Instead, they appeared dressed head-to-toe in fashions from their favorite labels. Newly engaged Nicola Peltz and Emma Chamberlain got dolled up as they normally would for Louis Vuitton, as did Storm Reid, Gabrielle Union, and Beanie Feldstein for Miu Miu. All in all, we still got to see the front row regulars dressed to the nines at Paris Fashion Week — they were maybe just a bit more... pixelated than we’re used to.
Ahead, check out the best-dressed celebrities from Paris Fashion Week: at-home edition.
Valley Girl remake actress Camila Morrone went classic black-and-white to watch the spring '21 Chanel show from home in L.A.
Jessy Barden, Chanel
The End of the F***ing World star Jessy Barden is usually a regular front-row attendee for shows like Chanel and Gucci. This year, though, she chose to, instead, dress up in garb from the former label for a shoot in her backyard. (Nice.)
Gabrielle Union, Miu Miu
In between designing a fashion line for New York & Company, being a mom, and posing for the cover of Marie Claire, Gabrielle Union still found time to get all dressed up for the Miu Miu show this week.
Beanie Feldstein, Miu Miu
Miu Miu and Beanie Feldstein pretty much go hand-in-hand. The Booksmart actress wore Miuccia Prada's youthful label to the 2020 Oscars and also regularly attends the brand's fashion week shows. Now, despite being home in her childhood bedroom, she's continuing the streak, by "dressing up as Blair Waldorf," according to her Instagram, in all Miu Miu.
Storm Reid, Miu Miu
Euphoria actress Storm Reid may have just upped her on-screen big sis, Zendaya, in the fashion department with this Miu Miu ensemble for this week's show.
Bel Powley, Miu Miu
Bows, collars, socks, and Oxfords — what more could we ask for from Bel Powley, who watched the Miu Miu show from her kitchen table, according to Instagram.
Emma Chamberlain, Louis Vuitton
Emma Chamberlain, the queen of content, took to her front yard to show off her cream-colored Louis Vuitton puffer, matching padded jeans, and lug-soled loafers.
Nicola Peltz, Louis Vuitton
Even lounging on the floor at home, Nicola Peltz looks perfect. The occasion? Watching Louis Vuitton's spring '21 collection online. Also, can we take a second to appreciate these pants? Like, damn.
