  • Celebrities Wearing Chanel - From Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively, to Kristen Stewart and Beyonce every star has Chanel in their wardrobe

    Oh, Chanel. Ever since Coco declared ‘I don’t do fashion, I am fashion’, the brand has been synonymous with luxury and glamour, becoming one of the most timeless, covetable names to exist in the fashion realm.

    So it’s no wonder that every celebrity out there wants an interlocking C moment to call their own. From Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively, to Kristen Stewart and Beyonce, every super starlet in Hollywood now has something Chanel in their walk-in-wardrobes.

    For Alexa Chung, it has long been about the label’s Parisian chic separates and prim white blouses. For Keira Knightley, it’s those more-is-more frothy red carpet gowns. Many stars love the iconic tweed suits, and we couldn’t even begin to count how many A-listers have carried a classic 2.55 chain bag over the years.

    The pink Chanel suit that First Lady Jackie Kennedy was wearing when her husband Robert was assassinated in 1968 has gone down in the history books, as have many of the early ensembles that the designer, Coco herself, wore when she changed the 1920s fashion scene with her innovative ideas.

    Fans of current creative director Karl Lagerfeld’s work would say that they love his balance between timelessness and trends – surely Poppy Delevingne’s Chanel wedding dress (the tulle maxi skirt whipped off to leave a haute disco mini for the evening) is the greatest example of this?

    So here we’re looking back at some of the most gorgeous celebrities to ever declare their love for the fashion powerhouse.
