Cruisin with Karl

Fashion News
Chanel Resort 2011 Runway Show

Karl Lagerfeld—designer, director, master of film and fashion—kicked of the Cannes Film Festival last week with his Resort Collection for Chanel. While last year’s collection was presented in Saint Tropez, this year Lagerfeld chose another French Riviera locale, Antibes, just a few hours down the coast.

And where else but the posher than posh Hotel du Cap to showcase his 73-piece collection? The looks varied from bright yellow suits to floral dresses and little black and white mod numbers, some topped with Coco Chanel’s famously fashionable little hats. The models sparkled as they walked the runway, dripping in Chanel Haute Joaillerie, to which Lagerfeld remarked, “This is about the women of Cannes, women who mix bathing suits with real pearls and diamonds, After all, you can't wear fakes into the water.”

Since it was the start of Cannes, Lagerfeld played up to the cinephiles as well by closing at the show with one of his own films. And you can be sure there were as many Chanel outfits watching the show as there were on the catwalk. Here’s a sampling of some of our favorite friends of Karl:
