Two days late but it’s still worth a post. Sorry this post is so late. I was caught up in other work that I didn’t have time to post about this on the same day I posted about the MET Gala. In case you didn’t know, the Chanel Cruise Show was on the exact same day as the MET Gala but that didn’t stop Karl Lagerfeld from hosting yet, another successful show.
Celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, Gisele Bundchen, CL, Han Ye Seul (and more) all attended the show looking fierce, as always, in Chanel attire.
Let me just take a moment to mention how absolutely adorable Karl Lagerfeld’s grandson looked. He walked the runway sandwiched between Karl and Soo Joo Park, currently one of South Korea’s leading models.
Inspired by Korea’s traditional costume, the hanbok (한복), he added a modern flair yet still incorporated the traditional silk patchwork, high waisted dresses, and the iconic Chanel tweed jacket.
These are just a few of my personal favorites from the show, but you can see the rest for yourself here.
Many of you have probably already seen, if not heard of, Beyonce’s iconic Givenchy dress that she wore to the MET Gala yesterday.
I loved the dress, not only because Beyonce literally “slayed” in it, but because Givenchy is one of the fashion brands that I absolutely admire. They’re classic, eccentric, bold and edgy, yet elegant.
It was love at first sight with Hubert de Givenchy’s designs after watching Audrey Hepburn’s movies. While Breakfast at Tiffany’s was where she wore the iconic black dress, the outfits that she wore in Charade are my personal favorites. The simplicity in the outfits is all you really need because the sleek, elegant designs speaks for itself.
While Hubert de Givenchy’s designs lean more towards classic and elegance, Riccardo Tisci switches it up by creating more of a gothic/modern, yet still maintaining that classic look. The outfit Rihanna wore for her Diamonds world tour is legendary.
His designs are probably one of the biggest inspirations for street wear, especially in South Korea.
