FKA Twigs, Penelope Cruz and Zoe Saldana at the Chanel Fashion Show in Paris
Three very different lady stars took three very different approaches to the wearing of Chanel at the Chanel Fall 2023 show in Paris. We suppose you could look at these three ensembles and come away thinking that they’re a testament to how broad and flexible the brand’s aesthetic has become, but… well, they’d have to be good ensembles for that to be true.
Ooof. While we expect her style to be a lot – and really wouldn’t have it any other way – this is all just one big cacophony of fashion. None of it is given the space to breathe. That coat could be stunning if it wasn’t fighting with literally every other element of the look, including the bag. She’s over-Chanel’d it.
This is generally how she tends to wear her contractually obligated Chanels. She goes for flattering, surprisingly girly looks and she has a preference for tweeds used in unexpected ways. We don’t much love the shape of the skirt or the use of marabou feathers, but it’s not terrible. It helps tremendously that she kept the styling simple.
Zoe evidently took one look at the offerings and said “I’ll carry a bag.” Smart lady.
