In for Schiaparelli

Farida Khelfa filled in as the brand ambassador for famous Parisian mark Schiaparelli for five superb years previously venturing down from her situation in 2017. However, the fashion week proved to us that the 58-year-old is as yet working intimately with the luxurious fashion house, as she was one of the runway stars at the mark's Spring 2019 Couture show in Paris on Monday.

The star of the runway was wearing a dark A-line coat matched with cowboy leather boots and a dark, boxed clutch. “Isn’t it great that designers have realized you can’t use a 15-year-old to sell to older women?” commented the French-Algerian model when her arrangement as a representative for Schiaparelli was first uncovered in 2012. Surely, Khelfa wasn't the main 40-ish woman to walk the runway on Monday. She was joined by style legend Erin O'Connor, who shut the catwalk introduction in a layered, tulle, sugary appearance.

Despite the fact that this was Khelfa's first turn on the runway in almost 10 years as she last shut the Hermès Spring 2011 show in 2010, the fashion iconc has been exclusive on the first line at this present season's Paris Fashion Week, going to the Dior Homme Fall 2019 show this week. Recently, she visited 18 Rue de la Verrerie, where a plaque regarding the late Tunisian couturier Azzedine Alaïa was divulged, with long-term companions Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.
