Part one: rows of vintage American convertibles parked for a movie night, ice cream, popcorn stands, cherry cocktails…The set was ready for a “drive-in” screening of the short film The Return, written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld, in Fair Park’s Automobile Building. Lagerfeld, who dedicated movie to Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel and the return to her couture house in mid-fifties, arrived with Anne Wintour and Andre Leon.
Part two: Western inspired Chanel runway show, titled ‘Paris – Dallas’. Karl Lagerleld’s show packed with celebrities was for the first time in the United States.
Who got the front row seat? From Dakota Fanning, Kristen Stewart, Miroslava Duma, Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevigne, Lauren Hutton, Giovanna Bataglia, Caroline Siber, Leigh Lezark to Lilly Collins, and of course Anna Wintour. A Hollywood ‘entourage’ ranging from the new generation starlets to true fashion industry icons, that one can only wish for!
Part three: after party! It got ‘Western-wild’, with bull-riding, karaoke and Hot Chip performance…Regardless of the cold night outside and snow on the ground, the partiers turned the heat up and showed the best of texan fun!
