Day 8: Paris Fashion Week SS13

Cocaine Princess here.

Today there were 3 big name luxury fashion houses that presented their collection for SS13.

Chanel 
The venue for Chanel SS13 was held at the Grand Palais with 13 turbines.

Guests included Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper. I loved how she and her daughter are both dressed in Chanel.

Posted at the show: A No Smoking Sign-- how stylish!


Karl Lagerfield's inspiration: "I started to sketch in St Tropez over the summer and it was so hot I wanted some fresh air." Keeping in theme with the turbines, many of the tweed outfits had a solar panel pattern theme that was worked into the outfits.


Floaty, chiffon sheer dresses:


Let's talk about Chanel accessories:

The famous Chanel Hula Bag!




After the show, Lagerfeld, wearing a candy-cane stripe cravat and signature fingerless gloves, was asked what his secret was. "There is none," he replied, looking perplexed. "Work."  

Valentino
It was all about seduction and elegance at Valentino SS13. One word to describe the collection, gorgeous!

Backstage before the show:


Brilliant creative director Sarah Burton on her SS13 Collection:
"It was bringing back the silhouette of the house and embracing the female form - the hip and bust. But there was a lightness to it. It still felt erotic but not overt," explained Burton backstage after the show, joking that "most women are worker bees" - which made then for the perfect collection match.

Tomorrow: Day 9: Paris Fashion Week.
