WATCH Alice Dellal, Sarah Jessica Parker And Clemence Poesy at Chanel's Tokyo Celebrations

27 March 2012

It seems like only yesterday we were bringing you the delicious inside scoop from Chanel's super-fabulous four-day soiree in Tokyo (thanks to our very own style director, Paula Reed). Didn't you read all about it, sigh and really wish you'd been there? Well, now we've got a sneaky peek inside the exhibition, couture show AND hip after party thanks to an access-all-areas video. How cool is that? And with so much going on in fashion's new favourite city, with so much to see and so many stylish types schmoozing with Karl, we thought it only fair to summarise our top moments from the trip to accompany the video...

1 Cherry blossom! Causing such excitement amongst the fash pack when spotted in Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden that Clemence Poesy just had to run into the blooms to pose. Look, it's picture perfect.

2 Marvelling at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld’s ability to style up a woman's jacket in his picture at The Little Black Jacket exhibition (you can check it out online - alongside a whole host of other luminaries - or in the new book, out soon) and still look cool. Props!

3 At the after party at Tokyo’s famed Park Hyatt Hotel, Monsieur Lagerfeld told us he'd like to have seen more of the incredible city. And despite being tired, he managed to out-party half the hip young things and was among the last to leave.

4 Chivalry is still alive. A gallant gentleman saved SJP from her wardrobe malfunction by covering her ripped dress with his jacket at the Chanel Couture show. Bravo.

5 Azaelia Banks' blistering set to a warehouse crammed with revellers (Lindsey Wixson was spotted on the floor and Cara Delevigne was bouncing up and down stage-side), protected from the lashing rain by the thinnest of plastic curtains. How very Blade Runner chic...

For more Chanelegance, we've just heard that a 'Digital Exhibition' of all the images from the Little Black Jacket book can be seen online - squee! You can clap eyes on them here. And don't forget to check out the gorgeous video below...
