Frank Ocean: Fashion is inspirational

Frank Ocean has praised the biggest shows of Paris Fashion Week.

The singer graced many of Paris Fashion Week’s hottest catwalks this season, including Givenchy, Chanel and Valentino.

The 25-year-old star seemed quite taken with the events.

“I think fashion shows are great,” he gushed to Fashionista.

“The production that goes into doing these sorts of things is pretty inspiring and I just like to see beautiful things and beautiful people. All people are beautiful.”

Givenchy focused on dark colours for Fall/Winter 13, while Chanel stuck to its classic style and Christian Dior kept things ladylike and elegant.

For Frank, there were certain pieces that particularly caught his eye.

“I went to Givenchy and I loved the noise that the sheer dresses made. I saw Chanel and there was a cool double-bag hip thing that one of the girls wore that was pretty fly,” he recalled.

“The production was pretty awesome at the Grand Palais, too. It’s a beautiful place. I saw Dior and I think Raf [Simons, creative director] did a really good job. I loved the production there also.”

Paris Fashion Week drew to a close yesterday, with Miu Miu one of the final brands to show.

The fashion house pulled in an impressive front row, including Renée Zellweger, January Jones and Zoe Saldana.

January went for a ‘60s style, rocking a cute shirt tucked into shorts and accessorised with a black headband.

Despite hailing from the same era, it was a very different look to that of her Mad Men character Betty Francis.

“Betty never gets to do Mod, so I thought it would be fun - especially for Miu Miu,” she smiled to WWD.

Renée rocked a cute black dress, while Zoe went for leather pants in the same colour.
