Chanel Haute Couture: Spring Summer 2010

Hilary Alexander of The Telegraph went backstage and then to the front row before the Spring 2010 Haute Couture Chanel show in Paris. She chatted with Karl Lagerfeld about his inspiration for the collection, with Anna Wintour about how retail is doing, with Alexa Chung about her clogs (horribly uncomfortable from all accounts) and with Amber Rose and Kanye West. Amber was wearing a full length knit Chanel gown which featured a hood. But enough about that. (In fact, we hope we never see or hear of such a thing again in this century.)

The show's inspiration was "neon baroque" but the color palette was muted, with lots of silver, white, cream and palest pink. There was no gold whatsoever in the collection, not even in the buttons. The models wore teased high hair straight out of the court of Marie Antoinette, with the addition of grey streaks and fabric embellishments. The models wore Rougee Allure Lipstick in Genial, which will be available in the Chanel Summer 2010 makeup collection and Le Vernis Nail Colour in Silver. We love silver, but we think Karl got a little carried away by the end of the show with the groom wearing a silver lame suit. Take a look:
