Today, Chanel took over Paris' Grand Palais for its Fall 2017 couture show. From the Parisian-inspired set to Karl Lagerfeld receiving a very special honor, here's everything to know from the show.
1) The set was inspired by the iconic fashion house's home-base: Paris. Models walked underneath a giant Eiffel Tower replica that was created to overarch the runway.

2) The front row was especially star-studded this season. Attendees included Pharrell Williams, Julianne Moore, Tilda Swinton, Katy Perry, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rowan Blanchard, Cara Delevingne, Kristen Stewart and more.
Gabrielle Chanel became known for making clothing and accessories that epitomized the modern day woman, as they were not only elegant, but also functional. Over the past 30 years Karl Lagerfeld has continued to recreate pieces that achieve this quality, and the launch of Chanel's 'Gabrielle' bag collection does exactly this.
Marking the brand's first major bag collection since 'The Boy' in 2011, the collection was introduced during the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear runway show, and is modeled after the binocular cases men used to wear over the shoulder at the racecourse.
