Keeping it warm in paris
Spending a couple of days in Paris for Haute Couture fashion week is a real treat. Since we were most of the time in Los Angeles, it feels nice to be in Europe, see our friends, hang out at some of our favorite restaurants, coffee places and of course, admire all the incredible new collections in the middle of all this. It is my first time doing the couture shows and honestly, I have no idea why I haven’t decided to do it before : it is pure magic.
If ready to wear is already quite an experience, couture is a celebration of craftsmanship with hand made gowns, embroideries, sequins, lace and out of this world shapes. It is a true work of art pushing the limits of fashion and surprising the whole crowd. To get ready to attend the shows, I team up with a a few brands who give me the opportunity to wear some of their exquisite creations and I can tell you, it really does feel like princess moments.
The whole KayTeam is staying at the beautiful Park Hyatt hotel in Paris on place Vendôme. We have the most gorgeous suite ever! Fiona and I do after-fashion-show slumber parties with wine, cheese, snuggled in our bathrobes in front of the the fireplace (yes there is a fireplace) while listening to rap music (I know, interesting contrast). Days are good. Travelling with my best friend is the best thing ever. We have so many moments of pure delirious craziness and honestly it makes my whole day.
Fashion weeks can get quite serious sometime, everyone is busy, concentrated, running everywhere, it’s so nice to have our little moments of breakdown from this all and laugh about anything and everything : we’re only 21! Gotta roll with the flow. I am happy to share with you all this super cozy Parisian look, just an idea of how I try to stay warm this winter : all wrapped up in my Isabel Marrant boyfriend coat. Wanted to add a pop of orange with this gorgeous Stella McCartney sweater too! What do you guys think? Sending you tons of love.
OUTFIT OF THE DAY
COAT : Isabel Marrant
SHOES : Hugo Boss

Love this cozy and pretty look!
Love that look! I can imagine you have loads of fun with Fiona. Enjoy the week. I have a feeling that something is different this season. You seem happier:)
Hi Kristina! It's so fun keeping up with your time in Paris via social media. The glimpses we get of the fashion from the runway's is so beautiful! It looks like a dream, you must be having a blast! I really like this outfit post, it's more of an accessable style that all of us can pull off and take inspiration from. It would be great to see more posts like this on Kayture again :-) I just love your style. It's what got me hooked from the beginning. Enjoy your week!
These photos are AWESOME!
Loving that beanie.
omg these photos are stunning!
you look beyond gorgeous :-)
Sublim comme toujours ;)
Do you "invest" in your wardrobe with your Chanel, YSL, Louis Vuitton, etc. pieces? Or are they gifts/sponsor items from the company? Thank you!!!
perfect cold weather look! love your handbag
I love the sweater and the beanie but my favourite piece is the Chanel :)
This area is my favorite spot in Paris!!!
It's About L.A

I'm speechless. The outfit is wonderful, but your beauty is absolutely out of this world! Every shoot is prettier than the previous one! You guys are living everyone's dream and I can't believe you're just a few years older than me. Enjoy the Haute Couture fashion week also for me! #KayTeamRules

Nice casual outfit,...beautiful :-)http://jenniferkaya.com
You can really work any kind of look! This might not be your typical outfit, but it looks great on you :) The coat and the beanie look awesome together.http://www.rosemarynotes.com
Hey Kristina, I'm glad you are having a blast in Paris, your look so gorgeous in the ensemble..your style is top of the line. :-)
Love how this look is a huge contrast from your usual high-end and ultra feminine looks.
Looks also more wearable in this time of year during the winter in Toronto! Thanks for sharing. xxx
Your hair looks incredible!!! Love your outfit too!
Love this cozy look!
So pretty! I don't think I'm a beanie hat sort of person but you're persuading me to try more haha.http://www.deasynoel.com
Oh the Haute Couture is another world, it's pure magic like you said. This outfit is casual with a rock touch, I love this kind of combinations. The coat is just perfect and the stripes sweater looks wonderful on you. These boots are insane, I think I'm in love. The Chanel bag is a piece of art, super chic
Hello Kristina ! What an amazing post again !
I write comments time to time, but not as much as I would like, as I'm at university I dont always have spare time to sit and write properly !
I really admire your work, it's just unbelievable ! You inspire me daily, a lot thanks to Instagram, where it is easy to follow what you are up to, even if I'm sitting listening to a teacher (well, not listening properly... oops!)
I cannot believe that we are the same age and that you are already doing such amazing things. It's so crazy ! I'm super happy for you , because you do deserve this.
A lot of bloggers that are very popular, I'm now bored of : like Betty for example. But i'm not bored of you, and I dont think I'll ever be.
You are so talented, but also so down to earth. You always open your heart to us, you're like out best friend, our sister.
We can really tell that you are the writer of your posts, and that you write with the bottom of your heart.
And this is amazing.
Plus your photos are always incredible, dreamy. You're a fantastic person Kay', dont forget that.
Thanks for being there for us, and such a massive inspiration for my own personal blog.
Lots and lots of love from France, Victoriahttp://godsaveourdressing.blogspot.fr
Très classe, comme d'habitude ;) j'adore ton manteau oversize !!
You are only 21?! Wow! You are such an inspiration for you younger fashion-lovers (16 year olds), proving that the dream fashion life it not to far in the distance... Thank you for sharing your experiences, I always look forward to what adventure and once-in-a-lifetime experience is next on the blog!!
I love the red sweater, it looks so nice against your hair colour :)http://www.rosiemay.co.nz/
Je te suis depuis bien longtemps maintenant. Presque depuis les débuts de Kayture. J'ai tout de suite apprécié et suivi cette si jolie jeune femme du même âge que moi et de la même région de Suisse. Ce n'est que le deuxième commentaire que je laisse sur ton blog depuis bientôt 3 trois ans donc je suis une de tes lectrices et followers de l'ombre :). Cependant, j'ai envie de m'exprimer spécialement sur cet article. Tu écris toujours de façon très pure et très positive. Ce qui me plaît beaucoup vu que je te suis toujours. Mais je trouve qu'il manque un peu de ta touche personnelle. Tu semble tout aimer et tout trouver incroyable (et j imagine que c'est le cas ). Mais j'avoue que j'aimerai mieux te "connaître " et savoir plus ce que tu pense vraiment. Ce que tu aimes moins pour telle raison, ce que tu préfères par rapport à d'autres choses et ce que tu peux ressentir de différents. Ton expérience est unique et j'aime la partager avec toi. Mais j'apprécie particulièrement quand tu communiques quelque chose de plus personnel comme dans cet article où tu explique n'avoir que 21 ans et avoir besoin de moments de fou rire pour déconnecter de tout cet univers sérieux de la mode. Enfin, cela faisait un moment que j'avais envie de te faire part de se ressentit. J'espère que tu liras ce commentaire et comprend bien qu'il n'y a aucun sentiment négatif de ma part mais justensiles une envie de te découvrir plus humainement avec des doutes, des opinions et des avis plus marqué :)
je te souhaite tout le meilleur dans ta vie et ton épanouissement personnel, continues à nous faire toutes rêver comme ça ! Et j'espère boire un jour un smoothie sur une terrasse avec James, Fiona et toi. Et je vous poserai enfin toutes les questions que j'ai en tête !
N'ai pas peur d'être plus toi même !!! Tu vas que nous enchanter plus encore ^^
Des bisous et continue à vivre tes rêves
Love Paris, love the look, love the "it bag" you wear!

Love the beanie! It's the perfect shade of grey. Enjoy Paris and the Haute Couture fashion week! Take lots of pictures to share with us.http://www.theknitted.com
I love this look for you! The navy against the orangy-red makes a great contrast!
Love your blog!
I've been a bit critical in the past because of your extreme weightloss and all the posts about (too and maybe a bit exaggerated) healthy food - I was concerned about you and the influence your Blog might have on your young readers.
But - I continued to follow you - and I must say that you now look wonderfully healthy and natural again. You are glowing and pretty and your style is absolutely great. Stay the strong and powerful woman you are and take care of you!
Lots of love,
Love it! Love your outfit, love Paris and loooove your hair <3<3
I'm so happy you did Paris Haute Couture week! Looks like you're having an amazing time by the looks of your Instagram! I remember meeting you outside the LV Show Spring 2013, and it has been amazing watching you, your team and this blog grow!! And you are still the same humble Kristina! You have been such an inspiration to me and shown me that anything and everything is truly possible with hard work!! Keep doing what you're doing!! xx
This look is amazing! Its great for the winter but still super chic
You look amazing! Love the coat and boots!
Girl, you look stunning as always!! Kudos to you for having a tan going in the winter. Coming from someone who lives in Paris (whooohoo, we're in the same city right now!!) I can tell you that for me it's impossible around this time of year. Wish so badly I could have come and seen you today after your shows!!
You look SO cozy, Kristina! Unwinding in front of the fireplace with your best friend sounds like the best remedy after running around crazy all day/week. I hope you and the team get as much rest as you all can!http://withfaithandhappiness.com
Love your outfit!
Missed the outfits post! Love this one <3
You look stunning Kristina! Love your photography :)

Beautiful outfit, keep warm!http://www.theneonfactor.com
I'm also surprised you only started doing couture this year. You are the epitome of glmaourous sophistication and at only the age of 21 ! Well done to you. I would like to attend couture shows one day in the near future. The clothes are stunning. Enjoy Paris.
very nice outfit :)
love your coat!http://www.tunuevolook.com
My Fashion Blog
The look is simply perfect. Sometimes real beauty is found in simplicity, and that's why I always loved your style, because simple in an elegant way.You know how to do it!!! ;) For me, you are the most elegant blogger, honest!
I will never get tired of saying that Paris is the most magic city all over the world. I wish I could live there. I've been many times and never get tired of it, never. I love the cafes, where one can spend hours and hours reading in front of a cafe creme :) Needless to mention book shops, where little treasures can be found.
I also would like to know all the fashion world, but, right now I have to get along with university. It's nice, but I prefer working! However,I use to reward myself with a ring, or something like that. Yesterday I bought an incredible flower-ring!!! hahahaha :D
Well, I hope you spend a nice time in Paris!
Beautiful as always:P
Shall We Sasa
Simply but super chic!!!
Wow your trip sounds absolutely amazing! I wish I could go! And your look is so chic! The addition of color really takes it over the edge and I love the oversized fit of your coat!http://nomoreboringclothes.blogspot.com/
So beautiful xxhttp://www.waitwhatwear.tumblr.com
Stunning photos! Stay warm in Paris!
Love all the photos! So jealous, I wanna go to europe too!!
Hi Kristina! I've been following your stories for 6 months now but this is my first time to produce a comment here on your page (maybe my second). For you to read this comment is big enough for me as I got tons to say but still trying to keep it short and simple (because I know you're super busy). I still remember the first time I read your article and the next thing I knew....I'm dragged into your crazy adventures and always anticipate every new article. Along the way, you inspired me in so many way and I sensed few good changes in me. I started to wear white (which I never did), I open up a blog to express every thought of mine, I started to learn French, reading history of fashion and a whole lot more. But the biggest inspiration that you gave me is to get out of my comfort zone, do the things that makes me happy and enjoy life to the fullest. You helped me find happiness even in the smallest thing. And another thing is...I started to do some workouts and exercise my body which never really cross my mind. I owe all these changes to you. I have lots of dream but being a small girl, I'm too afraid. Then you came and inspired me every single day ( I even put 700+ photos of your 2014 articles in slides mood for my desktop background). If you're reading this, I just want to say thank you for bringing out the best in me, made me stronger and for your part, always stay beautiful, happy and 'coco'. All the love from your small Malaysian reader, Kristina! XOXOhttp://aishaensip.tumblr.com/
i love this outfit!! im from argentina and i love your blog so much, and your pictures... JUST PERFECT!!http://martinadenegri.blogspot.com.ar/
There's nothing I like more than a realistically warm but stylish outfit!
I really like this casual but still chic look! Love the sweater and the bag is a real dream! *_* Well, the location is amazing!
Je te souhaite une bonne journée!
I love your 'more high fashion looks' but whenever you put together an outfit that is a little bit more casual, I fall in love!
This look is so easy to copy using items from brands like Zara and Massimo Dutti. I love it!
Nice outfit! Love the blue maxi coat!http://trendenciesblog.com
Hi Kristina!!! I love this outfit, really!! You gave me an idea of what to wear in those super freezing days!! Thanks!!
The place where you took the phots is pure magic !! I've been there when I was just a child, but I still remember it as the most beautiful place on earth. Paris is elegance, love, lights, you are very lucky to stay there!! Say hello to Paris for me!!
Have a nice day Kristina!!! Bisous :-*

Park Hyatt Paris Vendome is a total blast! I spent there a few weeks with my family 3 years ago if my memory doesn't go wrong, and I found it one on the most exciting hotels in Paris! The design of the rooms, the breakfast full of yummy things, great small patio - awwww I hope to get there one more time))
About the outfit - I've already put my comment on the Insta page, but I will say once more - outfit is really cozy, comfortable, simple but so stylish, Kristina! And I like how you decided to dilute this dark pieces with a sunny one - the sweater! Great, really great! <3

Very casual look, not my favourite. But you look tres chic anyway :)
Your outfit screams perfection! Love that knitted beanie and the orange sweater!
Didn't have time to comment on your and Fiona's 'Girl Talk' post, but I absolutely loved it! You really know how to share bits and pieces of your crazy life with us. I really enjoyed reading it, it felt like old memories of going through girl talks in teen magazines - which is every girl's guilty pleasure.
You are so lucky to be able to attend Paris couture week. I am an aspiring couture designer and this is definitely my favorite part of the fashion industry. The craftsmanship, embellishments, tiny details - I love it all and I am so grateful you attend because now you get to share with us these shows and experiences.
I've seen pictures of the Park Hyatt suite on your Instagram and it looks absolutely unbelievable. Truly a magical place and you're the princess walking through it. If I ever visit Paris one day, I know where I'll be staying.
I hope you have loads of fun and I can't wait to see more pictures of your experiences! xx
