We ooh and ahh at haute couture, but we rarely stop to think, how did they create that awe-inspiring piece? Chanel has put together a short behind-the-scenes video, revealing how Look 39 from the Chanel Haute Couture Fall '09 collection was made.

Finally, the design is transferred onto tracing paper, and the magic begins. I'll let the work speak for itself.
