Haute Couture Week has officially kicked off, and Chanel’s runway show was, as always, a highlight. Held at the Grand Palais in Paris, the shimmering silver room, complete with two parallel staircases, and a 12-piece orchestra led by French musician, Sebastien Tellier set the tone for what was one incredible show.
As the music began, models descended down the staircases in a spectacle of iridescent gowns, sheer two-pieces, beautiful button down jackets, metallic kneepads, and some very cool sneakers. The metallic eye makeup and spiked hairdos added a punk vibe to the dreamy collection.
At the end of the show, Karl Lagerfeld emerged to take his bow, accompanied by the bride (model-of-the-moment, Cara Delevingne) and a young ring bearer, Lagerfeld’s godson, Hudson Koening. The elaborately embroidered column gown worn by Delevigne was the icing on top of a spectacular show.
