We got a behind-the-scenes pass to see the Spring Summer 2014 creations come to live and witness the hair and makeup teams in action.

Cara's big sister Poppy was front of house, ready to take her VIP seat, but not before she'd cooed over the incredible art installations that adorned the Grand Palais. Yes, Karl had transformed the catwalk into an art gallery filled with ginormous Chanel bags and fragrance bottles. Genius!
The collection was nothing short of a work of art too. The Chanel suit in raspberry and cornflower, the little black dress with a panel of lace at the waistband and sweet bouncing skirt, and colour card silks in more than a hundred blithe shades made for the loveliest viewing. 'Choupette was happy so everything was okay,' Lagerfeld told us after the show. And if it's good enough for Choupette...
