Continuing the fun from Milan, London, and New York Fashion Week we’ve compiled a list of songs heard on the Parisian runways that are bound to get you up off your feet and stompin’ down your very own catwalk. When I mean stompin’ I seriously mean stompin’! (Check out the Rick Owens show featuring step dancers after the jump.)
Paris Fashion Week has been quite the wild and extravagant affair. The Jean Paul Gautier show alone was like watching a weird/bizzarro mash-up version of So You Think You Can Dance/Dancing With The Stars/America’s Next Top Model. What other runway would you see supermodel Coco Rocha dance along to Grease while fellow supermodel Karlie Kloss vogues down the runway? Blink and you might even miss an Amy Winehouse-lookalike sashay down the catwalk.
There are so many different looks and songs in this show that it alone could provide all the tracks to this playlist. But don’t fret we’ve got songs from other shows too. So plug in your earphones or blast your speakers up because here is your PFW playlist.

The show has a mash-up of Grease’s “You’re The One That I Want”, The Fast & Furious’s “Tokyo Drift”, a ballroom version of The Police’s “Roxanne” and more. The show ends on this happy note.
