From Dior to Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier to Comme des Garçons, fab fashion houses wowed us with impressive collections at Paris Fashion Week!

And while the couture creations lent the runway plenty of drama, many runway theatrics—some planned, some unplanned—stole the spotlight from the chic clothing. 

Let's take a look back and relive the most memorable moments of the week!

In Vogue: The runway became a dance floor at Jean Paul Gaultier's show, where Coco Rocha gave us her best impression of Grease's Danny as she jumped and jived, and Karlie Kloss vogued her way across the catwalk. And though Madonna may have sung "strike a pose, there's nothing to it," Kloss did not exactly find that to be the case. "considering I wasn't even born when Madonna first taught the world how to 'Vogue'...I needed a little help learning the moves," she shared along with a picture from rehearsals. Way to make us feel old, Karlie.

Bejeweled Beauties: The eye-catching glitter tribal face masks at the Givenchy show sparkled brighter than the front row glitterati, including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Hailee Steinfeld. Made from Swarovski crystals applied to the models' faces, the masks made for the most memorable bling we've seen on a catwalk all season!
