PARIS -- A handsome woman. That's the slice of femininity that designer Marco Zanini was going for with his fall 2013 collection for the house of Rochas, presented Wednesday afternoon during Paris Fashion Week. The look: A masculine-feminine mix with exaggerated shapes and silhouettes. Mannish blazers with contoured lapels and oversized coats in tufted textures belted over super-slim pencil skirts and cropped trousers. Boyfriend cardigans or checked wool bomber jackets over hyper-feminine, pleated circle skirts as wide as a door frame.

Kerry Washington is everywhere. On the covers of magazines; live-tweeting her hit show, "Scandal," with her fans (who call themselves gladiators); hosting "Saturday Night Live"; and soon to be in ads for Neutrogena as the L.A.-based beauty company's new creative consultant. She's appealing all right, the enviable combination of smart and pretty with a can-do mentality to match that of her character on TV, Washington, D.C., crisis manager Olivia Pope. She's also an actress in the modern mold who knows that being a pro at the fashion game is a key to her success.

And what a party it was. Designer Alber Elbaz tripped the light fantastic with a dazzling display of metallic color and shine. The look: Ready for the dance floor.
