Golden Lion Couture.
Karl Lagerfelds Chanel Couture Autumn/Winter 2010-11, showcasing at the gorgeous, huge Grand Palais where the melting ice-berg from his ready-to-wear show in March was replaced with a huge golden lion represting Coco Chanel's star sign, resting a giant pearl in it's paws as the models entered.
As the likes of Anna Wintour who works the jacket thrown over the shoulder as a cape trend, Grace Coddington, Jessica Alba and my favourite Gossip Girl stars Leighton Meester and Blake Lively sat front row, the show began. The clothes made with russian influences, smothered as they were with glittering embellishment, fur trims, silk brocade and fine tweed coats.
The collection reminded me of the wealthy mature lady via grand coats and embellished dresses in rich, dark tones with decorative cuffs, collars and pockets.
The dresses as gorgeous as the models with finely blow-dryed, wispy hair and red lips wore the classic, simple, shift shapes perfect for the day, yet more elaborate and jewelled full length versions for the night. My favourite dress was one at which was a toffee toned palette, just above the knee in a rich heavy fabric with exquisite embellishment. The clustered gold and coloured stone cuffs perfected the look whereas im not too keen on the futuristic metallic boots. The dress after was covered in pearls and the cage, cobweb effect of the boots still werent my taste. Other dresses reminded me of indian weddings as the rich colours of navy and gold mixed together. One look has stuck in my mind which is a two piece, skirt and cropped jacket tux combination which is sure to be taken off by fashionista Alexa Chung. Remember the waiting list for the newest Chanel nail colour is always weeks, so get in there before others get there filthy Chanel paws on it, its a burgendy red.
As always Lagerfeld always tries to inject some fun to his collection which in this couture show meant as the final model entered with a lion-head man, i thought it could be the man itself but yet to appear, model of the moment - Baptiste Giabi which i couldnt complain about, he looked just as gorgeous in his white shirt as the Karl Lagerfeld did himself.
