Chanel: Fashion Week Scorecard

The Scene: Inspired by he 1961 film "Last Year at Marienbad," designer Karl Lagerfeld created a double-football-field-size trellised garden with winding stone paths that took up the entire Grand Palais museum. An 80-piece orchestra serenaded an audience of 2,800 that included Claudia Schiffer, Lily Allen, Alexa Chung, Vanessa Paradis, Rachel Bilson, and Lou Doillon. Both the awe-inducing setting and the clothes paraded throughout made for the most spectacular fashion show most of us had ever seen.

The Look: Everything felt familiar but brand-new. The classic Chanel jacket was cut with a swingy A-line and often paired with shorts; pastel tweed dresses sported marabou feathers; a group of jackets, skirts, dresses, and jeans were pocked by cool, haphazardly moth-like holes; ankle-length dresses featuring bright, bold florals on a black background had an arty/vintage feel (a few were shown with straw parasols shaped like hats); ethereal, darkly romantic black dresses, many with marabou trim and raw edges, were the holy grail of eveningwear. Hot model Brad Kroenig and his tow-headed two-year-old son appeared about halfway through the 85 looks in matching white tweed jackets, denim shirts, and jeans.

The Pieces We Want: Any one of the black dresses and an A-line tweed jacket
