If I didn't know better, I would think Karl read my post about Little House on the Prairie coming to broadway. The king of RTW flung open the barn doors- literally at the grand palais in Paris yesterday for a roll in the hay - CHANEL Style.
Laura Ingalls would be green with envy if Nellie Olson showed up in any of the gorgeous jackets and skirts that roostered around the runway. There was hay on the floor and in the hair as Karl gave a wink and a nod to the age old image of what goes on in the hay loft! Who can forget the classic scene in Mommie Dearest when Christina is off to college and trying to sew some wild oats (sorry, couldn't resist). She was getting hot and heavy with a hunk in the stables when her rival flung open the door and uttered that famous line "Oh. I'm gonna TELL!".. and she did! Cut to the choking scene!
Anyway, back in Paris - Minnie Pearl wasn't there, but Rihanna and Prince were! Thank Karl for bringing some lighthearted humor back to the fashion scene this season. Lagerfeld always has a new trick up his sleeve for the setting of the most important show in Paris fashion week. Although the runway usually has a theme based on one of the iconic CHANEL symbols - I guess Karl was feeling country! Tweed, Pearls, Hay! One question...Where was Dolly Parton??
