The Best Chanel Runway, Celebrity, and Street Style Looks of 2019

The past year was one of major change for Chanel. With Karl Lagerfeld's passing in February, the house was required to rework its entire structure and move forward to continue the legacy. Since then, it's become clear that the Parisian label is firmly rooted in the industry and shows no signs of fading away. Throughout the last few seasons, there has been a slew of standout Chanel moments spanning three different categories: runway, street style, and celebrity. Each one produced inspiring ensembles that ranged from red carpet moments at the Cannes Film Festival all the way to the streets of Paris during fashion week. Ahead, discover the top Chanel looks from the year.
