Chanel FW12/13 Haute Couture Runway Gallery

Take a first look at the show here!

Chanel couture shows are always the best (it's a universal fact, really), and this year was no exception to that expectation. Karl Lagerfeld delivered on the whimsy and decadence for which this (entirely inappropriate to real life situations) genre of dressing is known for. It's escapism at its finest, and god, we love to look at it.

The presentation was held at the Grand Palais on Tuesday, with pastel macaroons and fresh floral arrangements appealing to all of our girly daydreams. There was a 'new vintage' theme to collection, so pieces from Chanel's archives were adapted. For example, the iconic tweed suit was done this time with glittering thread finely woven through it, giving off a subtle nod to the metallic trend.

The standout gown was definitely the one that closed the show, worn by none other than Oyster #95 cover star Lindsey Wixson. A cloud of tulle, feathers and pearls, it apparently took over 3,000 hours to craft, and could surely melt the heart of even the most adamant non-romantic.
