Since 1955 Karl Lagerfeld has been telling the world what to wear. Having worked not only on his own named brand, Monsieur Lagerfeld has also designed for Balmain, Chloe, Fendi and most famously, Chanel. Describe as a ‘fashion icon of our time’, he is as well known for his controversial quips as he is for is decadent designs.
While Karl Lagerfeld might just be one of the greatest designers of our time, you wouldn’t know it from Chanel’s front row. Presenting his AW14 Haute Couture collection for Chanel today, Monsieur Lagerfeld filled the front row with questionable celebrities wearing questionable outfits. While they were most certainly adorning incredible Chanel designs, they most certainly didn’t look in the mirror before leaving the house.
With a front row not only including current brand ambassador Kristen Stewart, but also Jared Leto, Lily Collins, Alice Dellal and Dakota Johnson, the style mistakes by all are hard to ignore. Thank god for the stylish Anna Wintour, Poppy Delevingne and Baz Luhrmann for adding a touch of glamour to the guest list.
Perhaps they should have taken Coco Chanel’s advice – “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”
