French Fashion in Italy...

Oooooh la la... Karl Lagerfeld is such a dear... he was just here in Venice last month showing off the Chanel 2010 Cruise Collection... and when he found out that Petunia and Fifi missed the show... he agreed to do it all over again for US... soooooo here I give you our fashion show host and his collection...

A little video of the event... see if you see yourself in the crowd...

And some still shots... love this shade of PINK...

Ooooh a handsome one... pretty romantic blush of PINK blouse...
I think this going to be my beach cover up this summer...

A perfect outfit for traveling... and luggage to match...



I'm thinking this hair and make up might be FUN...

Wave goodbye to the models...

Char said...

that make-up scares me

Paul Anater said...

Ooooh! Please tell me you two are going to Rome. Please!

Callie Grayson said...

oh so perfect!
i actually liked their makeup... kinda 20's hair and 90's goth rock with pretty dresses.

Mrs. Petrie said...

I thought the models looked very post-modern flapper. What a fun fashion show, outside, near the water. Very Gatsby. Thank you for hosting!

Moonspinner said...

Sooo nice of Karl, great show! xx

Slices of Beauty... said...

All cute, lovely selection!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Oh, yes, I agree - the post-modern flapper look.

Regina said...

Nice captures of the cat walk. I cant wait to see more of the Italian adventure.

Suzy said...

Love the fasion, just can't see a mother of 5 wearing that to the next PTA meeting....

Couture Carrie said...

LuLo Designs/Blue Eyed Tango said...

Very fashionable! I like the beach cover up the best with the stripes peeking out! The models look like mannequins coming to life...well sort of...very interesting look. Thanks for hosting Fashionable Friday! Luanne

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

What a fun show! Loved some of the dresses especially. Very Gatsby, as Mrs. Petrie said.

Here's to a fabulous and fashionable weekend! :-)

maidenshade said...

Fifi, this is NOT a comment meant to reflect your lovely post at all. You do wonderful, elegant and elequent stuff here - it is entertaining and so well done. So please, pardon me for this if it offends in the least.

I guess it was bound to happen that vampire-mania would show up on "the runway" so to speak...

Very goth and dark, no? I'm not one to be outwardly negative, I swear - but I couldn't get past the makeup, it overshadowed the fashion IMHO.

Mr. L., this did not engage me positively, nor inspire joy I'm afraid. All I saw were injured eyes - that said, it did move me to speak, so reaction gotten is better than apathy.

hmmm. Anyone else agree?

All-American Belle said...

Fifi, I have been loving your travels through Italy lately! It is one of my favorite places in the world and you are bringing back great memories for me :)

Joyce said...

A wonderful fashion show. To be so young to wear the outfits....

I'm guest posting on Tonya's blog while she actually in Italy. Lucky girl!!
Have a golden weekend my friend! xoxo

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...
