For a cheat sheet on how to nail fashion week, look no further.

Dubai-based Karen Wazen B and Lebanon’s Lana El Sahely have long been favourites of ours in terms of style inspiration. They know their way around a wardrobe, to say the very least.

So it makes sense that when they both hit up Paris Fashion Week, beautiful things happened. From the front row to the after party to the morning croissant, we’re getting serious clothes envy.

We mean that in the best possible way, of course. Please join us in enjoying their best looks from fashion month’s final act, including this party for jewellery designer Messika, which was also attended by Gigi Hadid and Barbara Palvin.

Not a bad effort.

Karen Wazen B

 This is such a great outfit and photo. “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t see you there. I was just relaxing in my Madiyah al Sharqi coat and my Miu Miu heels.” As one does.

 Who knew tartan over-the-knee boots were a necessity? It was news to us too, but what a look.

 Is it really Paris if no one wears a beret?

 Suddenly thinking that if we don’t get our hands on this Reemami dress, we’ll never know lasting happiness. Gorgeous.

 If this was us, we’d be printing this photo out and putting it on the fridge. Too cool. Not to mention, that beret has re-wear value.

Lana El Sahely

 If this isn’t the quintessential Paris photo, what is? Every element is working here, right down to the boots.

 Wait, this might be a little more Parisienne. Again with the tall boots. We’re seriously considering making a purchase.

 El Sahely was also on hand for that Messika party, and she looked incredible. Evening houndstooth, anyone?

 For when you want to let your accessories do the talking.

 Masterful use of the fake walking shot here. The coat-as-dress look probably isn’t super practical for our climes, but doesn’t it look perfect?
