Chanel Métiers d'Art Paris-Salzburg: The Guests
Lily Allen, Cara Delevingne and more
VIP guests arrived in Salzburg on the eve of this year’s Chanel Métiers d'Art show to enjoy a premiere screening of Karl Lagerfeld’s Reincarnation short film which stars Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams. It was an open air occasion allowing attendees to make the most of the beautiful Alpine surroundings. Karl Lagerfeld sported a traditional Austrian jacket accessorised with a scarf to counter the glacial temperatures. Other guests noted the chill factor: “actually, I’m freezing,” admitted actress Rooney Mara who elegantly wore a grey Chanel couture dress with concrete buttons.
Guests were treated to a seven course dinner hosted by Karl Lagerfeld in one of Europe's oldest restaurants, St. Peter Stiftskeller. Traditional Austrian cuisine was on the menu, which featured roasted saddle of venison and pumpkin cream soup. Dinner concluded with Salzburger Nockerl dessert to warm the cockles.
The screening of Reincarnation and the incorporation of traditional Austrian traditions in the evenings event have done everything to pique interest and intrigue surrounding the much anticipated show.
