Karl Lagerfeld is pitching a lifetime publicity perfect game, and when that comes to his position atop Chanel, that means periodically wrangling fashion celebs, chic indie actresses and some miscellaneous French girls to show up at parties decked in the brand's wares. On Monday night in New York City, one such occasion came to pass; there were, of course, a bunch of handbags.
Ostensibly, the focus of this party was Baz Luhrmann's new short film for the brand, starring (noted actress?) Gisele Bundchen. The actual purpose of any Chanel party, though, is to remind everyone how fabulous it must be to attend a Chanel party, so mission: accomplished. Check out who attended (and with which bags) below.
There's one very interesting bag from the party that our photo agency didn't snag a picture of, though: an everything bagel with cream cheese, in handbag form, on the arm of actress India Menuez. We've never seen anything like it at previews or Chanel shows, and if you want to check it out, Racked has the photos.
