DESIGNER: Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel

THE INSPIRATION: Girlish elegance that oozed soft, feather-light femininity, with no shortage of ruffles and frills

TOP LOOKS: Intricate sequin and crystal embellishments mimicked classic Chanel tweed for a truly glamorous twist. A dress featuring a sequinned bodice and a cloud-like concoction of nude skirts will no doubt make its way down the red carpet in the coming weeks. Despite the impossible detail in the pieces, the mood was relaxed, with plenty of dropped waists and sheer, floating layers.

WHO WAS THERE: Vanessa Paradis and Kirsten Dunst were amongst the chic celebs to sit f-row.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: With Karl's flat pump policy on the catwalk, this was comfortable luxury, Lagerfeld style. Aside from the pointed satin slip-ons, there was not a single harsh edge to the collection, and models seemingly floated up the runway. Silhouettes were timeless, but the nude and pink colour palette with accents of black felt suitably now.

Take a look at highlights from the show below.
