Lily-Rose Depp, Rita Ora AND Lily Collins: Who We Hung With At Chanel's Biggest Bash

Lily-Rose Depp, Rita Ora AND Lily Collins: Who We Hung With At Chanel's Biggest Bash

Last night the who’s who of the fashion world descended on London’s Saatchi Gallery to celebrate the launch of Chanel’s 'Mademoiselle Prive' exhibition. And of course we were there too. Here's what's happened...

We seriously didn't recognise the Saatchi Gallery…
It's been transformed from a clinical white-walled contemporary art venue into Coco Chanel's decadent world. Think texturised wallpapers, fluffy carpets you practically sink into and mirrored ceilings all channeling Coco's Rue Cambon apartment that come to life with a free downloadable app. We even spied Julianne Moore showing Vanessa Paradis how to use it. 

There's even two gardens…
The gallery’s minimalist white entrance had been turned into a wild British country garden inspired by the time Coco spent in Scotland, which was created by English landscape designers Harry and David Rich, and of course there's realistic birdsong which we admit was kind of confusing come midnight. Meanwhile, upstairs there's a very chic French garden with some serious box hedge inspiration. It was the place to be last night for a token Instragram shot.

 

 

The series of celebrity portraits practically came to life last night…
The exhibition ends with a series of celebrity portraits shot by Karl Lagerfeld in Mademoiselle Coco’s Paris apartment and showcases her 1932 ‘Bijoux de Diamants’ jewellery collection. Nearly everyone that Karl shot was there last night to see. Yep, we're talking Julianne Moore, Rita Ora, Vanessa Paradis and her daughter Lily-Rose Depp, Jemina Kirke, Alice Dellal, Lily Collins and Rinko Kikuchi. Talk about mega guest list!

 

Lily Collins portrait took place in record breaking speed…
‘The second shot was the one that Karl used,' she explained to us. 'I thought they were testing the light, and he was like “I'm done.”

 

 

 

Karl isn't a fan of Rita Ora's changing hairstyles…
Speaking about her portrait Rita explained why Karl prefers her hair au naturel.  'He is one of the main people that made me rock my short natural hair. He was like: 'It's gorgeous, it's gorgeous what do you need to do?' He makes me feel really sexy.'

 

 

 

 

Cressida Bonas AKA Prince Harry's is she/ isn't she ex-girlfriend rocked head to toe Chanel…

And we loved her look. 'My shoes are super cool. You can't miss them. They're the best bit of my outfit,’ she told us. 

Girls star Jemima Kirke also wore great shoes...
‘My foot hurts so I couldn't wear high heels,' Jemima AKA Jessa from Girls explained. 'I was worried I might have to wear a flat, that doesn't feel very good but then Chanel presented me with a man's dress shoe, like a heavy dress shoe, and it felt great and looks very cool with my very girly skirt.'

Jemima's cousin Alice Dellal (how cool is that) reckons she's quite similar to Coco Chanel…
'We're both Leos and both superstitious. I jump over cracks in the pavement.

Top knots are in...

Poppy Delevigne and her sister Cara both rocked a large top knot. Hello bad hair day solution!

Vanessa Paradis isn't surprised daughter Lily-Rose has followed in her footsteps…
When we asked her she said: 'She does what she wants to do. I was not surprised she has gone into this industry, I was surprised it happened so soon, but not surprised this is what she is doing, she's made for it.'

And Lily-Rose doesn't really take advice from her mum... 
‘My mum (Vanessa Paradis) just gives me the same advice that any other parent would, just do your best,' Lily-Rose explained to us. 'I'm just starting out so I still have a lot to learn. I think you can be told as many things as you want but I think at the end of the day you learn the most when you are actually doing it.'

Karl gave us serious ponytail envy...

When we stood (awkwardly) next to him (and his security guard) during St Vincent's performance we couldn't help but get ponytail envy. It's so neat and so bouncy. We almost asked him his hair tying secret. 

Cara Delevigne really didn't like when everyone wasn't completely silent during her girlfriend St Vincent's live performance…

Mid-set she jumped on stage, took the mic off St Vincent and shouted at the noisy crowd. ‘'Can everyone please just be quiet! For those that want to listen to real music, sssshhhh!' #awkward 

Karl doesn't take #selfies...

After St Vincent's performance, he took out his phone and asked his security guard to take a photo of him, Cara D and St Vincent. After a couple of flash issues, they finally nailed the shot.
