Chanel Exhibition: Instagramming The Little Black Jacket

On Sunday I headed over to the Saatchi Gallery on the Kings Road for a nosey at The Little Black Jacket Exhibition: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.   

You’ll find a total of 113 photographs on display at the gallery that range from black and white to striking colour, modelled on a range of "friends of the House" - basically a selection of stunningly beautiful people such as models Stella Tennant, Edie Campbell, Milla Jovovich to celebrities like Alexa Chung and Sarah Jessica Parker.

What I enjoyed most about the exhibition was the way Lagerfeld has perfectly captured each individual personality, from those who have adapted the garment to reflect their own sense of style to the more straight-laced.

Below are some of my favourites, all in instagram naturally.

The exhibition will be open to the public until Sunday 28th October 2012 and what's more its free entry so there is no excuse not to check it out. I even managed to get my hands on one of three free posters being given away.
