This Is What Happens When Karl Lagerfeld Hosts a Chanel Runway Show in Rome
When the Chanel Métiers d'Art show is going down, we don't just gear up for a cinematic set and a collection of over-the-top, impeccably designed looks to match — we predict a star-studded event for the books.
This year, Karl Lagerfeld did not disappoint, debuting his new collection at Cinecitta in Rome and choosing a theme any film fanatic would marvel at. Karl's latest extravaganza was inspired by the 1960s movie Boom!, which stars actress Elizabeth Taylor dressed in ornate headpieces and glittering jewels.
Read on to see the models and celebrities in attendance — including muse Kristen Stewart and Bella Hadid, who made her Chanel runway debut — along with atmospheric shots you can't miss from an evening the fashion set won't forget.
