The show’s mostly American models said they felt “goosebumps”—and not just because of the sub-freezing temperatures. They were also stepping out under the hallowed dome of the Grand Palais, the Art Deco temple where the luxury French label Chanel holds its couture shows. Karl Lagerfeld, the forthright Chanel designer, was unfortunately not on hand to give his view of the proceedings. Three of his favorite models—Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner—were among the talent on the runway. The trio was joined by the likes of newcomers Martha Hunt and Taylor Hill.
