The Chanel fashion show in Paris had a retro, late-80s feel to it and writing that sentence made me feel old to re-realize that the late 80s are now retro. Nobody showed up in a Delorean or anything, but flat shoes were all the rage on the models on the catwalk.
But since my knowledge of fashion is more cursory than that of celebrities, let’s talk about the famous faces in the crowd. Claudia Schiffer was there, making nice with her fellow countryman, Karl Lagerfeld, and I am reminded of one of my favorite celebrity Halloween costumes of all time from this past year. On his other side is Sofia Coppola, looking absolutely tiny next to the giantess that is Claudia Schiffer. She’s looking mighty Brigitte Bardot in these pix–love the hair.
One of my favorite young fashion mavens, Blake Lively, from “Gossip Girl” was there, looking adorable as usual–although, I do wish I would have seen her in something a bit more youthful.
More photos from the Chanel show featuring Sophia Coppola, Diane Kruger, Marianne Faithfull, Claudia Schiffer, Anna Mouglalis, Suzy Menkes and Blake Livey are after the jump.
