Elsewhere in Europe, 3,000 Romanian youths wearing black or white masks rallied against drug abuse; models in Paris share a light moment before Russian fashion designer Alena Akhmadullina’s spring-summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection was presented; and the Quiksilver Pro France surfing competition is underway in Hossegor.

Add stops in India, Russia and Kuala Lumpur to round out the report.
