Keira Knightley and Yara Shahidi Sat Front Row With Dramatic Eyes at Chanel’s Cruise Collection

Keira Knightley, Yara Shahidi, Isabelle Huppert and Pedro Almodovar were among the famous faces that had front row seats today at Chanel’s Cruise 2018 collection.

For Karl Lagerfeld’s presentation at the Grand Palais in Paris, Knightley sat alongside her husband, James Righton, and watched heels fashioned in the shape of Ancient Greek columns and gladiator sandals march down the runway.

Chanel ambassador Knightley had on the luxury brand’s chic cropped black coat that had frayed hems over a long dress with lace detail. She completed the look with smokey eyeshadow and a pair of gold pumps.

Meanwhile, “Black-ish” actress Yara Shahidi brought a warm pop of color to the front row in an orange tuxedo blouse with matching flared trousers, and the color continued with her makeup — dramatic arcs around the eyes.

“All smiles ⚡️ Had a lovely day with @chanelofficial,”she said on Instagram, adding. “And going to have a great night live tweeting and watching Zozo on her new adventure in #blackish.”

Lagerfeld explained in his show notes that the collection was inspired by a book he read as a child. “The first book I read was Homer,” he said.  “I’m suggesting going back to move forward. To create the future, you have to pay attention to the past.”
