One of the best things about a Chanel show is seeing how Karl reinvents the Grand Palais. A giant gold lion? A luxe Mumbai banquet? A looming globe? All things he’s done in the past, but for Chanel’s Fall 2013 Haute Couture show he just decided to tear the whole thing up dystopian fiction style and chuck in a whole bunch of rubble, because that’s how the Kaiser rolls.
This weekend marked the halfway point of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, which means there was no shortage of high-wattage celebs, even higher-wattage gowns, and as much flash photography as your style-obsessed mind can handle. This weekend’s best dressed, coming right up!
In a fashion fantasy world, does it get much better than snagging an invite to Chanel‘s annual cruise show in the south of France? (A ticket to one of Karl’s couture shows doesn’t count — that’s just impossible.) That’s why these photos of the Kaiser’s favorite lady muses (and, of course, Baptiste Giabiconi) will have us daydreaming about Cap d’Antibes for the rest of the day. And also wondering how Blake Lively managed to not give photogs a full view of her underpants, but more on that in a sec.
Between all the brouhaha surround New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out, and the Toronto Film Festival, one wouldn’t be remiss in forgetting all about Venice. But contrary to popular belief, the Venice Film Festival has been trucking along at a very fashionable rate, complete with today’s closing ceremony. Now that it’s finally over, we’ve collected our thoughts — and our judgements! — and put together a gallery of what we think are some of Venice’s most fashionable moments. Who do you think was best dressed?
