Chanel Just Launched A Goddamn Rocket At Their Fashion Show

Mission control, this is Chanel.

As you may or may not know, it was recently Paris Fashion Week, which is a pretty big deal. Especially for the likes of Chanel.

Chanel are known for putting on, shall we say, extravagant shows.

In the past the brand has made a feminist protest, an airport lounge, and a Chanel supermarket for their runways.

I really wish I could get my groceries from that supermarket tbh.

So obviously this time had to be something spectacular, something monumental, something unforgettable. Well, Chanel didn't disappoint because they basically did a fucking ROCKET LAUNCH.

Let's just reiterate in case you didn't catch that: A GODDAMN FUCKING ROCKET LAUNCH.

OK so obviously it wasn't an actual rocket launch but it may as well have been.

Like, the rocket actually took off (as much as is possible without actually launching a rocket into outer space).

The models themselves were basically dressed like astronauts.

Nothing says fashion like a foil blanket, especially when it comes in a variety of colours.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like Chanel has done their own line of astronaut helmets yet, so these futuristic headband things will have to do.

But seriously, if those helmets ever become available, I'll be first in line.

And obviously Kendall and the Hadid sisters were there, rocking their astro-chic.

The front row was packed out with celebs too, including the likes of Pharrell, Cara Delevingne, and Lily-Rose Depp.

So Chanel meets NASA. Who would've guessed that would ever happen?
