PARIS – Following a triumphant Oscar evening suiting up Jared LetoEllen DeGeneres, Brooklyn Decker and several party-bound celebrities in his signature skinny tuxedos, Los Angeles-based Saint Laurent designer Hedi Slimane showed a women's collection that was more rock 'n' roll than red carpet.

With a ’60s silhouette, the sparkly shifts and go-go boots will find fans in young Hollywood, but it was models and musicians in the front row.

Alex Turner and Miles Kane of Brit band The Last Shadow Puppets, sporting the slicked-back Saint Laurent hair of last season, brought their own bottle of Ruinart champagne to the front row, where they were seated with The Strokes' Fabrizio Morretti and model-musician Karen Elson.

Elson compared the vibe to the excitement of seeing a favorite band. "I always get the same feeling when a show's about to start," she said, though she admitted that when she's onstage the jitters are different. "Walking out on the runway I'm nervous, but it's exhilarating more than nerve-racking. Music is a lot more involved."

Kate Moss caused a bit of mayhem when she arrived. Photographers and guests alike angled for a photo as she posed with Jade Jagger. After the chaos died down, she sat with both husband Jamie Hince and ex Jefferson Hack. Valerie Trierweiler, who recently split from French president Francois Hollande after affair allegations, and the first lady of French film Catherine Deneuve, were seated across from them, next to late designer Yves Saint Laurent's longtime partner, Pierre Berge.

Much of the music crowd was decamping for club Regine, despite the next day's early Chanel show.

DJ Leigh Lezark shared her secret for having both late nights and early mornings after four weeks of following the fashion calendar around the globe. "I've gotten used to not drinking. It's not the easiest plan, but it's the best," she said, after confirming plans with Elson.

Turner and Kane were ushered backstage with glasses in hand but left their open bottle on the bench, only to have it swept up quickly by security.
