When Chanel calls, FabSugar goes running. Yesterday, the team headed to Paris to attend the Chanel show at the Grand Palais. From the white, black, and silver décor to the front-row stars and Karl, it was a thoroughly French — and completely amazing — affair. Experience Chanel through Fab's eyes:
Paris Fashion Week just closed its last show, and if the makeup and hair I've seen on display in the last few days are any indication, we're gearing up for an absolutely gorgeous 2011. The catwalks were lavish with jewel box tones, soft, glossy hair, and patent shine. There's no need to wait six months to jump on these looks, so go on — step into Paris in the springtime.
Starting in NYC, we've hopped from London to Milan, and finally landed in Paris to wrap a month's worth of Fashion Week in the world's most stylish cities. As a quick detour from all the amazing looks to inspire through the Spring, we've shifted our focus from the runway to the fashionable packs that took front rows throughout. Click through to get a dose of the Fab celebrity style that caught our attention in NYC, London town, and beyond.
The adorable and smiley Rachel Bilson was seated front and center at the Chanel Fashion Show today as she walked arm in arm with her buddy Jill Schwartz, wife of The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz. Rachel was sweet enough to let me bend her ear for a few moments (when I introduced myself she said, "I love PopSugar!") in between getting her photo taken. I really enjoyed speaking with her about Chanel, makeup, and fashion! To find out what she had to say, and to see more photos, read more.
We spotted Shu Pei Qin on Paris Fashion Week day six donning a charcoal riding coat with skinny ankle-length trousers, cream mushroom-printed blouse by Topshop, and studded Miu Miu loafers. Try out this equestrian-inspired ensemble with the exact pair of Miu Miu loafers along with similar picks from Undercover, Old Navy, and Clements Ribeiro.

Before Alexander McQueen passed away, he was able to finish his genius pre-Fall 2010 collection and nearly completed the Fall line. Successor and right-hand woman Sarah Burton stepped in for Resort 2011, but here is her first Spring collection for the house. It's intricate, elaborate, grandiose — McQueen would be proud.
