Chanel presented their Pre-Fall 2011 collection on the lit terrace of Istanbul’s Ciragan Palace Kempinski Hotel on Wednesday.

Models sashayed down the terrace overlooking the Bosphorus, against the backdrop of a virtual palace.

The authentic decor added a new dimension to the opulence and vibrant colours of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

Kirsten Dunst joined local guests within this magical atmosphere.

The actress wore a look a few seasons ahead of the Pre-Fall presentation, as she selected a Resort 2012 ivory dress.

Staying true to her wonderfully whimiscal aesthetic she opted for beautiful side swept curls, red lips, snake-skin peep-toes and silver bracelet completed her look.
