PARIS -- Eva Mendes, Jennifer Garner, Carey Mulligan and many more are fans of wearing his structured, body conscious dresses on the red carpet. Because when it comes to fierce femininity, Roland Mouret has got it down. The designer showed his stellar spring-summer collection on Friday at Paris Fashion Week. The look: Sexy, assertive. Sharp cuts and folds. Shards of color. Close-to-the-body draping. Shift dresses, pencil skirts and tops with a fragmented architecture. Judo-inspired vests and blazers.

PARIS -- Seeing Junya Watanabe's spring-summer 2013 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Saturday, I was reminded of watching the London Summer Olympics, and how obsessed I became with the athletes' high-impact performance wear and neon running shoes. Watanabe must have been watching, too. He teamed up with Puma, tapping the athletic wear giant for fabrics for this collection. PHOTOS: Paris Fashion Week trends The look: Built for speed from the street to the gym. Nylon and polyester mesh treated as if they were fine silk and satin, with great attention to tailoring and design details.

AFTER just a few years, the fast fashion phenomenon has come down to a pretty predictable formula: Mass-market retailer hires cool designer, hypes the collaboration like mad but produces just a few pieces, and waits for the stampede. Proenza Schouler at Target. Viktor & Rolf at H&M. Roland Mouret at the Gap. All of those limited collections sold out in days, if not hours. Now comes Jovovich-Hawk for MNG, making a comparatively stealth debut today in a store you probably haven't even heard of.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been on a sartorial roll this week in London - most recently at a gala celebrating the forthcoming Olympic Games. On the arm of husband Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton dazzled in a teal Jenny Packham creation with a matching clutch and sweeping updo. The Friday gala, "Our Greatest Team Rises," celebrated the countrymen and women who will compete before their own come summer. "You, our Olympians and Paralympians, will inspire people up and down this country, and far beyond its borders," William told the crowd in opening remarks.  Earlier in the week, another of Kate's choices definitely inspired fashion bloggers and royal watchers, who were wowed by the cream-colored Roland Mouret dress with a high slit she wore at a Tuesday dinner for the Thirty Club of London.  Sure, Kate's sophisticated glamour is an attention stealer, but William knows how to compete: At the Olympics event, he took a jab at younger brother Prince Harry.
