Chanel Goes to the Lions for Fall Couture 2010

King of the jungle, Mr. Karl Lagerfeld, sure knows how to put on a show. At last Tuesday’s Chanel show, models emerged from a pearl, held under the paw of a 40-foot gold lion. The golden beast was said to be an astrological reference to Coco herself. Throughout the show waves of deep purples, chocolate browns, and rich reds took the stage. Calf length skirts were paired with billowy blouses and cropped jackets. A-line dresses and bolero jackets were brought up a notch with some major embroidery and beading. Accessories where kept simple except for large cuff bracelets drenched in beading and chains, paired with ankle boots. Concluding the show prior to Lagerfeld himself was his muse, Batisite Giabiconi, wearing a lion-head mask and suited in a flawless Chanel tuxedo. - Nicole Simone
