With the highly anticipated Chanel show opening the final day of Paris Fashion Week, you can always count on the occasion to be a spectacle the style set will be reliving for months. A presentation that draws an A-list crowd, the front-row ensembles often rival the runway looks — and this season was no exception. The Chanel Fall/Winter 2020 show guests turned up and turned out to see Virginie Viard debut her latest collection to the world.

Showgoers gathered at the Grand Palais in Paris on Mar. 3 to see the latest swoon-worthy looks from the iconic French fashion house. Top models Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber walked the runway while famous faces decked out in Chanel looked on. And while the new collection's mix of snap-button pants, puff-sleeve silhouettes, strapless tweed tops, and slouchy boots certainly kept eyes on the runway, there's no denying that the star-studded front row's attire also captured the attention of many.

While some celebrities went the more classic Chanel route, others like singers Janelle Monáe and Maggie Rogers brought their own vibe to the luxury wears. Monáe put an unexpected spin on a tailored Chanel skirt-suit; wearing the structured black and white jacket open with no top underneath to bare some skin. Meanwhile, Rogers gave her matching jacket and trouser duo a laidback, edgy feel with her beachy waves, Chanel-encrusted belt, and sleek Matrix-esque sunglasses.
