Willow Smith Makes A Strong Case For Relaxed Footwear And Formal Gowns At The Chanel Métiers D’Art Show In Paris.

In early December Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel hosted its bi-annual Métiers D’Art show to showcase the artisanal craftsmanship on which the brand has built its identity. Its partner workshops, which provide lace, embroidery, silverwork, and more, were on full display during the off-calendar show, which migrates around the world every year. For the 2016-2017 show, Lagerfeld hosted Métiers D’Art in the newly reopened Ritz Paris (once the home of Gabrielle Chanel herself) where models and style icons like Cara Delevingne, Soo Joo Park, Natalie Westling, Mathilhde Warnier, Kristen Stewart and Lily-Rose Depp all flounced across the carpeted floor and wove their way between tables of fashion editors and friends of Chanel. Willow Smith opened the presentation with a stripped-down performance of her newest track, “November 9.” And she kicked the whole thing off in a dreamy gothic-inspired lace-and-fur ensemble, and what appeared to be an elegant pair of hard soled sneakers.

We say yes to sneakers and formal gowns but Willow Smith in her soft lace camisole and a mink embroidered Chanel skirt lightly caressing the tops of her Chanel slippers takes it from a trend status to classic elegance.

What do you think? Will you try sneakers and formal wear?
