Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for Celine today got a boost of star power on the front row.
The hotly anticipated Paris Fashion Week spring ’19 show attracted Lady Gaga, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexa Chung, Virgil Abloh and more famous faces eager to see the former Saint Laurent designer’s new direction for the fashion house.
Lady Gaga already got a preview ahead of her arrival — the new Celine16 leather bag, named after the brand’s atelier at 16 Rue Vivienne, which she carried to her seat.
The pop star matched her black bag to her head-to-toe look from Azzedine Alaïa. She looked chic in the label’s python trench from its fall ’18 Haute Couture collection, coordinating with a turtleneck catsuit. Lagerfeld, in his signature gloves, wore a blue blazer with dark shoes.
Chung wore a little black dress with a trench that had fuzzy detail around the cuffs and shawl collar. The designer completed the look with plaid slingbacks that had crystal-embellished cap toes.
