A room of gorgeous people dripping in Chanel and diamonds — could anything be more glamorous? Well, perhaps if the rain had held out, but no matter. The 80th anniversary of Coco Chanel‘s “Bijoux De Diamants” collection was still a sight to behold.
Diane Kruger, perfect specimen that she is, wore one of our favorite pieces from the house’s just-walked Spring 2013 collection: the glitzy solar panel minidress, which she paired with an unexpected yellow clutch and a killer pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. The ever-adorable Elle Fanning wore a velvet dress from the Fall 2012 Couture collection, which unfortunately veered into costume territory with its cutesy collar and prim row of buttons, but that jewelry? Drop dead gorgeous. Same goes for the ice on Rose Byrne and January Jones, who chose simple, unadorned designs that ensured all eyes were on their bijoux.
Alexa Chung and Giovanna Battaglia selected panniered dresses from the Resort 2013 collection (also all-time favorites, we’ll note), while Constance Jablonski turned up in the same navy gown newly-engaged ambassador Poppy Delevigne wore to the Met Ball this year.
We know it’s hard to choose with a crowd like this, but who do you think did Karl proudest last night?
