What the Internet Tells Us About Last Night's Chanel Runway Show in NYC


Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Last night, Karl Lagerfeld brought a taste of Central Europe to the Upper East Side when he recreated the "balls-to-the-wall decadent" Chanel Métiers d'Art show at the Park Avenue Armory. Since Racked's invitation was most certainly lost in the mail—that still happens these days, right?—we turned to the Internet to glean the most important details from the show that brought out the likes of Dakota Johnson, Julianne Moore (in light-up shoes, no less), and Beyoncé.

Based on the seating layout, sometimes models could take you by surprise.

Pretzels almost too pretty to eat (but only almost) were served.

The outfit later took to the stage with Cara Delevingne to sing about...something. Chanel, we assume.

Karl did a pretty spot-on Anna impression when Eva Chen showed him Lucky magazine's "summer issue" featuring his little Choupette.

Karl darlings Cara and Kendall Jenner closed the show—unless you count Karl's little friend here as the last model standing.

And of course, Mama Kris wasn't too far away.
