One of the biggest events in the fashion calendar, the Chanel Metiers d'Art show took place yesterday in Dallas, Texas and naturally Grazia was there to witness the unveiling of Karl Lagerfeld's latest collection. And where there's a whiff of a high fashion moment you're guaranteed to find glossy posse Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne, Derek Blasberg and Harley Viera Newton in the mix. Rubbing shoulders with new Chanel girl Kristen Stewart, the quartet got to work taking photos of themselves against the backdrop of Lagerfeld's elaborate hay-strewn, rodeo-ready runway.
Chanel may have been hosting an All American adventure, but Brit Fash Pack-ers Poppy and Alexa ruled in the style stakes, embracing the Wild Wild West theme with cowgirl hats, prairie shirts and knee-high boots. Alexa took the barn dance one step further by hopping barefoot onto the back of a bucking bronco and taking up the challenge of riding the mechanical beast. Luckily Poppy was on hand to film the Fuse News presenter's cattle-ranching moment.

Poppy also showed off her wild side by getting behind the wheel of a vintage car and giving her pals a lift. She tweeted, "DRIVE THRU and I'm driving (which is ace/scary)." The model wore a denim chambray shirt and her hair in pigtails for dinner with Texas Ranger Derek Blasberg, who revealed his 'giddy up' shirt on Instagram. Following the show he admitted that his choice of trousers was a fashion faux pas: "Now I know why cowboys never wore white jeans."
Our favourite moment had to be clocking Vogue's André Leon Talley texting from the front seat of his automobile with Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld in the back seat. The best drive-in crew, EVER.
