From Beijing to Shanghai, Chanel’s ‘The Little Black Jacket’ exhibition keeps on rolling.
On Thursday, local and international stars came out to support the event, including Tilda Swinton and mega star Li Yuchun, who I had said during Cannes Film Festival reminded me of the British actress with her androgynous style.
Tilda Swinton: Dialling down the androgyny, Tilda, who was the first person to wear a look from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection, selected a white sequin tulle dress from that same collection. It’s been a while since we last saw her wear a dress. Even during Cannes Film Festival she wore two trousered looks. Her loose-fitted dress with an embroidered front was styled with white Chanel pumps and barely there, approaching zero makeup.
Li Yuchun: The singer, who also didn’t wear a dress during Cannes, opted for a look from Chanel’s Fall 2013 collection, donning a heavy-looking black-and-white herringbone jacket with braided trims styled with black Chanel jeans and a white high-collared shirt from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The final touch came via her black Chanel boots and a silver chain necklace. Is there a little too much going on, or did she pull this off? I think she pulls it off effortlessly.
