When Karl Largefeld and Carine Roitfeld are behind an event, everyone in fashion shows up looking as effortlessly chic as possible.
A veritable constellation of stars, from models to actors, musicians and beyond, convened Wednesday night to celebrate the opening of Chanel’s Little Black Jacket Exhibit.
The exhibit, which already touched down in Tokyo, features photos from the book of the same name, in which Carine Roitfeld styled and Karl Lagerfeld photographed models, muses and celebrities wearing Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. For the New York exhibit, the photos (113 of them) are displayed in black and white covering one enormous wall, and blown up in color on the opposite one. So basically everywhere you turn, there’s a compelling, gorgeous photograph of some beautiful famous person wearing a Chanel jacket in way you never expected. It’s impossible not to play pick your favorite (Uma Thurman, Anna Wintour, and Sofia Coppola were among mine). A special room downstairs plays a video of Yoko Ono dancing in her LBJ. The exhibit will be open at 18 Wooster St. in Soho from June 8 through the 15th. So give your wallet a break on your next Soho shopping trip and stop by.
