Paris Fashion Week started Tuesday, the last of the "bigs" in the multi-city cycle showing clothes for fall-winter 2012. There were only a few shows on opening day, but they included model Karlie Kloss opening the Anthony Vaccarello show (where one model, shown here, stumbled and was helped by her peers) and a mime walking the runway at the Aganovich show.

French fashion house Christian Dior launched DiorMag, an online magazine, on Wednesday, starting what promises to be a daily update with eight articles. The articles are all about Dior and its wares.

Paula Abdul has been a Laker girl, dancer, singer, choreographer, product pitchwoman and judge on "American Idol" and "The X-Factor." So of course she is is considering starting a fashion line. [WWD]

Banana Republic is launching its second "Mad Men" collection with a runway show on an airplane at 35,000 feet, with some fashion bloggers among the passengers. The collection goes on sale Thursday. [Fashionista]

Salvatore Ferragamo's resort show this season will be the first runway show ever allowed inside the Louvre in Paris. Apparently the storied museum was amenable because Ferragamo is sponsoring a new exhibit, "The Saint Anne, Leonardo da Vinci's Ultimate Masterpiece," that is scheduled to run there March 29 to June 25.
