Rodarte’s Obama dress at Sonia Rykiel’s 40th Anniversary show
Sonia Rykiel celebrated 40 years in fashion at Paris Fashion Week. The first half of the show was filled with Rykiel’s own designs, which were marked by the color and whimsy that’s been missing from most runways this season.

And the good vibes didn’t stop there. The show eneed 30 other uproarious looks by designers (like the Rodarte design at the top), paying homage to Rykiel’s 40 years in the fashion biz:
Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci
Maison Martin Margiela
Jean Paul Gaultier
