Heat Hits Couture Week Like a Plague

>> Paris is sizzling . . . and not necessarily in a good way. The city is experiencing a heat wave right in time for couture, and the weather is messing with everyone's cool and collected fronts. 

Reports first came yesterday that the sun beating down through the glass-ceilinged Grand Palais, venue to Chanel, had attendees "sweating so uncontrollably that they downed the petit bottles of Evian waiting on every seat within minutes of entering."  And indeed, watching the video of the show, the number of programs being used as fans is so great, it almost distracts from the clothes passing by. 

Givenchy hosted the same problem — programs doubling as fans for the entire front row, models had to be fanned backstage — it even got to Riccardo Tisci, who wiped his face off as he was posing for photos and told his publicist, "We have to do something. I am melting."
