Top Models Take Over Paris

As The Thread cruises around Paris, we can’t help but notice the influx of statuesque beauties who have invaded the city. Turn onto almost any street, and you’ll find a face you’ve just seen in the pages of Vogue looking right at you! Check out all the lovely ladies we spotted on days 1 and 2 of Paris Fashion Week.

Veteran model Anja Rubik, who graces the September cover of Vogue Germany and can also be seen in the Hugo Boss BOSS Womenswear fall ’13 campaign, was sighted in the 16th arrondissement.

Lithuanian blonde bombshell Neringa Stropute uses her iPad to navigate her way through Paris; we found her on le boulevard Beaumarchais, en route to castings. Which show does she hope to walk in? “Fingers crossed for CÉLINE,” she says.

Brazilian beauty Lary Arcanjo waves hello at the Palais de Tokyo.

Canadian model Senait Gidey, who has walked for the likes of KENZO, Versace and Burberry, stops for a quick bite at Bert’s in front of the Pont de l’Alma on her way to castings. Yummy!

Dutch model Bette Franke, the face of See by Chloé fragrance, struts down avenue du Président-Wilson (and makes a simple white top look effortlessly chic).

On the line 1 platform of the Concorde Métro station, Parisian model Anissa Debza pauses for a moment to talk about her hopes for a repeated booking at Jean Paul Gaultier this season.

Grace Mahary proves that a classic pair of black sunglasses never goes out of style.

China’s “it” girl, Shuyang Zhang, never misses a beat as she effortlessly carries on a telephone conversation in Mandarin while conversing with us in English off of the historic rue de Turenne.

Please don’t go! Pavlina Eneva waves goodbye as she catches the line 8 from the Strasbourg—Saint-Denis Métro station in the 3rd arrondissement.

Alina Kosh, Karina Barshchik and Mélie Tiacoh look runway-ready on their way back from casting calls in the Marais.

Luca Adamik flirts with our camera as she glides off toward the Place des Vosges.
