Couture Fashion Week: See Karl Lagerfeld And Erin Wasson Preparing For The Chanel Show

02 July 2013 by

This morning we stepped into a dusty, run down theatre complete with crumbling masonry and rows of wooden seats, to watch Karl Lagerfeld's latest offering for Chanel. The worn curtains pulled back to reveal his collection of embroidered suits and full ballerina skirts. It is all about proportion in this Chanel collection. Rihanna was on the front row drowning in Chanel pearls and Kristen Stewart had a Karl-over for the show, wearing a monochrome suit and fingerless gloves, with her hair pulled into a slick pony.

But there was also a starry model line up as Erin Wasson closed the show in a white coat and frothy, delicate wedding gown - it was a quite the surprise as these days she rarely steps onto the catwalk. But that's not all... we can reveal that Erin is also starring in the Chanel press kit. We've got an exclusive first look at these behind the scenes images of the making of the press kit with the lovely Erin. As you would expect she looks FIERCE.

In the behind the scenes snaps you can see Karl directing Erin on set and the model having her makeup touched up. Our fave picture has to be the image of her trying on a strapless shimmery dress at a fitting - bea-u-ti-ful.

As for the actual press kit images, Erin models the embroidered suits, layered billowing dresses and rectangular hats worn at the back of the head which were all shown this morning. The dominant slate and dove grey colour palette is mirrored in the images which are all in stormy black and white.

Erin Wasson in the Chanel Couture Autumn Winter 2013 show

Just like the models in the show, Erin has her hair fixed into a strong quiff updo with a statement Cara brow - the look is future Chanel warrior. As for the accessories in the shoot it's all about the statement hat, over the knee boots and stacked midi rings. Erin is the perfect girl to star in the stormy shots... welcome back Ms Wasson.
