For Karl Lagerfeld’s Resort shows he always really pulls out every magic trick he can. The destinations for the show have been all over the world, from Tokyo, Rio, Texas and everywhere in between. And in light of Obama’s newly mended relationship with Cuba, Lagerfeld decided to piggy back on it and bring his Resort 2017 show there.
Aside from the beautiful scenery, all the celebs got to witness his Cuba-inspired show featuring Gisele Bundchen and Tilda Swinton among others. Scroll down below to get a peek at our favorite moments from the show.
Gisele Is Still Queen In The Modeling World
She may have unofficially retired from modeling, but I think it’s safe to say that she will always have time to walk in a Chanel show. Karl’s interpretation of Cuba spanned in a lot of different ways, like this beret and matching fire engine red knit top and skirt.
Every Single Thing Was Directly Inspired by Cuba
Obviously the clothes had a particular inspiration but it was cool to even see that guests were taken to the show in hundreds of bright, multicolored 1950s American cars for the evening. A little ironic that Karl has brought such decadence to Cuba? Absolutely, but decadence is Karl’s middle name so this was expected.
Androgyny Is Back Thank God
Stella Tennant really pioneered this look, and has made it her own and continued to have a successful career without altering her persona. Did I mention that’s she 45 years old and still rocking it?
There Was A Lot of Dancing
Models danced to Cuban music as they strutted down the runway, matching the flowing silhouette of the skirts and tulle overlays.
Karl Really Loves Kids
And as usual, Karl closed out the show with Hudson Kroenig, his godson whose father regularly models in the Chanel cologne advertisements. Yes, we’re jealous of this toddler.
Diversity Improved A Little (Not as much as we would like)
We’re bummed Karl didn’t use any curvy models in this show, but at least we got to see him use Cuban people in the show, and Cuban models instead of appropriating and tanning models to make them look Cuban.
