Karl Lagerfeld Works His Magic at Chanel -- With a Little Help From His Famous Friends

Posted on


Karl Lagerfeld charmed the fashion pack at Chanel’s spring/summer 2009 show on Friday with a magical collection of light sparkly boucle dresses and metallic ruffled gowns accessorized with feathers, sparkly jewels and lucite platforms. The models strutted out, through a Chanel ’boutique’ constructed true to size on the runway. Working a different type of magic from their front row seats were Harry Potter pals Emma Watson and Clemence Poesy, giggling together alongside Jemima Khan, Zoe Kravitz and Claudia Schiffer, the current face of the brand. “I loved the shoes with the feather detail,” gushed the German supermodel after the show “and the sleeves on the dresses.. amazing!” Milla Jovovich, who is in Paris for meetings on possible design projects, couldn’t have agreed more, telling PEOPLE “The sleeves were so beautiful, they had a really old fashioned quality.” With Schiffer caught in a sea of bright papparazi flashes, screams of “Claudia!” filled the airy Grand Palais and it was left to the 18-year-old Watson to congratulate Mr Lagerfeld, with a kiss on each cheek before vanishing into the Parisian streets. Magic indeed. –Monique Jessen
