Shop the Front Row: Chanel's Fall 2012 Haute Couture Show

Tuesday's Chanel Haute Couture presentation in Paris drew a mix of French actresses (Clémence Poésy, Anna Mouglalis) and Francophiles (Sofia Coppola, Diane Kruger). But while the day's A-list guests hail from many different countries, they all looked decidedly Parisian in their Karl Lagerfeld-designed outfits.

Click through to see some of the Chanel couture show's best-dressed attendees. And if you're not quite ready to spend thousands on a wardrobe of interlocking CCs, here are some inspired (read: afforadable) alternatives. (Although we do suggest investing in a quilted chain bag immediately—you'll have it forever!)
