Cue the quilted handbags, black tweed and monochrome. It's time for the Chanel Spring 2011 RTW collection at the Grand Palais in Paris. Where else? The catwalk floor, adorned with swirly black and white detail amongst three water displays, immitated the beauty of Versailles. Lily Allen, Keira Knightley, Anna Wintour, Vanessa Paradis, Claudia Schiffer and Rachel Bilson were amongst those who attended, as well as the original Chanel muse Ines de la Fressange, who so elegantly glided along the catwalk alongside the genius himself, Karl Lagerfeld. The cutest addition to the show was the 2 year-old son of model Brad Kroenig, who was wearing the same white tweed and triple denim combo as his father, clung onto his hand, whilst models in cream and gold tweed hot pants stomped about the stage in wedged sandals.

Oh, wow. Karl never fails to let me down; he really does put on a show. I'm loving the contrast of the ladylike silhouettes with the clumpiness of the footwear and the beautifully flawless complexions. On my wish list are the black strappy wedged sandals, grey jacket and white ruffled cocktail dress. I'm now longing for the spring more than ever...

What do you think of the collection?

and the best of all, Sasha Pivovarova...
