The high rollers strolled into the casino, swathed in millions of dollars worth of diamonds, and sat at the tables under an Art Deco ceiling and started to play. It could have been any time of the day or night, anywhere in the world where the super wealthy disport themselves behind closed doors—or a scene loaded with the decadent frisson of a Helmut Newton shoot from the seventies or eighties. Actually: This was the latest living installation at the Grand Palais to have sprung from the imagination of that great croupier of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld. And the members of the “Circle Privé”? A constellation of actors and modeling aristocracy:Julianne Moore, Geraldine Chaplin, Vanessa Paradis, Stella Tennant, Alice Dellal,Lara Stone, and others—each wearing a couture piece designed specifically for them and led out by Kristen Stewart, in a gaminely enviable black velvet pantsuit. And all of them dripping in diamond jewelry, recreated from Coco Chanel‘s original 1932 designs.
