Earlier this month, celebrities and fashionistas alike traveled to Paris Fashion Week expecting Chanel to produce yet another stylish spectacle. Time and time again, the Chanel fashion shows in Paris have become a must-see.
However nothing to this day can compare to the Chanel summer/spring 2012 fashion show in Paris. The Grand Palais became a white underwater kingdom with shells, coral and, of course, thousands of pearls. To close the show, Karl Lagerfeld asked his then muse du jour, Florence Welch, to serenade his many friends as his designs paraded down the runway.
That day, a fashion mermaid was born. Watch the singer come out of her shell and sing her lungs in the video above. The song? “What the Water Gave Me,” obviously.
