The Chanel Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection was a vision in pure white, with the occasional dash of black breaking up the ethereal theme.
The traditional Chanel suit was reworked in new fabrics, with sequins, PVC, appliquÃ© and delicate embroidery taking over from the expected bouclÃ©.
Karl Lagerfeld presented a-lines and square shouldered shapes. Skinny pants, shrinking jackets, cropped sleeves, and fantasy gowns.
The paper rosette headpieces were simply divine, and provided the perfect finishing touch.
The venue was covered in tumbling organza, appliquÃ© flowers and gigantic paper blooms to set the ethereal tone at the Chanel show.
We are not used to seeing a lot of white on the red carpet, so I would be interested in seeing who would wear these pieces.
Olga Kurylenko was back to her breath-taking best wearing a tailored white skirt, and a sleeveless black sweater, with stunning statement necklace. All Chanel of course.
Sporting fresh cut bangs, Keira Knightley – the face of Coco Mademoiselle – was also head to toe in Chanel.
She looks gorgeous wearing a fabulous tweed skirt, a black sweater and studded heels.
