Style Scoop: John Galliano Presented Anna Wintour With BFA Honor, Cara Delevingne Ate A Pretzel at the Chanel Metiers d’art Show & Sings In “Reincarnation” Short Film


Anna Wintour received a big honor at Monday evening’s British Fashion Awards. And who but John Galliano to present the Vogue editor-in-chief and Conde Nast artistic director with her Outstanding Achievement Award? Other honorees included Victoria Beckham, Jonathan Anderson, Simone Rocha, Cara Delevingne, Nicolas Ghesquiere, and Emma Watson. [Women’s Wear Daily]

The Chanel Metiers d’art show kicked off on Tuesday morning at a Rococo palace in Salzburg, Austria. Complete with trimmings of lace, ruffles, and ribbons, the collection possesses a sense of fantasy and whimsy. During his bow, Karl Lagerfeld picked a pretzel up off a table and handed it to model Cara Delevingne who, of course, took a bite out of the thing. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Speaking of Delevingne, the Chanel film, in which she stars alongside Pharrell Williams, debuted Monday evening. The film, titled “Reincarnation,” reenacts an episode of Gabrielle Chanel’s life, when she vacationed at an Austrian resort in 1954. Delevingne showcases her singing skills with an original song (composed by Williams) called “CC The World.” It’s a must-watch. [Glam Style]

And, since we’re talking Chanel… Lagerfeld will speak at Conde Nast’s first luxury conference, called “Hard Luxury,” on April 22. The designer joins Alber Elbaz (artistic director of Lanvin), Patrizio di Marco (president and chief executive officer of Gucci) and Marigay McKee (president of Saks Fifth Avenue) who will also speak at the event at Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio.

In addition to Johnny Coca, Mulberry is adding another name to its crew. Julie Gilhart will join the team as an independent non-executive director. Gilhart is a freelance fashion consultant for companies including Amazon and LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton. She also spent 18 years at Barneys, serving most recently as fashion director. Executive chairman of Mulberry, Godfrey Davis, said, “I…look forward to [Gilhart] bringing her considerable fashion and brand experience to bear as we continue to build Mulberry into a global luxury brand.” [Women’s Wear Daily]
