Photos of Michèle Lamy smoking at Paris Fashion Week

Plus Doja Cat, Tommy Cash, and… Usher

The psychic glamour of Michèle Lamy sticking her ink-tipped fingers into a pack of Camel Blues. The psychic glamour of Michèle Lamy pulling on the dregs of a Camel Blue. The psychic glamour of Michèle Lamy cackling on a street corner with a Camel Blue slotted between her dental implants. These are all images that people would do well to sit with and study, especially those who piled into Kylie Jenner’s comments over couture week to express their confusion at “the granny” on the front row. “The lady on her right is scaring me,” one person commented – and so she should! 

Other people asked why Haider Ackermann and Jean Paul Gaultier were touching Kylie’s dress (in their own atelier). Anyway, smoking kills but looking at pictures of people smoking does not. They are a mainstay of street-style photography, loaded with more nonchalance and froideur than a Jenner-Kardashian’s Instagram stare. This is at odds with the Elf Bar, of course, which just makes someone look like they are honking on a portable charger. Click through the gallery above to see the best in street style from the AW23 menswear shows and SS23 couture shows in Paris, where Usher, Tommy Cash, and Doja Cat came together in an unsettling blunt – cig? – rotation.
