Chanel makes supermarket shopping glamorous

The 2014 Autumn/Winter Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week showcased crop tops, glam sneakers, coloured fur and track pants in, of all places, a brightly lit supermarket.

Keira Knightley, actress and face of Coco Mademoiselle perfume, arrived wearing fresh-off-the-runway Chanel which showcased an alarmingly small waistline.

Another show-stopping attendee was popstar Rihanna, who wore head-to-toe pastel purple and frolicked with her model best friend Cara Delevigne post-show. The songstress also showed off a svelte waist suggesting that maybe it is the expertise of Lagerfeld’s tailoring, rather than weight loss, that’s to blame for the slender stars.
