Chanel's 2010 cruise show takes place in Venice today, but showgoers arrived last night to enjoy dinner with the Kaiser and his entourage. He arrived two hours late to the event, but no one cared, because all the editors are so delighted to be in Venice and enjoying freebies from Chanel. In fancy hotels. With gold duck faucets in the bathrooms. Instead of groaning and stomping out as they might at a late fashion show, when Karl walked in, they gave him a standing ovation. But Venice has its downsides — like mosquitoes. One stung Lady Amanda Harlech in the eye. [Style.com]
