Yesterday, at the Chanel “Metiers d’Art” show held in Dallas, Texas, the elder Fanning showed up (and posed with a car) in a fluffy frock from Chanel’s fall 2013 couture collection. From the neck up, she seemed like she was channeling Carrie Underwood in The Sound of Music, with her impeccable braided updo. But from the neck down, she was a chic, blush-toned, couture piñata. Her dress featured pleated, tissue-paper-like sleeves, and a panel of square, aesthetically pleasing color gradients down the front. She wore a pair of black satin platforms with her Chanel creation, and looked more than ready to view Lagerfeld’s fashion rodeo.
