Paris Couture Week kicked off last week for the Autumn/Winter 2021 season. And one of the most exciting moments included the return of Balenciaga, the first since the fashion house left haute couture in 1967.

Malaysian model Gwen Lu happened to just be in the thick of it all. She walked the runway in a gorgeous black dress, as the fashion week opened its doors to physical shows once again.
