There was much debate, and many worthy collections didn’t make the cut, but we think the final ranking demonstrates the best moments and the most unexpected collections. Enjoy!

1973: The Beginning Of Everything

In the now-legendary catwalk fash-off of 1973, it was the kings of French chic (Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy et al) versus the new names from New York (Oscar de la Renta, Halston and Anne Klein). At stake? The designers’ pride, but also a joint goal to raise money to restore the palace to its former glory.

1992: Madonna Goes Topless For Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier created Madonna’s infamous ‘cone bra’ for her Blonde Ambition world tour in 1990. So, where do you go from there? Well, Madge ditched the bra and proudly walked au natural down Gaultier’s runway in 1992.

2010: Horses At Hermès

Jean Paul Gaultier spent seven years at the helm of Hermès and so, to celebrate his departure, he staged a stampede. Leather capes, equestrian boots and hats from the Seville riding school formed the look and the show was set in an authentic riding arena, complete with chandeliers. Now that’s what we call an exit.

2013: Marc Jacobs’ Louis Vuitton Swansong

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Marc Jacobs bid au revoir to Louis Vuitton back in 2013, 16 years after he took to the helm. To ‘celebrate’ he re-purposed parts from his archive of spectacular sets, but painted them all black to match his sombre showgirl collection.

2014: Supermarket Chic At Chanel

Never one to do things by halves, Karl Lagerfeld turned his catwalk into an actual supermarket for Chanel’s AW14 show. This time around Karl Lagerfeld turned the mundane, everyday errand into an epic fashion show this morning at the Grand Palais, where he staged an entire supermarket called “Chanel Shopping Center”.

2015: Karl Lagerfeld’s New Look For Chanel: Fashion Manifesto

For the Chanel catwalk show, the Grand Palais was transformed – elaborately (an adjective almost universally applicable to Lagerfeld’s actions) – into a re-creation of a Paris boulevard. At ground level, the scene was set for another typical aspect of French streetlife, the manifestation. In place of Chanel’s typically lavish seating were rows of benches divided by stainless steel guard rails. One of the placards on the catwalk, however, was painted in support of He For She, Emma Watson’s campaign for men and women to understand and support the principles of gender equality.

2016: In Serene Garden, Lagerfeld Fetes Nature For Chanel

Known for his extravagant runway settings, designer Karl Lagerfeld led fashionistas into a serene garden at the Chanel haute couture catwalk show in Paris. The designer sent models out of a wooden house down a garden path across a neat green lawn. Lagerfeld’s nature theme was evident in the embroidery on dresses, including colorful flowers and wooden birds as well as in the shoes: rounded cork wedges.
