Congratulations go to Australian Caitlin Lomax who has debuted big time here in Paris, walking the Chanel Haute Couture show for Karl Lagerfeld. Held at the Grand Palais in a mock-Place Vendome set (complete with street lanterns and tower), the show was heavy on classic Chanel black and white suiting, with a little fuchsia thrown in for good measure. Other Antipodean-walkers included Julia Nobis, RAFW breakout star Rose Smith, and the complete newbie Claire Collins, who told me yesterday that – besides taking part in a few hair parades – she had never walked a fashion show before. Chanel Haute Couture ain't a bad place to start. Kiwi Emily Baker was unable to walk the show due to Paris modelling laws, which state that no model under 18 is allowed to work past 10:00pm; and there was no sign of Chanel regular Abbey Lee Kershaw either. All the same, GO THE ANTIPODEANS!
I LIKE YOU!
