Posted on

Karl Lagerfeld infused a little Parisian chic into New York Fashion Week, holding the ultimate fashion fête Thursday night to celebrate the opening of the new Chanel Boutique in SoHo, drawing style heavyweights–and many a Chanel muse–including Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson, Liv Tyler and Sarah Jessica Parker. Dressed in a stunning black-and-pink striped dress that she paired with a sparkly jacket, SJP did not disappoint, telling PEOPLE that a girl feels “privileged, lucky, like a pumpkin,” when she slips into something Chanel. Blake Lively, who dined with the Kaiser himself after the party, dazzled in a sparkling purple Chanel dress while close Karl Lagerfeld pal Kruger also got cameras flashing in a ruffled blue-and-black dress from the designer, which she gave her own unique touch to before arriving. “I made it a lot shorter than it originally was,” she told PEOPLE. But she explains that her attendance at the bash goes well beyond loving a party. “I’ve known Karl half my life. He’s my mentor,” she said. “I used to work for Chanel when I was a model. I did the Allure perfume. I did the makeup line. He’s been the most influential person in terms of fashion in my life.” –Gillian Koenig; reporting by Jeffrey Slonim
