Lagerfeld enlisted the talents of British model and actress Cara Delevingne to show off a couple of designs in his Spring/Summer 2014 collection as well, as he rolled out a rather romantic collection with a good measure of silver glitz…

As for this Chanel offering, expect a subtle color palette of pale to medium pinks, white, silver, multicolor iridescent metallics and black, with a good selection of gowns and the quintessential Chanel suits, which in this collection are accessorized with silver fannypacks (remember those?), elbowpads and kneepads!

Coming out to greet the crowd flanked by Cara Delevingne and godson Hudson Kroenig, Karl Lagerfeld himself looked very elegant in his grey, black and white ensemble, accessorized with a silver/pewter-tone brooch as a tietack and a garland of grey, black and white beads.

Karl’s godson Hudson too looked adorable, charming the crowd in his pearly white suit with the mandarin collar, his sandy tresses down to his shoulders. And that gauzy gown on Cara Delevingne wasn’t bad either…

Attending the Chanel show in style were actress Laura Bailey, French singer Owlle in her cream and black ensemble, Argentinean entrepreneur Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, former Harper's Bazaar Russia editor Miroslava Duma and French fashionista Ines de La Fressange looking incredibly chic in her black, red and white ensemble complete with sharp little visor cap!
