Chanel's Haute Couture Show: Jared's Pink Boots, Kristen's Sheer Pants, Kendall's Feathered 'Wings' and More

07/08/2014 at 12:52 PM ET

Of all the high-profile Paris fashion shows, Chanel usually gives us the most to discuss. Whether it’s sneakers on the models, a supermarket-themed set or surprising model choices, creative director Karl Lagerfeld knows how to get people talking. And this week, his Haute Couture show was no different.

First up: The always-buzzy front row. This time around, Lagerfeld enlisted pals Lily Collins (sporting a new haircut to go with her floral cropped sweater and sparkling striped pencil skirt); Jared Leto (no haircut, but his noteworthy chaps-adjacent pants and shell-pink suede boots definitely had us intrigued); and current face of Chanel Kristen Stewart (also showing off a brand-new haircut, which you may not have noticed due to the sheer harem pant/brief/crop top ensemble she selected).

Also attending (but not pictured): 50 Shades of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson, wearing an all-leather look (Christian Grey would be proud!) and Nina Dobrev — plus Baz Luhrmann, who directed the upcoming Chanel No. 5 ads. Notably absent: Luhrmann’s muse Gisele Bündchen.

But really, who was looking at the front row when so much was happening on the runway? Kendall Jenner made her return to the Chanel runway — and showed her powers of transformation — in a full-length plaid tweed column with feathery sleeves, glittering embellishments and a flipped-forward, majorly teased ponytail.

Joining her on the runway for the final look of the show: A pregnant bride in a truly gorgeous wedding gown with baroque embroidery on the cape and buttons down the front. (And our favorite part? Flat sandals for both! Let’s hope that trend takes off).

I literally hate all of the things pictured here, I know that high fashion is weird, but none of this looks good.

Also, can Kristen Stewart be showing any less emotion? I know that it’s kind of beating a dead horse, but she doesn’t give us much to work with.

Every outfit on this entire page is hideous…

Kendall Jenner does not have a high fashion look to her at all, if that’s what she’s aiming for. She has her mother’s wide face; seems more suitable for mainstream modeling.

The only Kartrashian that has any talent is Kendall. She is a stunning model. Without a doubt her mother will pimp her talent and keep putting disgusting Kylie with her. I wish there was some way she could break away from that family and go on her own. She has the potential of a good career.

How much $ is the Kartrashian family paying to People mag and others to keep every trashy moment of their life relative?
Nobody cares! Can’t they just go away?

Seriously, Kristen Stewart it is extremely disgusting to see, she is always with a bored face, wearing stu— clothes. Enough with her, just go away please.

Loathe the Kardashian family and the influence they had on dumbing down America, but I guess that’s the idiots fault who applaud them. I am guessing she is an ok model because I doubt those fashion houses would have her if she wasn’t…don’t think t hey care if she is a Jenner or not, if she couldn’t wear the clothes the way they want, they wouldn’t care who she is.
