Rihanna, Kristen Stewart and Clemence Posey channel monochrome for the Chanel Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2013 show
At the Chanel Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2013 show fashion muses Rihanna, Kristen Stewart, Clemence Posey and Vanessa Paradis all showed their support for Karl Lagerfeld’s new collection by dressing in the French fashion houses' signature monochrome style.
Kristen Stewart wowed the photographers and fashion world as she attended in a pair of black leather shorts teaming them with a white double breasted jacket from Chanel’s Resort 2014 collection. Polishing off her look the actress added black Jean-Michel Cazabat Evangelina pumps and fingerless leather gloves to help complete her ensemble.
Rihanna did not fail to impress in the style stakes either, making a strong statement by wearing a full length white Chanel cardigan - again from the Resort 2014 collection. She wore the plunging piece with an array of pearls and a strong slip of the leg to show off her cream pumps with a black toe cap, also from the same collection.
However, French actress Clemence Posey chose not to follow suit opting for a classic boucle skirt suit from the Chanel Spring Summer 2013 collection instead (inspired by classic tuxedo cuts); a not too dissimilar boucle jacket with a drop waist was also seen on the runway for the new collection, proving once again that Clemence is ahead of the trends.
Not to be outdone by her younger muses fashion icon and Chanel ambassador, Vanessa Paradis, also put her best fashion foot forward dressing in another monochrome look. Wearing black leather trouser with a white poets blouse the French actress, who was the face of the fragrance Coco in 1992 and Rouge Coco in 2010, looked effortlessly chic.
Karl Lagerfeld choose to present Chanel’s Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2013 collection at the Grand Palais in Paris and as expected this was no ordinary show. Made to look like a bombed theatre with rubble adorning the catwalk, Karl gave onlookers a performance as opposed to just another runway collection.
