Supermodels Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss Kick Off Couture Week In Paris

The who’s who of the fashion world has landed in Paris for the the fall 2015 couture shows, and who better to welcome them than a bevy of supermodels?

Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls and a flock of gorgeous supers took to the Atelier Versace runway on Sunday evening as modern-day fairy nymphs replete with diaphanous gowns and flower crowns for the first major show of the week. The runway itself was a fantasy of sorts, as clear Lucite revealed 25,000 colored orchids beneath it. Overall the look was part-Coachella, part ’60s go-go girl, with floaty dresses combined with sky-high platform boots. The theme was less severe than in recent seasons, but still had that quintessential Versace sex appeal.

“There are two faces,” Donatella Versace told Style.com about the more delicate look. “We wanted to show the softer side of Versace.”

Here are some of our favorite looks:
