Chanel flies on runway

Stars attend Santa Monica show

HOLLYWOOD — There were no carry-on restrictions — though a quilted Chanel purse was recommended — at the runway show for the venerable label’s Cruise collection, held at Santa Monica airport last Friday night.

As 500 guests lounged on white leather couches in Hangar 8, designer Karl Lagerfeld (in black and white, natch) and his bevy of coltish models arrived in two jets and stormed the rotating catwalk. The Olsen twins — as stoic and expressionless as Anna Wintour — watched from the front row, along with Jessica Alba, Demi Moore and Eva Mendes. While Victoria Beckham leered at outfits like a hungry cheetah ogling gazelles, Oliver Stone and HBO’s Colin Callender appeared bemused by the haute hoopla.
