    All the looks from Vogue World: Paris as Serena Williams and Sabrina Carpenter make surprise runway cameos

    The third iteration of Vogue World has set up camp in the French capital ahead of next month's Olympics, putting on a parade in the city's Place Vendôme.


    World-class athletes have descended on Paris — but not for the Olympics.

    The third iteration of Vogue World has set up camp in the French capital, putting on a parade in the city's Place Vendôme.

    With the Olympics just weeks away, the event saw plenty of celebrity cameos as models, musicians and athletes paid homage to fashion's relationship with sport.

    But first, what actually is Vogue World?

    Think of it as if the Met Gala collided with a travelling circus.

    Now in its third year, Vogue World started in New York before popping up in London last year.

    With all eyes on Paris ahead of next month's Olympics, it was hardly a surprise when it was revealed as this year's host city.

    "If Vogue World: New York was a street fair, and Vogue World: London was a glamorous night at the theatre, Paris will be a kind of opening ceremony," Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour said in February.

    Here were the biggest celebrity cameos and runway surprises

    To mark 100 years since the last Olympics were held in Paris in 1924, the event paired a sport with a French fashion house from every decade since the 1920s.

    Singer Sabrina Carpenter surprised audiences when she strutted out during the 1940s portion of the evening, wearing retro-inspired swimwear as part of the aquatics section.

    In the following decade, models and self-confessed horse girls Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner rode horseback through the cobblestone streets as part of the 1950s equestrian display.

    Later, Katy Perry became an even bigger surprise when she walked the runway — marching band in tow — during the 1980s portion of the evening dedicated to martial arts.

    And you can't talk about tennis during the 2000s without mentioning the domination of grand-slam champions and sisters Venus and Serena Williams, who both made an appearance.

    Finally, here are some of the best (and weirdest) looks
