We've just arrived at the Grand Palais for - yep - the Chanel show. Let's go backstage...

This morning we are reporting live from Chanel's Spring Summer 2014 catwalk presentation at Paris Fashion Week. As well as interviewing the Chanel beauty team - including the one and only Peter Philips who is working on the models backstage (including a glowing Miranda Kerr slinking around in a wrap dress and flats, as well as Edie Campbell and Sam Rollinson) - and capturing all the front row action on the lead up to the big reveal of the brand's latest collection, we're going to be chatting to KARL LAGERFELD after the show with an exclusive video coming to Grazia Daily tomorrow.

You won't have to wait that long however, as we'll be capturing all the action over the next hour on this live blog - so remember to hit refresh to keep up to date.

So what do we know so far? Well there's the mysterious invitation, which arrived in our inboxes last week. Alongside the iconic Chanel stamp is the word 'Art' written in fancy red writing and, umm, that's it.

[Chanel Spring Summer 2014 invite]

Thia season the Chanel show was transformed into an art gallery and Karl Lagerfeld created a selection of paintings especially for the occasion. Models even have artwork painted on their faces. It's no secret that Monsieur Lagerfeld is a huge art fan, often popping up at the Art Basel festival better known as 'the Olympics of the Art World'. BUT, in true outspoken style, he's dismissed the notion that fashion is art. Speaking to the Telegraph, the designer said, "I am against museums and exhibitions in fashion. One woman said to me — ‘In my world, the world of art’ — so I said: ‘Oh, don’t you make dresses anymore?’ A thin smile and then: ‘If you call yourself an artist, then you are second-rate.’”

Stay tuned as Grazia Daily bring you an all-round view of the happenings as part of Fashion Week 360.
