Chanel unveiled its Métiers d’Art collection Tuesday night in the most decadent fashion.
While this particular runway presentation typically takes place in far-flung cities like Hamburg, Paris and Rome, the iconic French house returned to showing in New York City for the first time in over decade.
Here are the highlights:
1. It took place at The Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Kicking off with champagne cocktail hour at 7 p.m., guests were escorted to the famous Temple of Deudur, where a square-shape runway awaited.
2. The A-List came out to play.
Versace boasted a major front row two nights prior at its pre-Fall presentation at the American Stock Exchange — but Chanel held its own with equally bold faced names.
On the chic guest list: Lily-Rose Depp, Christy Turlington Burns, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Margot Robbie, Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Sofia Coppola, Helena Christensen, Rinko Kikuchi and Julianne Moore.
3. Pharrell walked in the show.
He was wearing head-to-toe gold. Enough said.
4. The. Accessories. Were. Insane.
Oh, the clothes — gold-gilded and inspired by Egypt — they were decadently embellished with bejeweled collar necklaces, sparkly chandelier earrings, and even a pyramid shaped purse.
5. There was an after party!
Guests were shuttled from the museum to 71st and Cenral Park, where a retro-inspired Chanel Diner awaited.
Serving up cheeseburgers, french fries and spiked Shirley Temples, it was a feast. Both for the stomach and the eyes.
