Chanel via Karl Lagerfield in Dallas for Metiers d' Art Show

Kristen Stewart in Chanel
Elle's Fashion Boudoir Blog
As we reported earlier this year, Karl Lagerfield is currently in Dallas for the Metiers d' Art Show. Guests included Vogue Editor Anna Wintour and Kristen Stewart, the campaign face of Vogue.

Vogue.com reports: 
The show features a Paris-Dallas collection of Texan and native Indian influences. Guests are seated in vintage convertibles in a custom-built drive-through cinema to watch Lagerfeld’s new film ‘The Return’. The film is about Coco Chanel’s comeback collection of 1954, which was only well-received by American media and buyers, in particular the Dallas-based department store Neiman Marcus. The patronage received from Neiman Marcus effectively saved Chanel from closure and was the impetus for Lagerfeld’s choice of Dallas as this year’s M├ętiers D’Art destination. 


Tomorrow, Neiman Marcus will present Anna Wintour with an award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion. The luxury fashion store once presented this award to to Lagerfield in 1957 in Dallas, Texas.
