I am so over the fashion world's obsession with Beth Ditto. The Gossip's fat frontwoman has been everywhere in recent weeks. On the cover of one magazine (naked), between the sheets in another. She might as well have been the official mascot at Paris Fashion Week. She posed with Karl Lagerfeld before squeezing into the sequinned bustier and hotpants he had designed especially for her to perform in at the Fendi party. She's been snapped hanging out with Kate Moss and front row at Vivienne Westwood. At the Jean Paul Gaultier and Loewe shows, she wrapped herself in skintight printed dresses.

Renaissance statues, Surrealism, high-class hookers... these days, there is little that surprises as the purported inspiration behind a catwalk collection. But it still takes a lot of imagination to transform cartoon rodents into muses. Nevertheless, the flamboyant US designer Jeremy Scott did just that with a Mickey Mouse-inspired show at Paris Fashion Week, which drew to a close on Thursday.

It is, as they say, the final insult. Nearly six months after Sir Fred Goodwin resigned as chief executive of Royal Bank of Scotland following its costly government bailout, not to mention the disclosures that he is to receive a £703,000-a-year pension, we face the prospect of seeing his signature on our bank notes for two more months.

The British designer Hussein Chalayan offered a persuasive demonstration yesterday that avant-garde design can be deeply sexy. He took the idea of body-con clothing to a new level as he unveiled his latest collection at Paris Fashion Week, showing clingy dresses with brightly coloured leather panels moulded to the breasts and buttocks in an anatomical second skin.

Seriously luxe, undeniably cool, Nicolas Ghesquière manages it season after season for Balenciaga. The label's autumn/winter collection, which opened Paris Fashion Week yesterday, combined decadent fabrics with the kind of modern, sexy shapes pursued by Ghesquière's hip devotees.

Paris Fashion Week came to a close this weekend with strong showings from Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and John Galliano. Marc Jacobs, the creative director at Louis Vuitton, was clearly keen to strike a more grown-up note than he did last season. Not only were the clothes more elegant and sophisticated, but instead of an industry spat over a late start at his own label, and Jacobs pulling faces on the catwalk at Vuitton, the show started promptly and he appeared beforehand urging everyone to take their seats.
