ICYMI: The Grand Palais transforms into a beach for Chanel, another Supreme collab, and other noteworthy fashion news
Fashion by the 'gram
Beyonce continues to dazzle
After a bunch of Burberry by Riccardo Tisci looks, Beyoncé turned to another British house — Vivienne Westwood — for her latest show stopping look for The Carters' On The Run II tour. Beyoncé lit up the stage in a sparkling silver sequinned Vivienne Westwood bodysuit and a superhero-worthy tulle cape, accessorised with micro sunglasses. That's how you end the tour with a bang.
Karl Lagerfeld approves of walking barefoot on the beach
Nobody can stage a show quite like Chanel. This time, Kaiser Karl took the fashion set to the beach with azure skies, real sand and lapping waves at the Grand Palais. Completing the tropical scene were lifeguards stationed among the crowd and Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson in the front row wearing a Chanel suit, no less.
Another Supreme collab
For Fall/Winter '18, the streetwear giant has created four pairs of Vans' lesser-known Sid Pro model. The casual low-top silhouette from Vans debuted in 1995, and Supreme has reinvented it in various colourways — black, orange, purple and one in cream with black dots. The Supreme x Vans Sid Pro collection dropped at Supreme stores and supremenewyork.com on Thursday, Oct. 4.
Michael B. Jordan is the global face of Coach Men's

"I've had the chance to get to know Michael over the last couple of years. He always looks great in Coach, so it felt really natural to build our relationship."
Louis Vuitton meets The Game of Thrones
We're saying it here first: This is the It bag for Spring/Summer '19. The Oeuf will come in monogram canvas and exotic skins like crocodile and ostrich. And it'll be much more affordable than the Coquille D' Oeuf Minaudiere we saw from the brand's Spring/Summer '12 collection, which retailed for US$101,000. That couture bag took more than 600 hours and 12,500 pieces of eggshells to create.
Comme des Garçons previewed a Nike collab
CdG's Fall/Winter '18 show gave us the CdG x Nike ACG Mowabb. Now Spring/Summer '19 is all about adding statement metal jewellery chains to the Nike Shox in white and black colourways. The Shox was most popular in the early noughties, and often seen on the feet of Hugh Laurie's cranky character in the TV show House, M.D.
