Chanel's Little Black Jacket

How gorgeous are these photos! They're from the Chanel Little Black Jacket exhibit I went to over the weekend at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea. This exhibit trumpeted all the fashion at museums I've seen before because it was so accessible and relevant. Karl Lagerfeld is not only a Chanel's designer; he's also a renowned photographer and actually shot all of these photos for the exhibit. It was so cool to see how each celebrity and model chose to wear the jacket in their own way to really accentuate their individual style. The message is that this iconic little black jacket can be worn by one and all, even after all these years (the jacket was first created by Coco Chanel more than 60 years ago). My favourite was Vanessa Paradis, second to last one down. The parasol, big, sexy hair, slit up the leg and skinny black tie with the white ensemble are so timeless and perfectly Parisian. And of course I loved SJP (fifth one down) for her fabulous crown and cropped jacket, which so remind me of  something Carrie would  wear on Sex and the City! Overall it was so worth it and I highly recommend visiting if you're in London, especially because it's free. The exhibit runs through 28 October. Enjoy!
