cruise control

051508_03 >> Buzz around cruise shows may be a new thing, but as Karl Lagerfeld prepares to debut the Chanel resort collection in Miami later today, rumors are running rampant — Naomi Campbell walking the runway?!

Tonight's show will feature 60 looks — and it looks like at least one of those looks will feature "the Anna Wintour shoulder."  When Karl was giving an interview about the cruise collection, he was interrupted by the arrival of Iekeliene Stange in a black and peach satin dress, which he pointed out featured "the Anna Wintour shoulder — it is like the things she had at the Met.  It was invented for her."

In case enhanced shoulders aren't enough show for you, the presentation is rumored to end with 18 synchronized swimmers, 8 of which are in Lagerfeld-designed swimsuits emblazoned with a letter.  After a pool performance, they will spell out Chanel as a finale, as a nod to The Raleigh Hotel venue, which hosted several Esther Williams movies.
