The ‘Gabrielle Chanel. Manifeste de Mode’ exhibition, supported by Chanel, is the first retrospective about Gabrielle Chanel ever to be held in France.
It was due to take place back in March at the Palais Galliera; which would’ve also been a celebration of the reopening of the museum after 2 years of renovation, but due to the pandemic, it finally opened on October 1.
Chanel ambassadors Marion Cotillard and Vanessa Paradis attended the reopening.
Marion Cotillard: The face of Chanel No.5 wore a Chanel Fall 2020 Haute Couture red tweed dress which incorporated an off-the-shoulder design to keep the classic look feeling fresh.
I’m on the fence when it comes to her hair.
On the one hand a ballerina bun would’ve imbued some a supreme level of sophistication for the look, but on the other hand, the relaxed nature of the styling is oh so Marion, as she oozes that Parisian, “I just threw this on” chic that I love.
Vanessa Paradis: The French actress was looking equally chic wearing a look from Chanel’s Fall 2019 Haute Couture collection.
The faux feathers and tiered skirt gives this look a lighter than air vibe, to enhance the effortless nature of Vanessa’s beauty.
Even though I can’t see the full length, I’m pretty confident that she wore those Chanel tuxedo shoes, as they were her go-to during the Deauville American Film Festival last month.
