LIGHT ME UP MR LAGERFELD
Bless Karl Lagerfeld. Who else could get away with scheduling a fashion show for 10pm mid-week?
According to New York Magazine, "at that hour, everyone is supposed to be out at a party in celebration of the launch of a postage stamp or ice cream bar or whatever else the industry has decided needs to be celebrated that evening."
Regardless, last night, every fabulous person you can think of (Anna Wintour, Andr! Leon Talley, Diane Kruger and Alexa Chung to name a few...) went to the Grand Palais at 10pm to see the Fall Winter 2011 Chanel Couture Show.
I love the OTT Mr Lagerfeld — who has hosted previous Broadway worthy shows that include an iceberg, a barn, and a volcano — turned the Palais into the Place Vendôme, replacing the Napoleon Bonaparte statue with one of Coco Chanel.
The pièce de résistance? Just as Lagerfeld took his walk through the elaborate setting reveling in yet another great success, the boots adorning the models in the show lit up. Bravo.
