Kate Moss holds court at Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens bares all

If fashion had a monarchy, she would be its queen.
Kate Moss certainly acted like one from her regally-placed seat in the center of Louis Vuitton's front row in Paris.
The 41-year-old model held court in a large fur coat, giggling and chatting loudly to almost everyone in her vicinity, even ostensibly waving to people on other sides of the venue.
Moss shushed herself at one point, realizing she was simply being too loud.
F1 driver Lewis Hamilton, singer Bryan Ferry and former R.E.M front man Michael Stipe shared the front row with the famed superwaif, but not her attention-grabbing effervescence.
Here are the tidbits and highlights from Thursday's fall-winter 2015 menswear collections, including show reports for Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens, Dries Van Noten and Issey Miyake.
LOUIS VUITTON'S DRAINPIPE CHIC
It was a luxuriant yet highly wearable collection from Louis Vuitton's menswear designer Kim Jones, who brought back the drainpipe. Thin, Fifties-style pants with large, often contrasting, turn-ups came alongside cut-out shoes with huge visible white soles. It would not have looked out of place on Marlon Brando in the iconic 1954 movie "On the Waterfront."
As ever, looks were rendered in colorful, but masculine, hues: indigo, cognac, dark brown, beige, black, navy and a flash of gold. Louis Vuitton's mission statement is one of travel. And here Jones' travelled to Japan with some incredible statement looks: like one assorted white denim blouson and pants featuring beautifully bold, round Japanese-style prints.
