The list of attendees that descended in Paris to see Chanel’s fall haute couture show was as enthralling as the ensembles that traipsed down the runway inside the Grand Palais. Amid the beautiful crowd of excited Chanel fans was the breathtaking runway set that boasted of a garden party theme with its lineup of glorious rosebushes. Another stunning design feature of the set was an imposing backdrop with intricate stone pillars seemingly carved out of the walls. The said prop however, was more than a fixture for it was also the venue for most of the photo opportunities. As such, all the stylish attendees gussied up to have their photos taken in front of the picture-perfect black-and-white background.
Attendees were walking definitions of sophistication in their sharp dresses and dashing suits. While most of the showgoers, which include Leslie Mann, Caroline de Maigret, Clemence Poésy and Michelle Harper, donned the classic Chanel colors to the event, others slipped into more colorful attires. One of them was Zhou Xun who stood out in her electric pink peplum top and blue mini skirt. Meanwhile, one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite women in the world, Diane Kruger, wore a refreshing powder blue dress from the label’s Resort 2013 collection.
