Victoria Beckham is clearly not one for discreet arrivals. At the Chanel show in Paris, the Spice Girl’s arrival caused such excitement there was almost a stampede before the show had begun. A flashbulb frenzy began the second she arrived at the celeb-packed venue, and screams for her to strike a pose from the paparazzi pen made everyone stop and stare. It also meant that fellow front-row attendees Kirsten Dunst, Claudia Schiffer and Courtney Love all managed to get to their seats without anyone batting so much as an eyelash! Themes at the spring/summer show included stars and stripes, denim underwear and matching blazers worn with futuristic, silver peep toe boots — and, of course, a little signature Chanel tweed. The surprise of the show were ankle purses, suggest that Kaiser Karl may have been inspired by the ankle alcohol-monitering devices worn by various celebrities recently, showing several versions through out the show. Posh, who was not wearing Chanel, made her way up onto the catwalk to congratulate the designer after the show. “It was great, probably his best collection yet,” she told PEOPLE. With a flash of platinum hair, tanned limbs and a vintage ’50s green dress so vivid it explains her glued-on sunglasses, she was off in a flurry of flashbulbs. Ooh, la la!
