Paris Fashion Week officially winds down this week, and we've admired both the breathtaking runway looks and the spectacular celebrity style statements seen on the front-row attendees.

Plenty of our favorite stars packed their bags and traveled overseas to both London and Paris to support their favorite designers and turn some heads along the way. 

One glance at the fashion week wardrobes from these lovely leading ladies and we couldn't but notice that there was a strong recurring theme: black and white.

In the City of Light, we spotted Marion Cotillard at Dior, Nicole Richie at the Stella McCartney show and Jessica Chastain at Chanel all wearing the classic combination in a variety of ways.

Cotillard looked ladylike in a head-to-toe Dior ensemble, while Richie rocked a bold monochrome swingy dress with a distinctly edgier vibe.

Chastain exuded classic elegance in a creamy blouse tucked into a satin pencil skirt, and Olivia Palermo was cool and crisp in Tibi's drop-waist checker dress paired with Brian Atwood boots at Antonio Berardi's show in London.

Other celebs in the eye-catching trend include Ashley Olsen at the H&M runway show in Paris, Jessica Alba in a tuxedo-inspired suit at Stella McCartney and Kirsten Dunst at the Saint Laurent show. 

The adorable fashion darlings all opted for sleek separates that proved to be timeless, chic and perfectly polished from day to night. 

And while we love vibrant colors and bold patterns for spring, it seemed like black and white was the way to go to pay homage to fashion collections previewing fall.

One thing's for sure, each celeb looked simply stunning and flaunted her unique sense of style.
