Chanel Spring 2011 Through FabSugar's Eyes!

Karl, Claudia, Keira! I have just returned from the Chanel show at the Grand Palais. Even the anticipation of the show was fabulous. Walking to the entrance, swarms of photographers surrounded celebrities and VIPs dressed to kill. Once inside, all you saw was white, black, and silver. There was a giant symphony set up in the back and three massive water fountains built as the backdrop for the runway, which was twice the size of last year's show. There was a lattice floor structure built around each of the fountains and one in front of the conductor. The seating lined the outer rim of the room, with many twists and turns, creating quite an extensive front row. Each celebrity was sitting in his or her respective country's designated area, and I had a first-class place four rows directly behind Claudia Schiffer and Rachel Bilson, whom I was able to interview — more on that later.

Spotted in the crowd: Vanessa Paradis, Grace Coddington, Keira Knightley, Lou Dillon, Alexa Chung, Lily Allen, Florence Welch, Poppy Delevigne, and Leigh Lezark. The music started and the lovely Carmen Kass, Lily Donaldson, Karolina Kurkova, along with about 20 more models, strutted around wearing some of the most exquisite suits, shift dresses, hot pants, and gowns. My favorite looks included a black, tea-length evening gown with a beautiful brooch that crisscrossed at the decollete, and the stunning peach, feather finale dress. Accessories included feathers and chains in silver, pewter, and gold in the form of earrings, hair pieces, and necklaces. For the finale, Karl made his way around the runway, trailed by all of the leggy ladies wearing his designs. Apparently Twitter was blocked so that nothing from the show would be leaked prematurely. "The power of Karl" and "There's no one like Karl, he's the backbone of France" were just some of the phrases I overheard. This confirmed for me that Chanel really does it best.
