Lucky magazine editor-in-chief Eva Chen went behind the scenes at the Chanel fashion show in New York on Tuesday for ET, getting an up-close look at the looks on the stage and in the celebrity-filled audience.
Beyonce was among the stars to come out for the re-creation of the fashion extravaganza that blew everyone away during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. Bey donned a sweater and burgundy mini while carrying a quilted Chanel handbag when she arrived for the show.
Other notable guests included Kris Jenner, Julianne Moore, Dakota Johnson, Vanessa Paradis with 15-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and Pharrell Williams. Pharrell hinted at a future venture with Chanel.
“I’m not at liberty to say but I’m really pumped and excited,” Pharrell said when asked about a possible collaboration with the French label. “I think that Karl [Lagerfeld] has been incredibly generous with these opportunities. I’ve learned a lot.”
Kendall Jenner strutted down the catwalk as a model in the show, which had a refined European flair. During the finale, Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld gave Kendall and Cara Delevingne the distinct honor of ending the show. Eva had the distinct honor of being the only entertainment journalist to have a one-on-one with Karl.
“I’ve known Cara since she was 15, I think,” Karl said. “I was the first to take photos of Cara when she was 15 or something. So for me now she’s very famous, but for me it’s like a little niece.”
