From Jared Leto‘s jeans to the next hottest trend in evening attire, the 2014 Fall Chanel Haute Couture Show at the Grand Palais in Paris had no shortage of major moments. We pinpointed three takeaways from the show.
1. Jared Leto Wears Women’s Jeans at Chanel Couture
We have to hand it to Leto—the man’s fashion knows no bounds. He gave a pair of women’s tweed denim skinnies (from the Chanel pre-fall 2014 collection) a cavalier spin by teaming them with a graphic tee, a chambray shirt and cowboy boots, complete with his signature ombre strands, too-cool aviators, and facial scruff. We’re calling it: Rocker couture du jour.
2. Dresses Over Shorts Are the Next Big Thing
Thanks to Lagerfeld’s say-so, dress-and-pant combos (or in this case, shorts) are officially in. A parade of zippy A-line dresses and coatdresses were layered over coordinating shorts (that had us reminiscing of biker shorts in their heyday). And they weren’t isolated instances, either—the majority of the collection’s 70 looks were rendered in rich jacquard, tweed, or sprinkled with embellishments.
Just two days prior at the Atelier Versace fall/winter 2014 show, Donatella layered gowns over one-leg pants and even fashioned a new silhouette when she fused gowns and pants. You heard it here first—dresses-and-pants are all the rage.
3. Kendall Jenner Makes Her Couture Debut
The younger half-sister to the Kardashian clan had a successful run earlier this year when she landed coveted spots in the fall/winter 2014 line-up of prestigious shows (including the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and Chanel). And she’s back in business, having booked the ultimate gig at Chanel Haute Couture. Jenner walked the show outfitted in a feathery plaid number, topped with a punky spiked ‘do, but not before she ‘grammed the moment and captioned it “birdies backstage #Chanel Couture.”
