Haute Couture Fashion Week is the fashion calendar‘s main event, with designers showing their best of the best intricate designs and custom pieces attracting the most prominent names and enthusiastic fashion aficionados from around the world. Artist and model Ivy Getty, the great-granddaughter of American industrialist J. Paul Getty, finds herself right in the mix, given her affinity for over-the-top high fashion.
Straight off her flight, to kick off the glorious week before the shows even begin, the oil heiress made her way to one of her favorite spots to dine, Caviar Kaspia to enjoy an evening of Bellini’s and caviar — somewhat of a ritual for Getty every time she lands in the City of Lights. It wasn’t long until the 27-year-old had to swap her déjeuner for some of the most exclusive show invites and head out to the glamorous couture circuit.
From sitting in the front row and taking in the collections of Alaïa and Maison Margiela to dining at an intimate dinner with Giambattista Valli celebrating his 10-year anniversary of designing Haute Couture Getty’s couture week, was nothing short but busy — and très à la mode. Ahead, GRAZIA USA tags along with Getty (and her adorable rescue pup Blue) as she navigates outfit changes, stunning runways, and of course, the chic fêtes.
Bellini’s & Caviar
My first stop in Paris is always Caviar Kaspia. The Bellini with the caviar is so delicious and decadent…just what I need after a long flight. Makes for the perfect late lunch.
My very first Alaïa show and first show of the week. What an incredible experience. It was a very intimate show at the store space and such an honor to be there.
Spotted in the FROW
One of the best parts of the Alaia show was being able to experience it with two of my dear friends, Peter Brant and Gaïa Jacquet-Matisse. One of our friends took this picture of us from across the runway.
Quick Pics Before The Show
The Giambattista show is always a highlight of fashion week. I love his designs. I’m wearing this beautiful black-and-white polka dot chiffon dress with subtle ruffles in the front and around the neck paired with this mini white bag and shoes all from Giambattista. This was pre-show at the space — what a view of Place Vendome.
This is my favorite look from the Giambattista show. He celebrated the 10-year anniversary of designing Haute Couture. What an incredible accomplishment. He is so insanely talented; I cannot wait to see what the next 10 years bring him. Congratulations, my dear Giambattista.

Following his magical Haute Couture show, there was an intimate dinner to celebrate Giambattista’s 10-year anniversary of designing Haute Couture. I felt beyond lucky to be there. I sat with him and some of his closest friends.

The next day, we celebrate Giambattista and his new and super chic homeware collaboration with Moda Operandi.

Selfie On The Go
On my way to my first Maison Margiela Haute Couture Show in full Margiela.
Post Margiela, it was the most riveting production of fashion cinema I have ever seen. What an end to an amazing few days in Paris.
