A Chanel show is like an inverted magic trick. It’s on-the-edge-of-your-seat enchanting, but none of the thrill is lost when you know how it’s put together. And if there’s one thing better than Chanel Haute Couture, it’s Chanel Haute Couture in high-def motion.
If your front row invite to Karl Lagerfeld’s derelicte spectacular at the Grand Palais was lost in the mail this year, relive the magic via this behind-the-scenes video of the show’s staging. Highlights include Milla Jovovich snapping the runway from her iPhone, the beautifully desecrated Grand Palais filmed through a spy hole in a crumbling wall, and tweeds sparkling so hard it’s as if they’re being followed by the glitter effect mouse cursor off Nicki Moore‘s dreams.
And those accessories — baby-sized rings that don’t even fit on your fingers and jeweled headbands worn backwards have never seemed like such a good idea. We can’t believe Rihanna didn’t deem all this worthy of actual clothes.
