|The Leaf Invite|
We all know Paris Fashion week is well and truly under way but the show we have all been waiting for has finally happened – the crème de la crème of Couture has graced our presence– Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Sumer 2013.
|Inside the enchanted forest|
The Grand Palais was transformed into an avant garde enchanted forest – giving Raf Simons’ “garden” efforts a kick to the kerb, as Lagerfeld installed an entire botanical garden into the Palais – genius!
|Inside the epic amphitheatre|
The chilly forest and eerie scenery set the scene as guests hurried into the amphitheatre for warmth, equipped with their leaf invite, a sign of what was to come.The guests marvelled at Lagerfeld’s creation of the outdoor forest brought to life indoors. Bird sounds and frosty air, created a perfect illusion of enchantedness.

As always the Chanel runway stages some of the most theatrical make-up we have ever seen – hurling two major trends onto our “must try” list – the new Smokey eye and the messy-up style, think gothic with a twist.
Think Delicate black Chantilly lace layered over a cream boucle suites worn with thigh high skinny leather boots.
|A contemporary floral spin|
A guest appearance from Lagerfeld’s 4 year old Godson – Hudson stole the show, along with two models who donned Couture Bridal gowns which had such intricate detailing on them.
|How cute is lil Hudson?|
Was the Wedding Finale a sign to the recent same sex marriage protest in Paris last week, this we will never know – what we do know is the delicate structure and heavenly layers of those gowns are to die for!
Again Lagerfeld delivered on queue with the season haute pieces, and left us all inspired and lusting for more.
