Karl Lagerfeld takes us inside his Chanel Fall 2016/17 “Front Row Only” Ready to Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week where all 3,000 guests were invited to sit front row. The decor was reminiscent of the salons at 31 Rue Cambon, where Gabrielle Chanel presented her designs.

People complain they can’t see the clothes because they are too far away; this season everyone is front row”  – Karl Lagerfeld.

We loved all the new accessories. Boaters, helmets and riding hats in tweed, felt or leather were fastened by straps adorned with byzantine crosses, pearls or camellias. Models walked down the runway in boots with horizontal lacing or loafers with heels that accentuated a modern attitude.  Witty accessories such as cat cuffs, emoticon jewelry, and bobbin and coat-hanger handbags punctuated the silhouette.

Post show, Karl Lagerfeld told us about the gorgeous beauty look of the show by Tom Pecheux, and why he loves working with the hottest “models of the moment” Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.  Featuring interviews with Chanel ambassadress Willow Smith and music mogul Pharrell Williams.

Stella McCartney talks to us about her new fragrance ‘POP’ and the campaign starring Grimes, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Kenya Kinski-Jones and Amandla Stenberg.

“In the world of beauty, I really want to create something that feels really now, that pops right now.” I was just really excited; I have two young girls, and I have alot of younger friends, and they really inspired me.  The cap is incorporated into the bottle, you can throw it into your bag, it’s a beautiful fresh, vibrant scent.

POP is the third fragrance for McCartney, and this one is aimed at millennials. “I wanted the casting to be young women about to pop who have something to say.  Stella chose girls that are young, modern and  I want the world of beauty for the next generation to be something a bit more that we can identify with.”

The film for POP was directed by Melina Matsoukas and features four very different young girls.  Performance artist Lourdes ‘Lola Leon’, Madonna’s daughter; musician Grimes, actress and campaigner Amandla Stenberg and animal activist Kenya Kinski-Jones.

Kenya told us she loved being in the film and said it was an unforgettable experience and so about now “the spirit of Pop is being in the moment, about being apologetic about who you are.”

Kendall Jenner takes us backstage at Fendi 90th Anniversary Couture show by Karl Lagerfeld at the legendary Trevi Fountain in Rome.

“It’s an amazing, timeless brand, every piece you see you can tell there is love and care put into it” Kendall said before the show. “I just think the brand is just so amazing, every time I get to work with them and I walk in and see the clothing, the shoes, bags and the accessories I’m always in awe”.

Karl Lagerfeld has been Creative Director for Fendi for over 50 years and explained the historic show at the Trevi Fountain was inspired by Danish illustrator Kay Nielsen “there is a kind of fairytale story because the theme of the collection is “Legends and Fairytales” it’s a feeling and a mood”.

The models walked on a plexiglass catwalk across the water with the famous fountains and pools form the 1960’s film, La Dolce Vita. This was the first fashion show to take place at the Italian landmark.

“In 2012 Fendi restored the Trevi Fountain, and we thought could you imagine if we could do a show here” Silvia Fendi explained backstage before the show, “it’s the best way to celebrate 90 years of stories”.
