Trust Karl Lagerfeld to reinvent street style by erecting his own street – Boulevard Chanel” – inside the Grand Palais, for models to strut down to, looking as if they’re just going for a stroll in a mix of classic cardigans (as worn by Gisele), bright prints and reinvented tweedy suits.
The finale saw the models taking part in a mock demonstration, carrying banners and placards saying things like”tweed is better than tweet” and “make fashion not war” while Cara and Gisele shouted through megaphones “What do we want? When do we want it?”
Now that’s one fun show!
Later on this summer Cara Delevingne will be the new face of Topshop. The supermodel will appear in the British brand’s A/W 2014 global campaign. Images are not available as of yet however the Vogue cover girl will lead the company’s advertising across print and outdoor, as well as appearing on its in-store graphics. Delevingne – who is a two-time Victoria’s Secret model – has fronted campaigns for British labels including Mulberry and Burberry, as well as international brands from DKNY to Yves Saint Laurent.
Burberry have released their Fall/Winter 2014 campaign.

The collection will be available in stores and online at the end of October, with prices starting at $70 for accessories (approx. £41.50).
Lady of the moment (or year, so it seems) Cara Delevingne finally gave us the conformation we were looking for regarding her travel from model to actress last month. After rumors began to spread in early August, by the end of the month Cara herself was posting instagram snaps with the hashtag #KidsInLove. Among her co stars are Gala Gordon and Sebastian De Souza. The super cool cast were seen yesterday filming in the heart of London’s Soho and reminded us just how excited we are to see Cara on the big screen.
