A refreshing new take on catwalk shows was adopted at this season's Paris Fashion Week.
Gone were the outrageous theatrics and highly-exaggerated versions of clothing and instead designers showcased attire that women can actually wear.
Stella McCartney flew the flag for this change in direction as she presented simple but stunning garments.
Black coats, sweater dresses and sneakers teamed with effortless hair and make-up made the collection much more accessible to the average woman.
The change coincides with the end of John Galliano's career with Christian Dior, which was packed full of theatrically fabulous catwalk presentations.
