Chanel's highly anticipated S/S/11 show took place in Paris today, and whilst the show itself was another monochrome masterpiece that only the legendary Karl Lagerfield could concieve, off the catwalk celebrity guests Lily Allen and Keira Knightly made the style statements that grabbed the headlines.

Both Allen and Knightly are celebs who, in the past, have been criticised by the fashion media for their less-than-conventional approaches to fashion. Whilst both girls never fail to look fabulous at red carpet events, away from media glare Lily is berated for her 'chav chic' styling, whilst Keira's casual, laid-back approach to fashion has been branded sloppy.
However, both girls were polished to perfection at the Chanel show today, Lily demonstrating exactly how to do maternity chic in structural chanel boucle wool jacket and shift, whilst Keira channeled the Bright Young Things in a drop-waisted twenties inspired dress that complemented her sleek bob perfectly.

Parisian style may be considered to be the epitome of good taste, but Allen and Knightley prove us Brit girls certainly know how to rock the look.

  1. K's hair is a visual treat. (L.A's was not)

    Perhaps the black was too harsh for Keira?

    I'm over the whole the girlines of Britain waving our over-used flag. It's really just the LDN stylists and more-money-than-sense publicists who mould them into 'refined with a twist of acidic radical'.

    I do hope Karly-boy goes through with tossing out the 15 year old twigs we're exposed to on the catwalk. I want to BE inspired, shocked and tantalised.
