Keira Knightley was among the many stars who turned out for Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week show today (05.10.10).

The British actress – who has been a muse for the iconic French fashion house’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld – joined a whole host of high-profile names for the event at the city’s Grand Palais

Keira’s fellow muse Lily Allen – who was handpicked by Lagerfeld to front the label’s autumn/winter 2009 handbag collection – was also in attendance at the star-studded event, with actress Rachel Bilson and supermodel Claudia Schiffer also taking to the front row.

The Palace of Versailles was recreated inside the Grand Palais especially for the fashion showcase, with more than 80 models parading Chanel’s new creations up and down the runway.

Despite a new modern take, the classic Chanel suit made a re-emergence on the Parisian catwalk, while pretty pastels, feathers and dramatic gothic-inspired pieces played a key role in the spring/summer 2011 collection.
