The behind the scenes sneak peek to the build up to the show, gave an insight into the runway design, rehearsals and this season's runway stars, which included male models of the moment, Lucky Blue Smith and Dudley O'Shaughnessy. Supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Donalson and Isabeli Fontana, who has just flown to Paris via a visit to Dubai, also made an appearence with a sneak peek into the womenswear collection, which will take place in late February, 2016. The collection consisted of dreamy velvets, royal colours and luxurious layering. The men were dressed head to toe in true Balmain aesthetic with classic military jackets, sharp shoulders and touches of shine and sparkle. Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing explained backstage that this season: "I want to make all men feel like princes again."
