Old Hollywood was made new last night thanks to Chanel, which brought together the hottest young names in entertainment for a Parisian feast in one of Tinseltown’s oldest backyards. The dinner party was held to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Gabrielle Chanel’s first – and only – jewelry collection Bijoux de Diamants, designed in 1932. The planetarium-style pop-up exhibition included both the archive pieces and the new anniversary collection in one shimmering display.
“I wanted to return to the essence of 1932 and harmonize the message around three symbols: the comet, the moon and the sun. Each celestial body shines with its own light,” he said Patrice LeguereauDirector of Chanel Fine Jewelry Creation Studio.
On one of the larger stages, Chanel took inspiration from Leguéreau, creating a space filled with hanging clouds of baby’s breath, a ceiling of twinkling stars and a huge silver moon.
Marion Cotilard, Karen O, Andra day, Maggie Rogers, Jurnee Smollet, Kaitlyn Dever, Cazie David, Choe Zhao, Whitney Peak, Grace Morton and more filled the tables with laughter, cheers and once dancing Phoebe Bridger surprised the audience with an invigorating set by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
