Chanel Couture 2008 or Kissing Up To Anna Wintour

Susan Tabac at Chic in Paris is one of, if not the best, fashion reporter on the Web. It's always worthwhile to read her insightful commentary on fashion, especially as we fantasize about having her glamorous life!

The models all wore wigs cut to resemble Anna Wintour’s famous bob, and pumps with Lucite heels that gave the impression of walking on tip-toe. This is Couture at its most serious, but that isn’t to say it lacked heart; and if these are the sorts of ensembles we will be wearing in the future as we cruise around in hover cars, then it is certainly something to look forward to indeed.

I'm not to proud to admit that Karl Lagerfeld is a genius. Not necessarily as a visionary designer, but as a marketing genius. He knows whose ass to kiss and when to get the press that he needs to promote his product. As if it is serendipity that his models are all sporting Anna Wintour's signature bob.

I can almost imagine him saying 'But non, we must have zee models resemble zee ANNA"

Note to Karl Lagerfeld: Putting your couture models in Anna Wintour bobs doesn't make your clothes any less hideous.
