Paris Fashion Week: At Miu Miu, Oscar winners and all-weather sweeties

Los Angeles Times Fashion Critic

PARIS -- Jared Leto and his fab ombre locks and Lupita Nyong'o and her flawless face. Not one but two Oscar winners turned up in Paris on Wednesday for the Miu Miu show on the last day of Paris Fashion Week.

(And for those who are counting, there was a bevy of other notables there too, including Rihanna, Elle Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen.)

On the runway, Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu collection had as much eye candy as the front row. The fun, colorful mix of sweet-and-sporty all-weather gear proved that even when it's nasty out, you can dress up.

Quilted nylon puffer vests, parkas and miniskirts resembling vintage, '70s ski wear, were worn with Alpine sweaters, or shirts unbuttoned to reveal cotton sports bras. Metallic brocades covered jumper dresses and sporty anoraks. And slickers and short rain boots came in transparent candy-colored plastic.

Polar Vortex? No problem. Prada's stilettos have angled metal spike heels for traversing icy sidewalks.

It was a lot of fun. My only question? What are the Hollywood lovelies going to wear in sunny L.A.? Oh well, there's always the Sundance Film Festival.
