The new looks for 2017 were inspired by Egyptian cinema and distracted from the chill of the Parisian air. All aspects of the show paid homage to the region's golden age for film with embroidered headbands and pieces showcasing the "evil eye." An over-the-top gown summed up the show in a taupe marked with palm trees, flowers in abundance.

For the Paris-based designer, it was all about the lights. There were fireworks in the ensembles bursting with white and black, darker tones and actual fireworks printed on one piece. There was a nod to the '80s, but more so, an over-the-top gown covered in crystals and topped with a crown fit for a princess bride.
Love and lace! The detail was featured on a range of pieces from biker jackets to the more intimate attire. A blush pink gown graced the catwalk with pastel porcelain roses made by hand.
Elaborate jewelry and details took centre stage during the show. Staying away from the over-the-top gowns, the intricate details were front and center, especially in a sleek gown with a golden floor-length veil.
Karl Lagerfeld's house of fashion had a range of looks. Models took on the runway in tweed suits and full sequined feathered gowns. However, it was the final look that mattered the most. Chanel bride, Lily-Rose Depp graced the runway in a ruffled blush gown as she accompanied Karl down the catwalk to close of the show.
