Chanel waterfall, Vuitton VIPs vie for attention in Paris

The Paris sun shone through the Grand Palais glass ceiling, past Chanel's awe-struck celebrity guests, until it formed a rainbow on a 15-meter (50-foot) waterfall on the final day of Paris Fashion Week.

Showman designer Karl Lagerfeld outdid even himself this season, creating a lush indoor canyon replete with six spectacular waterfalls — all for his 20-minute show.

It vied for attention in Tuesday's ready-to-wear collections with a stellar Louis Vuitton cast list that saw actresses Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander and Michelle Williams chatting together on the front row.

Some of the day's highlights:
