    I think it is odd how one of the most influential people in the history of fashion always dresses the same. Where is the variety?

    Chanel show looks INCREDIBLE. holy cow. breathtaking. you are so lucky to have been there – but then it's not luck it's hard work. but you know what i mean! *JEALOUS*

    I find the whole scenario rather tacky. The mise en scene does indeed look like a manger or a mall Christmas display–Santa's Enchanted Village. The hayseed/BBC Thomas Hardy rolling around doesn't really work. The clothes are such a self-parody that who but the wives/girlfriends/hookers of Russian oligarchs wears this stuff? It is all Juicy Couture for the fatter wallet.

    offensive and unncessary chanel show if meant to evoke/provoke christianity, and made even more crude by the cavorting bodies in the hay and the ever laughable lagerfeld who looks as if he cannot quite fit into his dior homme jackets recently

    This seems like a Christmas nativity scene. The last picture most strongly suggest this.

    Gotta say that, in spite of the weight loss, Karl looks awful as usual these days. If you've seen him without those Terminator goggles (for instance in the film Lagerfeld Confidential) you know he is not only human but handsome as well, with very nice eyes. The gloves, oversize collars, and clunky boots just add to the robotic effect. It's a shame that he feels the need to be so encased. Lighten up!

    I like the casual pic of Giovanna Battaglia with her sister Sara, they're always together and both have really funky style in totally different ways!!

    KL has always been a very controversial character…One cannot just simple look at him and move on…he basically stirs up so many emotions and feelings(and maybe prejudices) that basically most people REACT.
    Yes, it is always "Hate him" or "Genious" or "His clothes this…or that…"
    One cannot just simply be indifferent!

    Love him!

    Is it just me or is that Lily Allen? Genius! Music+Fashion . What can get better?

    oh, it's completely ethereal.

    exactly what you want from fashion these days, something that transcends the current reality.

    Wow, what is this?? Super interesting. Maybe I actualy need to get some more information about this Chanels collection, because the set looks so awesome!

    Hi, there is also a post about Chanel SS10 on Maison Chaplin, check it out! <3 Lily Allen @ RioJaneiro by Mario Testino, Hedi Slimane

    I like new theme away from the usual strong and bold theme like the Carousel (I believe that was last year?), to a manger/new beginning theme. Its very nice indeed, the models can frolick and have fun :). Shows the durability of the collection pieces.

    Oh man, I wish I could've been there! Wonderful shot of Miss Lily.

    Maybe the set looked better in real life, in the pictures it looks like the set of a high school drama production.

    The stage set reminds me of the poor people in France back in the 18th century, when Marie Antoinette was rumored to say " Let them eat cake!". Although its totally not poverty, it's freakin' Coco Chanel!

    Reminds of Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast a la Karl.

    unnecessary religious overtones, it seems. quickest way to lose an audience is to attach to a product a religious or political message. I would have traded a ticket to the show for a brioche. Honestly.

    Weird show. suggests Chanel is in danger of overexposure. As an earlier poster said… Juicy Couture for the fatter wallet… a look that's getting tacky & tired & ready to be retired.

    Oh my goodness, Lily Allen! That show looks incredible :) I loved Garance's post as well…and I love how you have started to link to her blog. I was reading both of you separately before you got together, I think it's so cute now that there's a connection!
    Oh, Chanel is the ultimate!

    Karl karl karl he is amazing and never ever ceases to surprise me each season. I want to pick at his brain.

    Sorry, but I just didn't get it. Just what I don't want to see. Models walking around with dirty, bare feet.
    It's time for Karl to retire and Alber from Lanvin to take over.
