Over the years, Karl Lagerfeld has transformed the Grand Palais, Chanel's show venue, into a supermarket, art gallery, and IT center.
This time around, for Paris Fashion Week, Chanel's creative director showed a space-themed collection. It included a Chanel rocket that simulated a sparks-flying launch into orbit.
Before the rocket ship rose 33 feet in the air, there was a countdown to liftoff. After it took off, Elton's Rocket Man was played.
Pharrell Williams and Lily-Rose Depp were among those in attendance.
