With Blake Lively back in New York City filming ‘Gossip Girl’, Chanel had to rustle up a B Team to fill their front row yesterday.

Lily Allen made a welcome return to the front row wearing a green tweed Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 coat which she paired with a bright red Chanel quilted bag.

The other Brits in the front row were Florence Welch who managed to pick yet another floral floaty dress from the Chanel Spring 2011 collection.

Alexa Chung wore a cream long sleeve mini dress with grey tights and black pumps, and Welsh singing sensation Duffy opted for a tweed Chanel shift dress which she managed to make look like a Zara copy.

Clemence Poesy oozed Parisian chic in the front row wearing a black and white tweed jacket, grey top and black flared skirt.

Emma Roberts and Anna Wintour made up the Americans support in the front row.

Emma opted for the cutest most adorable baby blue Chanel dress from the Spring 2011 collection, whilst Anna did wear a look from the host on this occasion.

Her floral printed colour dress – which she paired with her favourite satin boots – is from the Spring 2011 collection.

It looks like she had it modified so the leather jacket has a fur trim.
