The (Fashion) House Always Wins

Karl Lagerfeld took a gamble for Chanel’s Autumn Winter 15/16 haute couture show at Paris Fashion Week.

Transforming the Grand Palais into a high rolling casino complete with model croupiers, roulette tables and slot machines, Lagerfeld enlisted a star cast made up of his celebrity pals and muses to set the catwalk scene rather than sit front row.

Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore, Rita Ora, Lily Collins, Jemima Kirke, Vanessa Paradis and her daughter with Johnny Depp, Lily-Rose Depp, were decked out in jewels from Chanel’s 1932 collection of jewellery and all wore bespoke outfits designed especially for them by Lagerfeld. Models paraded along the outskirts of the scene, with Kendall Jenner closing the show for the bridal finale in a white trouser suit.

Chanel remains ahead of the fashion pack, raising the stakes every season.
