It was a winter wonderland for Chanel’s final fashion show under the direction of its late Creative Director, Karl Lagerfeld. It was an emotional finale to fashion month after the passing of the legendary 85-year-old designer, who died just two weeks ago on February 19, 2019. Among those leading the AW ‘19 catwalk was longtime ambassador Penelope Cruz, who made a surprise appearance down the runway. The Spanish actress took to Instagram to share a glimpse of the wintry scene at the Grand Palais which became “Chalet Gardenia” and included snow-covered mountains, log cabins and a snowy runway.
Along with a photo of herself, Penelope wrote, “What an honor is has been to walk the last @chanelofficial show designed by #karllagerfeld. What an emotional moment!!!”

Penelope blended in with the snow-covered runway in an all-white ensemble – including a long-sleeve top with multiple ruffles, a furry skirt, statement belt and platform shoes.
