Behind The Scenes- Front Row At Chanel’s Palatial Show In The Gardens Of Versailles

Monsieur Chanel AKA Karl Lagerfeld called upon 200 or so fashionable folks like Vanessa Paradis, Ines de La Fressange and Caroline Sieber for the Chanel 12/13 Cruise Collection. It was as over the top as Chanel shows usually are. This time Karl set his sights on the palace of Versailles. The show was specifically set in the Bosquet des Trois Fontaines area within Versailles whish has been recently restored. Decked out in head-to-toe Chanel, the guests did not disappoint in sartorial inspiration. From bight colored heels to floral dresses the mood and weather were quite cheerful.

We have to wonder what Marie Antoinette would have thought of Karl taking over her ornate, lush gardens with Chanel gift bags, finger food and Alice Della’s drum set? When asked after the show, he actually summed up the whole event in two perfect words, "serious frivolity."
