A few minutes before the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2020/21 Ready-to-Wear runway show, the photographers Inez & Vinoodh took a series of portraits of ten celebrities present at the Grand Palais. CHANEL ambassadresses and actresses Margaret Qualley and Anna Mouglalis, actresses Emily Beecham and Valerie Pachner, actor Arnaud Valois, directors Mati Diop and Lukas Dhont, singers Janelle Monáe and Angèle as well as musician Sébastien Tellier all posed in front of their camera, in a pop-up studio installed at the Grand Palais for the occasion.

We entered into the Grand Palais among meandering tiers of seats that that were an extension of @chanelofficial's iconic black and white. This was a more grown up collection, showing creative director @virginieviard's confidence. There were athletic elements with clip down pants made lux with Chanel gold buttons. The house codes of tweed and strong black and white appeared in sexy split skirts and frayed finishes that were almost fur like, finished with pattern tights with the brand logo, and equestrian references with riding hats and fold down riding boots. A theme of female comradery came through as models walked side by side, at times chatting nonchalantly. Was this Puss in Boots with a touch of French je ne sais quoi that is so #chanel?
