Last season at Paris Fashion Week, Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld took four of the world's most beautiful people, dressed them in yeti suits, and had them parade around an iceberg imported from Sweden. And yet he still might have managed to top himself this time around with a runway set based on the gardens at Versailles and an adorable mini-model—Brad Koenig's toddler son—dressed in a cream and black Chanel jacket.
After the show, Vogue UK's online editor Tweeted that she didn't really want to see any other designers' work—Chanel had been too good. And Cathy Horyn's Twitter review included the word "Fabulous" and an exclamation point. Our sister site Racked National has more photos and details, of course.
