One of the biggest fashion events of the year takes place today, and it’s happening just across the Pennines in Manchester.
If you’re a fan of fashion, or just a fan of the internet, then you’ll be well aware of the excitement buzzing around Manchester this week.
One of the biggest fashion houses in the world, Chanel, will be holding their Winter fashion show in Manchester today and it’s fair to say that there have been a fair few celebrity sightings.
And although they most definitely have chosen the wrong northern city, we can’t help but get a bit excited about what’s going on just across the Pennines.
Kim Kardashian was spotted at Old Trafford last night, and there’s been sightings of the Hollywood legend Brad Pitt kicking around the Manchester cobbles.
Actor Kristen Stewart was spotted leaving The Stock Exchange Hotel, Gary Neville’s five-star establishment earlier this week, the same hotel which hosted singer Post Malone last year.
Many other names have been thrown around when it comes to guests attending the Metiers D’Art fashion show.
The biggest name drop so far is Margot Robbie, Australian actress and star of this summer’s runaway box office hit Barbie. Margot has famously been one of Chanel’s most recognisable ambassadors, so it wouldn’t be out of the question for her to walk the streets of the Northern Quarter today.
The brand’s other famous faces include fellow actor Timothee Chalamet, who is the ambassador for Bleu De Chanel, and also tipped to be visiting Manchester this week.
There are currently huge billboards plastered with his face all over the city centre.
Some of the most famous celebrities in the entire world have been in the UK for various events in the last week, including Beyonce and Jay-Z, and Taylor Swift. Will any of them extend their stay to come up north?
And then there are those with a local connection, like for Manchester United legend David Beckham, with high-fashion wife and Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.
Harry Styles could crop up too, with his roots just down the road in Cheshire.
We’ll be waiting patiently to see who crops up and steps on Manchester territory, but we’re just hoping that they’ll host the show in Leeds next year.
