Cara Delevingne walked the Chanel AW'13 ready-to-wear show at Paris Fashion week and the collection of both monochrome and bright boucle wool jackets teamed with chain detail biker boots had an ultra modern edge while still managing to maintain traditional Coco Chanel style.
Karl Lagerfeld said about the collection: "I want her to look like what I showed you. The boots make the legs endless, and the colors going up, even if it's in darker colors, as it's better for the women, it's very uplifting."

Maybe it's because it's getting close to Christmas, maybe it's because it's Chanel, but Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Metiers d'Art fashion show last night in the grand surroundings of Linlithgo Palace near Edinburgh, Scotland has been described by fashion critics as 'truly exceptional' and 'nothing short of magical'. Brit model of the moment Cara Delevingne walked the show and tweeted backstage, describing her look as 'channeling her inner Mary Queen of Scots'. Cara also re-tweeted pics of her impressive hairstyle created by Sam Mcknight.
According to Vogue, tartan, tweed and Scottish design has always been a favourite of the Chanel brand due to the fact that Coco Chanel dated the Duke of Westminster in 1924. Her designs were influenced by many visits to his estates in the Scottish Highlands. Take a closer look at the beautiful winter warming collection from last night below.
One Direction have landed individual covers of this month's Teen Vogue, and we've fallen for the charm of Harry. The teenage heartthrob wears a tweed blazer on the cover with the collar up over a white top. A tweed blazer is a great piece for guys to have in their wardrobe. You can dress it up or dress it down like Harry with jeans. We love Marks and Spencer's Harris tweed style (£199) and ASOS' slim fit tweed blazer (£75). You can shop more tweed blazers below.
