If only getting front row seats to fashion’s biggest events were as simple as simply asking nicely. Well, when you’re a rising actress and Vogue cover girl like Blake Lively, all you do is ring up your BFF, Anna Wintour—and wham! Bam! Front row at Chanel couture? Thank you, ma’am.
In the October issue of Marie Claire UK, Blake tells how she ended up in the front row at this year’s Paris couture shows of Chanel and Dior:
I was speaking with Anna Wintour and we were just talking about different fashion houses and I said, ‘I love Chanel,’ and she said, ‘You should come with me to the show.’ I also said I loved Dior. She said ‘OK, well I’ll take you to the Chanel and Dior shows and we’ll meet with Karl and John [Galliano] afterwards.’ Insane!
