Chanel Resort 2013
With beauty marks shaped like the famous double-C logo affixed to their cheekbones, a bevy of models strolled through the gardens at Versailles to present Chanel's Resort 2013 collection.
The rococo embellishments on many of the garments Karl Lagerfeld sent down the runway made it impossible to imagine him showing the collection anywhere else. Floral embroidery accented modernized versions of what French nobles wore to the court of Louis XVI, and many of the looks were paired with pastel-colored flatforms. Derek Blasberg likened the looks to "Marie Antoinette in denim" — an apt description indeed. The monarch wouldn't have looked totally out of place in one of Lagerfeld's denim vests — trimmed as they were, of course, in gold rope.
