Chanel Holds A Protest At Paris Fashion Week Because Of Course

If Jean Paul Gaultier's "beauty pageant" was the most extravagant show at Paris Fashion Week, Karl Lagerfeld's protest is certainly the most relevant.

Leave it to Chanel to turn the runway into a star-studded demonstration, complete with a faux Parisian boulevard, a quilted mega phone and of course, Cara Delevingne as the ringleader. Models held signs that said, "Make fashion not war," "He for she," (which is a nod to Emma Watson's now famous UN speech) and "History is her story." Lagerfeld has yet again proven that he is the master of the fashion show, this time blending two of our favorite things -- fashion and feminism.

But let's not forget about the "protesters." Chanel is no stranger to featuring major models, but this army is more impressive than ever. Everyone from Fashion Week sweetheart Kendall Jenner to Georgia May Jagger to Gisele Bundchen made appearances.

Now, we're not saying this is the most effective form of protest, but it is certainly the most stylish. Head to to see the entire Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection.
