Check out this incredible paper-installation for Chanel‘s 2009 Spring/Summer Haute Couture show. AMAZING or what?

According to the Chanel website, the installation was made up of 7000 handmade paper flowers, using 4000 square metres of paper, and took a total of 4800 hours of work to assemble. I guess Chanel has a pretty good budget for these things! ;)

The models also wore stunning paper-flower headpieces…

ps) How weird is Karl Lagerfeld? Super talented, super weird.
