Anna Wintour's French Toast!

Anna Wintour is wearing Chanel Haute Couture that recently walked the runway (less than a week!) - only a woman with such high fashion powers could pull this off.

Bernard Arnault, Karl Lagerfeld, Stefano Pilati, Donatella Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Alber Elbaz, Franca Sozzani and Riccardo Tisci were among those who assembled at the Élysée Palace in Paris Wednesday to watch French President Nicholas Sarkozy decorate a Chanel-clad Anna Wintour with a Legion d’Honneur award of merit. Afterwards, a broader swath of the international fashion pack was invited to toast the prize at the gilded residence of Charles Rivkin, United States Ambassador to France. British-born Wintour already boasts an Order of the British Empire. 

“We had this very nice cocktail, where Anna made a very funny speech,” said Lagerfeld.  - WWD
