Just when you thought Paris Fashion Week couldn’t get any better, we were gifted with the pièce de résistance that is the Chanel collection for AW16.
Whilst Karl Lagerfeld didn’t make as much of a spectacle out of the set as in recent times (we’re still wondering how we buy a ticket from the Chanel airport), the extravagance of the whole affair was still apparent in it’s restraint. Made to look like a classic Chanel atelier of yesteryear, the Grand Palais was set up in such a way that every guest was given a front row seat at one of the longest runways we have ever seen in our entire lives.
But amongst all of those front row guests, the golden chairs and the fresh white carpets, were our two favourite celebrity models and BFF’s, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, and MAN did they look like they were made for Chanel.
Kendall strutted the mile-long runway in a pale pink, quilted Chanel skirt suit, complete with hood for extra ~modern~ vibes. Paired with the best knee high boots we’ve seen in a long time, she worked that runway like she was born to be there.
Gigi was cosied up in a champagne coloured, quilted coa-dress and matching embellished scarf, which was styled with opaque black tights and plain black loafers, which made us wish away the remainder of these warm days and start praying for a cool southerly. Oh, and did we mention the insane eye makeup?!
Bella Hadid, Gigi’s sister, was also there doing her thang, dressed in a classic Chanel look of black tweed and layers of pearls and literally the cutest hat we have ever seen in our entire life. Some might say she could be mistaken for Coco Chanel herself!
Karl said his thank you’s with his godson, Hudson Kroenig, in tow, who is becoming a Chanel runway regular himself. Pays to have family in high places, huh?
