The Ladies Turned Out For Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld is never known for being subtle, and he did not disappoint with his cruise collection show in an aircraft hanger at Santa Monica Airport. It may sound like a mundane location, but it was all about the execution. A jet cruised up to the hangar and out came the Chanel clad models.

The real-life runway was then transformed into a catwalk as models paraded in front of Demi Moore, Smile singer and Chanel muse Lily Allen, Victoria Beckham and mum-to-be Milla Jovovich.

Recently back from a week of partying in the Bahamas and Janet Jackson’s birthday party in the Big Apple, a Chanel-clad Lindsay Lohan arrived a full five hours before the extravaganza began – catching up with her pal Karl who let her try on his designs.

Meanwhile, Victoria, who is in LA for a fortnight to film a fly-on-the-wall programme about her and husband David Beckham’s imminent move there, was paying close attention to the proceedings. The stylish former Spice Girl, who was looking ultra chic in her mint green vintage Chanel jacket, is hoping to establish herself on the fashion scene in America and is busy designing a new range of jeans.
