Colorful fall-winter menswear shows in Paris mixed high culture, androgyny and streetwear, as Paris Jackson, the daughter of the late pop icon Michael Jackson, stepped out for the cameras at Givenchy's library show -- fittingly in the City of Light.

The budding 18-year-old model and daughter of music royalty posed with a black Givenchy knit sweater that read "I Feel Love" and combat boots at Riccardo Tisci's Paris show.

Jackson -- often protected from the paparazzi since her father's death -- has tried to carve out a signature personal style in the last year as she has started to make public her strong interest in the fashion industry.

With swept back blond hair, Jackson exuded grown-up calm in oversize dark glasses as she posed for cameras at the old wooden doors of the Richelieu-Louvois library in the Bibliotheque Nationale de France.

As she took her front-row seat at Tisci's show inside, understated was not the word.

Circles, stars and stripes set off bold colors and patterns that blurred the lines between masculine and feminine, sportswear and a kind of domestic apron.

The Italian-born designer's signature penchant for sportswear styles was evident in sneakers with horizontal lacing and sweaters that evoked a loose basketball top silhouette.

The contrast of bookishness against street designs was not lost on the fashion press.

Long, masculine check shirts sported the myriad frills of an apron or delicate blouse. The androgynous musing reached a climax when Kendall Jenner strutted out ravishingly in a full-on, embellished blue check dress with arm slits.

It was high baroque.
