ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Karl Lagerfeld really knows how to put on a show -- not content to follow the fashion week formula of a runway, a dark room and a phalanx of bored-looking models, the creative director of Chanel presented no less than an orchestra, a revolving stage, two curving staircases and over 60 suits and dresses in sorbet shades at his Paris show on Tuesday (January 21). Under the soaring ceiling of the Grand Palais, the rapt audience gathered for Chanel's haute couture Spring/Summer 2014 collection was treated to a fun, frothy and oh-so-chic spectacle as models in sparkly sneakers skipped down the stairs to musical accompaniment. Silhouettes were cinched at the waist, with corset skirts under cropped jackets in creamy pale ivories and lavenders.
