The 2012 Resort season is off! Karl Lagerfeld showed a strong, highly commercial collection of monochromatics, pastel tweeds and bathing attire at Chanel (sidenote: I recognize the absence of a literal red carpet here but Gravel Walkway Rundown didn’t get the point across). You can check out the full collection, marvel at 46-year-old supe Kristen McMenamy looking magnificent in our coverage from yesterday and in the following gallery see out what famous attendees (like Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson and Alexa Chung) wore to watch the show.
