Alexa Chung, Blake Lively and Diane Kruger proved the perks of being one of Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld’s favourite girls as they attended yet another glamourous soiree thrown by the label in New York last night. Joined by the likes of Elle Fanning and January Jones, the Chanel ambassadors were out to celebrate the Chanel Fine Jewellery 80th anniversary of the Bijoux de Dimants collection, an exhibition curated by the legendary Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel in 1932.
All decked out in Chanel, naturally, the ladies leading the style pack worked some very different looks. Permanent Chanel event fixture Alexa Chung worked her signature brand of cool in an, albeit rather girly, embroidered puff hem dress and sparkling court shoes, while Blake Lively looked Gossip Girl glossy as ever in a shimmering silver and pink silk halter frock. Get your hands out of your pockets Blake, we want another look at that wedding rock!
Diane Kruger went for simple but statement in a blue sequin column bandeau dress, given a Kruger styling spin with a clashing yellow satin clutch, while Elle Fanning, who made her first ever fashion show appearance at Chanel’s Haute Couture catwalk last year, perfected the label’s monochrome style in a boy-meets-girl mix of a collared velvet dress and quirky pork pie hat. Is Ms Fanning vying for a place in the Chanel girl hall of fame we wonder? GG
