Vogue World in Paris

A few weeks ago on the evening of June 23rd, the Place Vendôme in Paris was taken over by Vogue magazine for a fashion extravaganza. The Place Vendôme is a famous square in the first arrondissement of Paris that is known for its luxury storefronts and high-end hotels like the Ritz. 800 guests attended this spectacular fashion show that honored the International Olympic Day with sports-themed designs. 

Vogue World was launched in 2022 with a show in downtown New York and in 2023, the show traveled to London donning a theatrical theme in a West End Theater. This year’s Vogue World celebration took place in Paris, chosen for its standing as a high fashion destination and its role this year hosting the Summer Olympic Games. The Place Vendôme runway show featured 180 different fashion looks from top designers including Thom Browne and Jacquemus. The outfits were divided into different sections based on decades of history and a specific sport associated with that decade. Famous top models graced the runway including Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid who arrived on horseback decked out in Hermès outfits. Vogue World featured famous French individuals including pop singer Aya Nakamura who opened the show singing her song “Fly” and basketball superstar Victor Wembanyama who ended the show in a spectacular white Louis Vuitton suit. Another surprisingly fun feature was French actress Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, known by many for her role in “Emily in Paris”, who strutted down the runway in Saint Laurent holding a vintage phone up to her ear. 

This colorful celebration of fashion and sports is a great way to get excited for the upcoming Olympic Games! Let us know what your favorite look was.
