Miu Miu's Fall 2012 Show in Paris Gets an Amazing Young Hollywood Showing

Miuccia Prada's younger brand showed in Paris, with the likes of Mia Wasikowska, Lea Seydoux and Katy Perry in the front row.

Miuccia Prada showed one of her very best Miu Miu collections for fall winter 2012 in Paris on Wednesday, filled with strong suits in bright color combos -- very Carnaby Street - and mini dresses festooned with giant matte rock crystals. Even the eyemakeup had a strong sixties/seventies element. Just remember you heard it here first: the dress over pants look is baaccckkkkkk . . . 

STORY: Model Andrej Pejik Plays Both Sides at Paris Fashion Week

It's not everyday a brand gets a strong row that's got Mia Wasikowska -- an avowed fan of the brand, who wears it often -- Katy Perry, Midnight in Paris star Lea Seydoux, Kate Mara, Brit Marling, British singer Corinne Bailey Rae, and a number of young French stars. It's the best celeb turn out in Paris so far, so the Wednesday night opening of the Marc Jacobs-Louis Vuitton museum show at Les Art Decoratif in Paris will certainly be a hot ticket tonight.

Wasikowska wore a bicolor dress with a Miu Miu orchid pink top and a black flared skirt, with nude patent pumps; Seydoux wore a Prada (sister brand) black lace dress, a clutch and two town leather wedges with flames; Perry wore a blue coat and a flame print chiffon dress by Prada -- plus the bag of the season, the Saffiano lux Pyramide with studs - and Mara wore a red nappa leather trench and red silk shorts by Miu Miu. Quite a nice showing for all -- but particularly, for the brand.

What do you think?
