Chanel's Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show at Paris Fashion Week featured a live orchestra in the Grand Palais. The show looked grand indeed with a return of French model Ines de la Fressange who was Karl Lagerfeld's muse in the 80's and was the first model back then to sign an exclusive modeling contract with a haute couture fashion house. At 52 today, she's still stylish and dazzling and is considered one of the chicest women in Paris. Pictured above at right is one of her ad campaigns from the 80's. You can catch a short interview with her in Behind the Scenes video at the bottom.
Ines and Karl come together again!
Below are videos of the entire Chanel Fashion Show (Part 1, Part 2, and Behind the Scenes):
Chanel always brings lots of fanfare so lots of celebrities were in attendance. I loved how stylish both Keira Knightly and Vanessa Paradis looked.
