RAWR! Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2011 Show Channels King Of the Jungle

Uncle Karl Lagerfeld does nothing on a small, subtle scale. So take that into mind when seeing the ostentatious, golden lion that was the centerpiece of the Chanel show in Paris yesterday.

Stars on hand to soak up the Aslan-like monument were vampalicious Jessica Alba, Leighton Meester, Milla Jovavich, Blake Lively, Clemence Poesy, and more.

The show, which relied heavily on sequins and continued upon the gold theme, concluded with Lagerfeld’s favourite male model of the moment, Baptiste Giabiconi, escorting the bride – who traditionally closes couture shows – wearing a stuffed lion-head mask with his impeccable tuxedo. Very Beauty & The Beast.
